Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OCS from an everyday user's perspective: conference managers, presenters, and directors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OCS 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 OCS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OCS 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 OCS 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 OCS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Extend number of characters in "Track Title" field

I am running OCS and I need to insert track titles for an upcoming conference. Some Tracks have a long title and the field cannot include it all. Is there a way to extend the number of characters of the field?

Thank you,

Hi Claudio,

Edit templates/manager/tracks/trackForm.tpl and find the markup that displays the title field:
Code: Select all
<tr valign="top">
        <td width="20%" class="label">{fieldLabel name="title" required="true" key="track.title"}</td>
        <td width="80%" class="value"><input type="text" name="title[{$formLocale|escape}]" value="{$title[$formLocale]|escape}" id="title" size="40" maxlength="120" class="textField" /></td>
Extend the maxlength="120" to whatever you like.
