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.

Problems renaming a conference path

Postby justin » Thu May 13, 2010 7:01 pm

Hi There

In my conference settings, I have used the wrong combination of capital and lower case letters for the path name.
Eg Path is currently set to "APathLikeThis"
The conference organiser doesn't want this because the resultant URLs look strange with this mix of cases.
So... the path letters are correct, but I want to rename them to "apathlikethis"
However, when I try and change it, I get the error message
The selected path is already in use by another conference.

Is there a way I can rename my path - and keep the same letter combination - without encountering the above problem?

Hi Justin,

You can rename your conference so something else entirely (eg. "conference"), and then change it back to the appropriate lettering.
