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.

Adding LeftSidebar

Hi there,

I'm new with OCS and I couldn't find how to add sidebars, specifically the left bar.
I'm using the custom Block Manager Plugin but it always puts new elements in the right bar. How can I create the Left bar?

Another question, How can I add a new top navigation bar? (below the one that is already)

Thanks in advance!

Hi Paula,

Regarding the first question: see Conference Management -> Website Management -> Step 4: Conference Style. You'll be able to move blocks around there.

Regarding the second question: you can add *to* the current navigation bar in Conference Management -> Website Management -> Step 3: Headers and Footers. You can also add an alternate header in HTML there. Otherwise, you will have to edit the template file itself -- try searching the forum for header, template and/or tpl.
