Fan in action

Looking to operate a business directory for my area, but really like the layout, functionality and ease of use of OC Portal… Is there an addon or a way to configure OC Portal to have a directory function as well.

Also is there any other addons to bill those companies in the directory for multiple levels of listings (Classified, standard and premium)?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

The 'catalogues' feature can be used for directories.
The eCommerce functionality can be used for billing.
There is currently no support for multiple levels of listing, or tieing billing to directory listings, but this could be programmed in by someone with ocPortal development experience.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

And how much would that cost?

I've built a Directory using the Catalogue feature and there appears to be no limit to what you can insert in each table.  But it is probably advisable to scribble out your idea on a piece of paper first . . .!

Take a look at Anglo-Indian Portal - Welcome to Anglo-Indian Portal and click on "A-I Directory" to see what I mean. You could probably use the picture function to display company logos.

Always willing to trade ideas.

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

How did you create a new catagory? When I use 'create new catagory' it just gives me a list of existing ones to 'work within', which wasn't what I meant by "new"..?
