orphaned titles from import testing

Postby dps1 » Wed May 23, 2007 2:11 pm

I have been testing the XML import feature but now see that all my tested imports are clearly visible under "Browse by Title". How do I delete all these orphaned and erroneous entries? I have also been messing with creating new users but it appears that deleting the users doesn't completely remove the email addresses from the backend tables. I cannot add that email address once again because the system complains that the email is already in use. I do not have direct access to the MySQL tables because my OJS is hosted at SFU.

Hi dps1,

You can delete articles by sending them to the Archive (on the submission's Summary page, as Editor) then deleting them from the Archive (again, as Editor).

When you unenroll users from a journal, that account is not deleted; see, for example, http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1647 for some discussion of this.
