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.

Git: You can access our public Git Repository here. Comprehensive Git usage instructions are available on the wiki.

Bugzilla: You can access our Bugzilla report tracker here.

Search: You can use our Google Custom Search to search across our main website, the support forum, and Bugzilla.

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.

Hi all,
There is a need in the organization to create a conference with no academic content to publish. This means the conference will consist of a set of lectures and will have some pdf file as marketing or promoting the conference – but that's all. Having no articles but only discussion is quite common.
So, how is the workflow should change? (workflow=ordered sequence of operations).
The requirement is to bypass or neutralize the whole part of inserting an article, reviewing it and edit it – Excluding this we want to include attaching pdf of promotion to the conference and instructions to other departments users such as graphics.
Where is the workflow "defined" and can it be changed using darabase definition tables (any documentation of the db ?)

Hi amdorino,

The soul of OCS is the submission management workflow, and if you're not using that you might find that you'd be better off with a simple CMS like Drupal or Wordpress. OCS could do the job but since you won't be using the biggest piece of the system I suspect you'll struggle with it.
