I want to test the importer I was working on so I added the file to the sources/hooks/modules/admin_importers folder (of ocp installer 7.5.1) and then surfed to install.php which first asks me which forum I want to use (ocp's default) but then goes on to ask for site details which should be added via the importer so why am I there? Where can I find the import tool? Do I keep going thru setup to find it or do I find it somewhere else? BTW the Offical guide section covering importers is no help for answering this question either. lol

  • 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.
