Documentation: The OJS Technical Reference and the OJS API Reference are both available from the OJS Documentation page. While these are OJS-specific, the OCS codebase is similar enough to OJS they should be of help. There is also an [url=http://pkp.sfu.ca/ocs_documentation[/url]OCS Documentation[/url] page with some more general documentation that might also be of interest.

Questions and discussion are welcome, but if you have a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a technical support question, try the OCS Technical Support subforum.

Feature suggestion: smtp_auth = NONE

Postby kurkoski » Tue May 20, 2008 6:52 pm

For an SMTP server which does not use authetication, the correct config.inc.php setting appears to be to comment out smtp_auth. However, this is not obvious as the right thing to do.

My suggestion is that there should be an explicit option, like smtp_auth = NONE. If this is described in the comment above smpt_auth in config.inc.php, it should make it clear enough how to handle this SMTP server configuration. This should be suitable for people like me who try to get things to work by trying all settings.

This suggestion is a result of me taking some time to do something simple. See viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3138 .

Thank you for this nice software.
