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.

Track Directors can't Complete submissions

Banging my head against the wall with this one... I'm setting up OCS to accept abstracts only; Track Directors will read the abstracts and make decisions. (Similar set up as the OCS Quick Guide For One Time Events.) Everything's working hunky-dory until the Track Director clicks "Complete" to move the submission to the list of Accepted Presentations -- they get a 404/Page not found error. (The site is trying to access [sched. conference URL]/trackDirector/submissions/submissionsAccepted.)

The Complete function does actually work -- if you use the back button to get back to submission page, Complete is greyed out and Remove is activated. If you click on Remove, you get a 404 error as well. I can't figure out why it's showing the 404 and not the accepted presentations list.

If a Director (as opposed to a Track Director) does the same thing, though, it works fine. After clicking Complete, they get redirected to the list of accepted presentations.

I'm running OCS, tho' I had the same problem before I upgraded.
