ocPortal Tutorial: Dos and Do-nots of an (ocPortal) website

Written by Chris Graham, ocProducts
This tutorial will detail a few of the do and do-nots of running a website powered by ocPortal.


Do

  • Use a clear colour scheme that is easy on the eyes
  • Make it easy to navigate your site: people should not need to think to find where to go, it should be obvious
  • Provide good, fresh, and new content on your site; or if you are making an aggregation site, content that is organised in a unique way

Do not

  • Make a website that is too busy, as it will be slow and will distract from your site message
  • Use every ocPortal feature on your site just because they exist
  • Plagiarise content: if you use other peoples content, credit them
