Conference Schedule - item ordering

Postby dhague » Thu May 07, 2009 9:47 am

Hi there,

I created a conference schedule with a special event, which was a dinner for the attendees the night before the conference. When I view the Conference Schedule page, the event appears after the conference sessions, which is somewhat counter-intuitive. Looking at the code, this is because the list of events is added to the list of sessions, with no sorting.

I would like to suggest that the events and sessions are displayed together, in chronological order. In that way, evening events will appear next to that day's sessions, and a pre-conference event will appear before the sessions.

On a similar note, our users have found that having the Locations listed before the Sessions on the Schedule page is a bit confusing - perhaps the ordering of these sections could be a configurable option in the site setup?

Best regards, and thanks for a great system,
Darren Hague

Hi Darren,

Another user has made similar requests and made the modifications himself, see http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4406 for more info (you may be able to get some help from him if you want to make the modifications yourself). I've also filed this as a feature request: http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=4260, feel free to CC yourself to the bug entry to be informed of updates on it's implementation.
