Hi Elmer,

Is it possible to create a page when you click on “Workshops” from the “Contributing” menu that lists all the workshops? However, also keep the links to the individual workshop pages from the sub menu as is.

Hi Craig,

You’re talking about the workshops menu item in bold, the item that will open up the submenu? This will not change, because it would make it impossible to navigate to the submenu using a touch device. This is already an issue which needs to be fixed https://yellowgrass.org/issue/conf.researchr.org/150.

A generic approach would be to have one page or multiple pages that show the subconferences and tracks organized by type. I need to think about how to adopt this in the contributing menu.

Hi Elmer,

Yes indeed that is what I am referring to.

Ok fair enough about the touch menus.

The point being is that it is two clicks just to see what the menus are then a click to get to the workshop page, and maybe even another click to the workshop site if it is hosted elsewhere.

Perhaps we need to start adding something to the program so people can easily see the workshops.

HI Elmer,

I created a list of accepted workshops on the “Workshops” contributions page, by creating a “Call for Contributions” called “Accepted Workshops” but this now lists below the “Call For Workshop Proposals.” Can you please allow being able to order the “Call for Contributions”. So I want “Accepted Workshops” to appear first on the page instead of “Call for Workshop Proposals.”

Hi Elmer,

I have since deleted the call for “Accepted Workshops” instead added them into text description of General Data for “Workshops”.

I created a table that includes: workshop name, paper submission deadline, and when the workshop scheduled.

Is it possible to generate this table instead of doing it manually?

Obviously this will require each workshop to have the information added such as paper deadline and when it is scheduled. I am still going through and adding content from the workshops to each workshop page.
