additional information

Postby m.giordano » Wed Jan 30, 2008 11:06 am

Hi all,

we need to publish additional information about the hosted Conference, such as Venue, Accommodation, Keynote Speakers...
I tried adding an 'About' Item in Section 1.6 but it appears under subsection 'Policies' which is out of scope.
Is there a way to customize the About page adding a subsection or controlling the subsection under which an Item is listed?

Hi Marco,

Apologies for the delay of my response.

You can certainly edit the template file for the "about" page, to more closely approximate how you want items displayed. It's at templates/about/index.tpl; the code that displays the additional policy items is the foreach statement around line 43:

Code: Select all
        {foreach key=key from=$customAboutItems item=customAboutItem}
                {if $customAboutItem.title!=''}<li>&#187; <a href="{url op="editorialPolicies" anchor=custom`$key`}">{$customAboutItem.title|escape}</a></li>{/if}

You could move that into its own heading, say.

But the information you want to add would be more appropriate as program information, would it not? The 'additional items' option under Website Management 1.6 is meant as a way to supplement or extend conference policies. I would suggest looking into posting Venue, Accommodation, and Keynote Speaker information in various other areas, such as under Additional Homepage Content (Website Management Step 2.1); the two Scheduled Conference Description boxes (Conference Setup Step 1.1); and possibly under Program as well.
