Auto-Notification of imported users and password problems

Postby » Thu Jun 15, 2006 7:58 am

While the auto-email function appears to working in other areas (reset password, e.g.) my system does not appear to be generating and sending the auto-notification e-mail message to each new imported user.

I'm also confused about the password creation process. I'd like to set every imported user's password to the same thing ("my_password", e.g.) and allow them to reset it after they log in. But I can't log into any imported user accounts using the same password.

Advice on both of these issues would be helpful

Hi jgill,

Did you import your XML several times? OJS only sends notification emails to users when they are created, and if you previously imported your XML without the email notification checkbox selected, the users will already be created.

With regard to passwords, are you specifying an encryption type other than "plaintext"?
