Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

I noticed that there is a file for an abstraction layer for Postgres in include/db.pgsql.inc.php, are there any plans to distribute OJS with support for Postgres? Or is there a way already to use Postgres instead of MySQL?

We have no plans to support PostgreSQL on OJS 1.x. I don't think there is a lot of MySQL-specific code/SQL, so it may be possible to get it running without too much work, but we have no plans to do so ourselves.

OJS 2.0 will support PostgreSQL (although MySQL is still our primary target platform, so we may not do thorough testing on PostgreSQL if time constraints become an issue).
