[Solved] Given Name Field Missing in Registration Form

Hello, I did a fresh install of OJS 3.1.2 to get rid of the Orcid plugin from our implementation. I am trying to migrate the data over to the new install but I cannot get the old registration form back. There has to be a given name in the registration request but there is no field to put one. How do I go about getting back the original registration form? Thank You

I guess what I’m asking is, some how given Name and family Name fields got changed to ##user.firstName## *
##user.lastName## *

I was wondering if there is a way to change them back or if there is another registration form that I can point the link to.


Hi @Jeremy_Jones,

I suspect you’re seeing first name/last name fields because you’re using a theme plugin that isn’t compatible with OJS 3.1.2. Check to make sure it’s compatible. The first/middle/last name convention was changed to given/family name with OJS 3.1.2, as part of the support for multilingual names that was added.

Thank you. Updating the theme seems to have worked.
