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.

Hi all,

we would like that, once the review process has been completed, the submitted documents would be readable even by non-authenticated users. Is this possible by means of some option, or we have to modify the code?

Regards

Marco

Hi Marco,

This is not a problem. Just make sure that, as Conference Manager, accepted papers and/or abstracts are posted to the site on the proper date/time, and are not protected by any sort of delayed open access. You can do this under User Home->Conference Manager->Conference Timeline; scroll down to the bottom of the page, and make sure the options you want are correctly set.

Cheers,
James

Hi James,

we had already tried to setup the flags you refer to.
But here's what happens and how we set the first three flags of the 'Website Posting' group in the timeline page:
- the first two flags are selected with a date before today
- regardless of how the third ('Delay open access until') flag is set (in the past, in the future or unflagged), an anonymous user can see the list of authors and publications but is referred to the login page when trying to access them. If I login as a accounted user (author, director, reviewer...) I can see and access them with no problem.

Is there any other setting we ignore?

Regards

Marco

Hi Marco,

What do you have set under Conference Site Managment --> Website Management Step 2.4?

Hi James,

I forgot to write this, but we have selected the 'Provide open access to all visitors to the website' option, of course.

Cheers

Hi James,

we have worked it out!
We missed another setting in Conference Site Management > Website Management > Step 1.4 (Archive Access Policy)...

Thanks

Hi Marco,

Good to hear you found that one! Tell you the truth, I had overlooked it too. We would've been going in circles for a while. So it's a learning experience for everyone today.

Cheers,
James
