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.

parallel sessions end times

Postby vwzombie » Sat Jun 04, 2011 5:37 pm

We are running parallel sessions which have the same start time but different end times. In the conference schedule the sessions are displayed by start time but the sessions are grouped under one end time rather then under the different end times that have been allocated. Is there any way to display the parallel sessions with the different end times?

Not sure now that I posted this on the correct forum but I have resolved this problem by adding
Code: Select all
{assign var=lastEndTime value=0}

Code: Select all
{if $lastStartTime|date_format:$datetimeFormatShort != $startTime|date_format:$datetimeFormatShort}

Code: Select all
{if $lastStartTime|date_format:$datetimeFormatShort != $startTime|date_format:$datetimeFormatShort || ($showEndTime && $lastEndTime|date_format:$datetimeFormatShort != $item->getEndTime()|date_format:$datetimeFormatShort)}

and adding
Code: Select all
   {if $showEndTime}
      {assign var=lastEndTime value=$item->getEndTime()}

Code: Select all
{assign var=lastStartTime value=$startTime}

in \templates\schedConf\schedules\expanded.tpl
Not sure if this is the best or correct way to do it but it seems to work - if anyone knows different please let me know :)
