Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OCS from an everyday user's perspective: conference managers, presenters, and directors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OCS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OCS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OCS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OCS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OCS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

I have a small problem with my OCS (2.1.1). I have created a conference and withing that scheduled a conference. Everything seems to work OK except I cannot register to just attend the conference. When I create a new user (without assigning any roles) and go back to "About" page I have the following options available:
» Submit a Proposal
» Register as a Conference Reviewer
» Register to attend the conference: Registration is not currently accepted.
The first two are links, while the third one is just a text.

I was trying whole afternoon to figure out why "Registration is not currently accepted." and couldn't find anything. I set up all available open dates and closing dates to include today (August, 26), entered two registration types (also with appropriate dates), DIDN'T check option "Do not make this registration type publicly available.". I was going back and forth and couldn't find what I am missing.

Please, let me know where I might be making a mistake.
Best regards,

Hi Paul,

Can you try going to the Payments page; choosing either Manual or Paypal option (Manual is fine); and saving that page? See http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3440 for a reference.

Hello James,

thank you! It works! I wouldn't guess that unless I was desperate enough to hit all possible buttons on that webpage hoping one might work.
It's definitely a bug.

Thanks once again!
