Installation Instructions
-----------------------------------------------

Move the 'postgres' folder to the root level of the project.
You'll need to create a database with the desired name manually. 
Run dev/build and you should be set.

Usage Overview
-----------------------------------------------

See the documentation link for examples of PostgreSQL-specific functionality.

Known issues:
-----------------------------------------------

All column and table names must be double-quoted.  PostgreSQL automatically lower-cases columns, and your queries will fail if you don't.

Ts_vector columns are not automatically detected by the built-in search filters.  
That means if you're doing a search through the CMS on a ModelAdmin object, it will use LIKE queries which are very slow.  
If you're writing your own front-end search system, you can specify the columns to use for search purposes, and you get the full benefits of T-Search.

If you are using unsupported modules, there may be instances of MySQL-specific SQL queries which will need to be made database-agnostic where possible.
