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 ocPortal 9 will be superseded by Composr 10.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.


I seem to be stuck here, not sure what to do next.

Soccerdad gave me hosting for the theme site which I am greatfull for .
I have an issue though and not sure what to do next. He did not give me enough domain pointers so can not have all 3 domains pointing to the same site. Instead it was set up where all 3 domains are separate sites.

I kind of thought about maybe using one of them as a test site maybe the oc4themes.net as a test site and then the other 2 for the actual theme site.

Another idea is to set up 3 sites. One for ocportal and smf themes, one for ocportal and aef themes, and one for ocportal and mybb themes.

Another idea which I think is bad for SEO is using a redirect for 2 of the domain to point to the one with all the content.

So I am not sure what to do at this point.

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.

Ami,

Might be a good time to dig into the Zones…

I am not aware that zones can be used as domains.
How ever you may have given me another idea.

I could have 3 separate installs of ocportal that use the same forum.

I seem to be stuck on which forum to use. I just tried aef and I tried mybb the other day and I like both and I also like smf.
I think I will use aef as it looks very nice and has all the features I need.

I did it by using 3 installs of ocportal.
This will actually work better for me any way.
As of right now download comments can not be split between forums so this will let me split them.

So I can have the .net install be for AEF and have the .org install be for mybb and have the .come be for smf and ipb. And then have forums for aef themes, smf themes, ipb themes, mybb themes and ocportal themes.

Although I think I am going to need 2 more installs so I have the right about of comment forums. :)

Ami,

Actually I was thinking that instead of having 3 separate domains you could have one main site and have each site or site function in it's own Zone with it's own Theme.

You could also probably have your domains pointed to each Zone so that you are still using all three domains but they all go to different Zones on the same site.

As to Forums, I like OCF just fine, you know that it is going to integrate just fine without any themeing problems or compatibility issues. It has all the major features that I need from a forum as well as a couple that other forums don't such as subscription based area's.

IPB has subscription based areas.

Any way I do not actually need 3 or 5 sites for each domain. I just like having more then one domain for the same site.

I really was hopping to use domain pointers but soccer dad only gave me one so I would need one more. But thats why I am trying to figure out what to do with the way its set up.

The zone idea you have would probably only work if I was using cpanel - but if I was using cpanel I could just use addon domains and have them point to the same folder on the server instead of domain pointers.

Any way I did set it up as 3 installs. Only issue I see with doing it that way is I can not have it show the total stats for all the downloads, and the popular downloads block, random downloads block. but it will allow me to split the comments into different forums which I need.

Any way thanks.

Oh and one of the reasons I do not use ocf is in the online list It lacks telling you where the person is.

Another reason is it has no gender thingy images in the profile or mini profile (Profile in the posts screen).

Another reason no arcade although I might not need that for the theme site (I do not think aef has that either but not real sure).

Another reason is the emails sent out about replies to your posts/ threads does not have the name of the thread in the subject of the email.

I was thinking and if I can get succerdad to give me one more domain pointer I may do the zone idea.

Got a question though. Does the zone creater allow you to have a different downloads comment section. I mean I want the zone for ocpotal themes to go the the ocportal theme discussion forum and the smf themes to go to the smf themes descussion forum.

If zones allows me to do that with the donwloads that would be awesome.
