I mean adding that to the forums ocportal works with?

The reason I ask is there is a poll on another site that i belong to where they seeing which forum was liked better.
Right now vbulitin is with smf in close second.
mybb and ipb where not on the list but were added as many people wanted them add and so far mybb and ipb are ahead of phpbb.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

Hi,

It's quite possible that we might. It looks like a strong board with a lot of users. We'd be more likely to implement it if there was some interest - I don't know anything about their community, do you think they are likely to be receptive to having a CMS available to them?
We have to be careful limiting what we choose to support, as forum drivers need updating when new versions come out which adds up. So we need to make sure that it would be well received.

  • 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.

ah good point I will do some asking around for you.

You got me thinking with your comment about forum drivers.
xmb has changed developers so many times I wonder if it still works with ocportal or any one uses the 2 together.


I think as of right now or from the sites I have seen is ipb and smf are the 2 main forums being used with ocportal.

We actually dropped XMB support, because nobody was using it, and XMB popularity was waning. To be fair though, possibly no one used it because we didn't promote it very well in the XMB community.

Just my uneducated (other than OCF and SMF, I really don't use other forums, so I'm sure there are a lot of reasons/features that I'm unaware of) $0.02 worth:

Would it be worth simply keeping the "top 5" or so integration engines current, then focusing on migration tools for the others as well as extending the functionality of OCF (via addons?) to encompass the features in the other forum packages that users are looking for?

ah could be, I just noticed you still had it on the list on the main page.

They have had a lot of problems though.
I remember when ientry bought them out and started doing the development but according to what I read they were running it into the ground and making it go back words in development.  so after some tiem some of the older developers took back over but ientry still supples the funding.

Any way I look will into mybb for you.

you know thats a good idea.

Although the main reason I use ipb is do to the 3 rpg systems and arcade.  SMF does have its own arcade though but I do not think it has as many rpg systems.

Ami, it sounds like you've hit on a great addon project for the members here once OCP4 is released! I think I'd enjoy working on something like this (arcade integration with OCP/OCF). Also, Chris may let us take his RPG for OCP and bring it up to date? ;-)

Of course :). We keep ocWorld in our source code tree so it kind of gets kept up to date when we make sweeping changes across our code, but I doubt it still works without some fixes. At some point I intend to release it again in some form.
It's Open Source, so you can do what you like with it.

I think I may have heard you say that before so it might be kind of cool to work on it with some one else.
I am not as Smart as Chris but we can sure try to make some thing.

Me neither, not even close, however, I can "embrace and extend" and I think if we start working together (the OCP community) with Chris as a sounding board/reference point, we'll really be able to start creating some kewl additions to an already way kewl web dev platform.
