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.

Adding new menu items

I'm a newbie digging as deep and fast as I can into this system.

I am interested in it's extensibility issues. For example, how to create content that is more or less text based, and make it available as a linked item in the Conference Information menu system.

Some areas are very common here:

Scientific Committee (Generally a list of Academics)
Keynote Speakers (For example I would want to make a list of three, put in some good marketing type text about them, and include a mugshot)
Conference Dinner (This is something that needs to be explained with google maps etc.)
How to Arrive

So generally the question is how do i add in information not generally controlled by the system, but pertinent to a specific event?

Thanks in advance,

Right, it is a very useful plug-in for creating new pages. Which method do you suggest to add new menu items linking to the pages created with this plug-in.
Many thanks in advance,
