How to make uploading a proposal file mandatory?

Postby alexander » Wed Mar 30, 2011 1:25 am

Hello. I use OCS 2.3.3-1. I want to setup my conference for submitting "Abstract and proposal together". But during the submission process it is possible to avoid uploading proposal file (after clicking "Save and continue" without uploading a file the message "Are you sure you wish to continue without uploading a submission file?" appears). The question is how to make uploading a proposal file mandatory?

Hi Alexander,

There isn't currently a way to do this without modifying the code. If you have developer resouces on hand, ask them to take a look a the code and give it a shot. Similar questions have also been asked on the forum before -- try searching for something like "mandatory field" or "field required". If you need any pointers, let us know.

Dear James,

Could you give me some advise? I would like to try updating the source by myself. I saw a uploadSubmissionFile function at classes/author/form/submit/AuthorSubmitStep2Form.inc.php and a page template at templates/author/submit/step2.tpl. Do I need to update these 2 files? Thanks.
