Creating a Conference

You create a conference from the Conference Manager, which is accessible from the Allaire Forums Administrator page. When you select Create New from the Conference Manager, a wizard guides you through the individual settings pages to create the conference.

To create a conference:

  1. Open the Conference Manager and click the Create New button. In the page that appears, you define a number of basic conference details.
  2. Enter a conference name. Do not include any spaces in the conference name.
  3. Enter a conference description. The description appears in the list of conferences in the main Conference Manager page.
  4. Specify an Exit URL. This is the URL where you want users to land once they leave a conference.
  5. Click Finish. Your new conference now appears in the list of defined conferences in the Conference Manager main page.

Once you've defined a conference, you can populate it immediately with a new forum.

To add a new forum to a conference:

  1. Open the Conference Manager, Basic Info page.
  2. Enter the name of the forum you want to add to the conference in the text entry box next to the Add New Forum button.
  3. Click the Add New Forum button. Your forum is immediately added to the current conference.

To reorder the forums in a conference:

  1. Open the Conference Manager, Basic Info page.
  2. Select the forum you want to move in the Selected Forums list box.
  3. Click the up or down buttons to reorder the selected forum.

Forums appear in a conference in the order displayed in the Selected Forums list box.
