Panel - Call

Postby bachinger » Sat Sep 18, 2010 3:04 am


we want to offer the possibility to organize a panel (find contributors, etc.). I think the best way would be a small forum. Is there any possibility to open a forum on OCS? Or does a plugin exist?

Thx for your help,

Hi L.,

There currently isn't that kind of functionality in OCS, and there likely won't be a specific plugin for it in the future -- we shy away from reproducing functionality that is already well-covered in other apps, such as bloggin and forum software. There may be other ways to "integrate" content, though -- for example, you may be able to adapt the OJS RSS Feed Plugin (viewtopic.php?f=28&t=5109) for OCS, and then have it display the RSS feed for a forum you've set up separately. You can also link to the forum from the header, or create a custom block with a link to it; and you may also have luck using the LDAP plugin to coordinate sessions between software applications, provided the forum software you use also supports LDAP.
