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.

If you´re running everything on a personal computer instead of a web server you might be in trouble. I´ve tested the system on a Windows XP without success, because of the addressing is different ("\") than in Unix. Because of this problem I could not upload files through the system and, since I had no email server installed either, no messages were sent.

You may test the system, though, for all the interactivity works, including all input information.

The files path is where all submission files are uploaded, and must be a physical address inside the hardrive or server (ex.: /usr/home/files/). The trailng slash must be entered or you will encounter addressing problems later. It should be created prior to installation and should be outside of the root folder of the system.

The base URL, even though I believe it´s not used anymore, is the web address of the system (ex.: http://www.myjournal.com/). On Windows you may type http://localhost/foldername/ojs/
