Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Registration Form

I have registration set to open in the future. When anyone comes across the registration page, the radio buttons for selecting Registration Type and the Register button are grayed out. This seems fine. However, if a non-logged-in user comes across the page, they see this:

User Account

You are not currently logged in. In order to register for this conference, you will need an account. If you already have one, click here to log in; otherwise, fill in the information below in order to create a new account.

Followed by a rather long form with all of the fields disabled. If possible, I think it might be better if the form wasn't there at all? I know that some users will keep trying to click for some time and some will contact the conference director and say that there was a problem with the registration form. Also, perhaps there could be a custom message like:

You are not currently logged in. In order to register for this conference (beginning {$openingDate}), you will need an account. If you do not already have an account, then you may click here to sign up and then come back to complete your conference registration after {$openingDate}.
