Description Tyler Mitchell 2008-07-26 19:50:32 PDT
Several conference level settings would be better as suited as schedule conference settings.  In particular the stylesheets and header/footer sections.  Ideally these settings would be available at both levels and, perhaps, allow overriding from one level or the other depending on whether it has populated values or not.  With our main conference it keeps the same name from year to year, but the style and logo changes.  For half the year we also have two events in planning stage, so we can't simply override the "old" theme/logo with a new one - we need both.

I see code in the template already for having a sched_conf level stylesheet, but without db settings to match it, the code isn't being used.  I've done it this way, a while ago:
http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2784

Now I know more about the programming, I will try again and maybe try to fix the forms to demonstrate.  But I'm not so sure about the header/footer sections and what to do, so I thought I would bring this up generally here.

I'm not sure if the same concept applies for OJS.

I'm sure this isn't a new idea for you guys and you've kicked it around before.. but if you think we should just go and create separate conferences for each instead of using schedule conferences for each year, please let me know.  I'm okay to do it, but really breaks the intended model, in my opinion.
