Moving forward with Composr

ocPortal has been relaunched as Composr CMS, which is now in beta. ocPortal 9 will be superseded by Composr 10.

Head over to compo.sr for our new site, and to our migration roadmap. Existing ocPortal member accounts have been mirrored.

We've just opened up community documentation on ocportal.com which is powered by CEDI. We hope this will allow users to help each other in a more central/structured way and serve as an additional resource alongside the regular ocPortal tutorials. For example, now you can:
  • add your own tutorials
  • add in details that we haven't covered

Even though we're really proud of our own documentation, it is of course something that is limited to how quickly we can update things inside our team. Now that the documentation is crowdsourced, it will be able to move forward as fast as users can create.

To get started, visit ocPortal CEDI.

If you see a useful tip posted on the forum (e.g. if someone answered a question that was really general, and would be useful for others to see long-term), please add it to CEDI too if it's not already covered by CEDI or a tutorial.

I think that this can prove very valuable as the ultimate repository of additional ocPortal documentation and tutorials.

I've just added my first contribution, but I guess it must first be vetted first before it appears. (good idea! ;) )

Well-settled

Chris,

Can you make available a CEDI Tree view for the community docs so that it's easier to browse?

Thanks

It is on the tracker to do so, but at the moment we have too many urgent things to work on. A major site update will come, at some uncertain point in the future.

  • 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.
