Changing required fields for registration

Are you a Director, Presenter, Reviewer or Conference Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

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.

My department has installed OCS and I'm using it to organize a one-shot conference. Visitors to the conference web page who hit the "SUBMIT A PAPER" link are required to register. One field requires that they submit a URL. How can I make this field optional (rather than required)?

Hello melino,

I don't think the URL field in user registration is required.
I would also HIGHLY recommend that you use the latest OCS stable version (2.3.4).

Hi melino,

Just to echo Ramon's statement, that field has never been required -- your instance may have been customized at some point.
