DESCRIPTION

Simple Conference is a web application for a lightweight conference website. Its basic functions are:

  • Static page(s) to display conference info.
  • An interface (Create/Read/Update/Display) for participant registration.
  • Admin interface for viewing and sorting additional details of registrants.

The application is based on the Cake PHP framework (version 2.4.5): http://cakephp.org/

CONFIGURATION

Begin by cloning the git repository, e.g:

git clone https://github.com/nilesjohnson/simple-conference.git

If you don't yet have cake available, clone that too:

git clone https://github.com/cakephp/cakephp.git cakephp

Then there are five basic configuration steps necessary to get the app running:

  1. Point to a copy of cakephp library: Put a copy (or symbolic link) of 'cakephp/lib' at 'simple-conference/Lib/cakephp-lib'

    ln -s /path/to/cakephp/lib /path/to/simple-conference/Lib/cakephp-lib

  2. Create a private configuration file by copying the default one:

    cd simple-conference/Config/ cp conflistConfigDefault.php conflistConfigPrivate.php

  3. Set up a database and put the connection information (user, password, etc.) in the private configuration file from step 2.

  4. Update the rest of the settings in the private configuration file from step 2.

  5. Create the necessary database table. This can be done with the following MySQL commands (see db_create_2.php):

     CREATE TABLE registrants (
     id INT UNSIGNED AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
     date DATE,
     edit_key VARCHAR(10),
     first_name VARCHAR(200),
     last_name VARCHAR(200),
     email VARCHAR(200),
     affiliation VARCHAR(200),
     webpage VARCHAR(400),
     request_pub TINYINT(1),
     request_fund TINYINT(1),
     request_a TINYINT(1),
     request_b TINYINT(1),
     request_c TINYINT(1),
     comment TEXT
     );
    

ADMINISTRATION

Site administrators receive a copy of every confirmation email. If this is lost or the edit keys there are invalid for some reason, you can get the edit/delete url for registrant number N as follows: Navigate to registrants/admin/N and use the admin key from your private config file. You can also use registrant-specific edit key there.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
