You are trying to perform a member-related action, or comment on something, but you don't have a forum.

How did this happen?

You installed ocPortal with the 'No forums or members' option.

How do I fix it?

We strongly advise to give this option consideration when you install. If you have not done a lot of work on your website yet it is best to reinstall.

Otherwise edit the Installation Options by calling up your '/config_editor.php' script by URL. Change the 'forum_type' from 'none' to 'ocf'. Check all your permissions to make sure they are correct.

Was I helpful?
  • 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 Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • 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 Composr 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.
