Adding LeftSidebar

Postby paula » Tue Jun 22, 2010 5:30 pm

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.

OCS it's a great system, but I'm still learning how to configure it.
