[Question] Is there a way to add a feature to select roles at login on the login page?

I’m looking for a way to add the select roles feature to my ojs. When User A who has the roles of author and reviewer intends to log in, on the login page User A can choose between roles as author or reviewer.

So when User A logs in by selecting roles as author, then User A’s role as Reviewer is automatically inactive.

Is there a way to add this feature? Like a third party plugin or something.

I’m currently using OJS version 3, to be precise, OJS version

Below is a screenshot of the International Journal of industrial Ergonomics login page, I took it as just an illustration of the features I want to add to my ojs.

Thank you for your concern

Hi @agumilar,

You might want to have a look at how this is handled in later versions of OJS: https://docs.pkp.sfu.ca/learning-ojs/en/users-and-roles#permissions-and-roles, since the version of OJS you’re using is quite out-of-date and no longer supported. You could even try this out in one of our demo sites, to get a sense of how it might work differently than your current version: https://pkp.sfu.ca/software/ojs/demo/
