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 ocPortal 9 will be superseded by Composr 10.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.


How would one set up a sandbox environment for testing structure, theme, new zones, etc?

Fan in action

At this point it doesn't matter because I'm creating a new site with no traffic. But assuming I'm successful in developing a community, I'd like to start basic and add features as the community grows. How do you recommend I test those out before deploying to the production site?

Permissions and the Validation setting on content items.
And/or setting up a second site. Themes can be copied across between sites just as files, content is a bit trickier but a lot less time to copy than to create so not really an issue. There is a staging tool for developers, but it is a bit complex.

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 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.
