Fan in training

I have looked ein FAQ, Googled and much more and I haven´t found a way to insert a javascriptsnippet on the main page in such a form that it actually works after insertion...

I have tried html block, code block and raw code - everything just leaves the raw java code visible on the main page or leaves an empty block

I really can´t see what I´m doing wrong, but then again I´m a novice in ocportals way of working although I´m rather familiar with ordinary html coding.

Can anybody please help me out of my misery?

If memory serves, I think you need to do it as follows:


<script type="text/javascript">
// <![CDATA[

That may work, but I've been under the impression that ocPortal doesn't allow you to run javascript or any type of code for that matter directly from the page since it would allow a serious risk to hacking.

It should work fine if you're an admin. Ensure the WYSIWYG is off as that could interfere with code.

  • 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.
