Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Hi, I found two folders


Can anybody give some introduction about the ideas of having two folders? And what are the difference between contents?

Thank you!

Hi huangs3,

The classes/plugins path contains the code that OJS and OCS use to support plugins, i.e. the plugin registry, plugin settings code, etc. The actual plugins themselves live in the plugins directory, each in a category that defines how it interacts with the system (e.g. "generic", "importexport", etc).

Have a look at the OJS Technical Reference, available from the Documentation section of the OJS web site; it has some information on OJS plugins, and OCS plugins work the same way. (Ideally we hope to eventually have a set of common plugins that work for both.)
