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.

Hello C.N.,

Your best bet is probably to suppress NOTICE and WARNING error messages, either by modifying the system-wide php.ini, or by adding the appropriate ini_set calls to each OCS PHP script. (See http://ca.php.net/manual/en/function.ini-set.php for more information on ini_set; error message reporting options are documented in php.ini.)

Alternately, change php.ini so that error messages are re-routed to a log file and not displayed.

OCS is a few years old now, and while it's still perfectly serviceable, PHP has moved on somewhat.
