Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Another URL problem

We're running OCS 2.3.3. In the admin settings, we've set the conference redirect to the only conference we're hosting in this instance. The base_url for the instance is:


...which redirects to:

http://conferences.library.gatech.edu/a ... sip/ATLC11

Everything seems to be working fine; except that when a user clicks on "Subscribe" under the Notifications section, he or she receives an email to confirm at:

http://conferences.library.gatech.edu/a ... bscription

This URL is 404. I noticed that the confirmation URL doesn't include the "ATLC11", and so I tried adding it manually:

http://conferences.library.gatech.edu/a ... beMailList

This url does, indeed, go to the Notification Mailing List page; but generates an error:

"There was an error confirming your subscription."

We've had a few problems with generated urls in the past (in OJS, not OCS); but this doesn't seem to be the same thing. Any advice?

Thanks, James. It looks like Alec has identified this as a duplicate, and there is already a patch. I've installed the patch, and the subscription function is working perfectly.
