we have installed the OCS on our server and everything is fine thus far. i have a question regarding the customization of our site.

we really only need three sets of pages.

1..... a login page. we would like this to be the first page users see.
2...... once logged in, the next page we would like users to see is a listing of all tracks and the abstracts/presentations under each track.
3...... when users click on a author/abstract/presentation/etc, they are directed to the detailed abstract and presentation, where users can post comments.

that's all we need. .(we already have a conference web site and registered users. the OCS will simply be a link from that pre-existing site.)

is there a way to set up the site this way so just to have those three levels of pages?

Hi Paul,

You'll need to comment out quite a number of links in the OJS template files, primarily in the sidebar and header templates:
  • templates/common/sidebar.tpl
  • templates/common/header.tpl
OTOH, that should be all that's necessary.
