What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

Hi chayton,

The best way to accomplish this is through the user import/export plugin. I'd suggest looking at that if you haven't already.

Hi chayton,

To see how passwords are encrypted in OJS, have a look at the functions that generate them in Validation.inc.php. OJS uses the user name as part of the hashed password.
