Moving forward with Composr

ocPortal has been relaunched as Composr CMS. ocPortal 9 is superseded by Composr 10.

Head over to for our new site, and to our migration roadmap. Existing ocPortal member accounts have been mirrored.

Is this 'filter' custom to or a part of ocPortal software?

Both these links started with the exact same URL.

Case 1: Using the 'link' icon in CKeditor:
Various Custom Pages, Including 'Simple SSO'
Result = Link unchanged and works fine

Case 2: Copy / paste only the url into the editor textarea of the editor.
Miscellaneous features and usage - ocPortal
Result = The link text is auto-selected based on the main title of the target page, However the url itself is changed and doesn't work.

I can test myself to answer the question (re: ocP software), and also thought you might want to know about this.

Test with external link:
CKEditor - WYSIWYG Text and HTML Editor for the Web
Result = It's a nice feature for external links, since the complete page title is grabbed for you. Why are your internal links 're-written'?

That is likely due to mod_rewrite using the short url function. It is a cuntion that you can enable in your ocPortal installation if you have a capable webhost that has apache and the sort.

This option can be found in your admin zone in setup > configuration > site option in the advanced box, entitled "Short URL's". It simply rewrites all ocPortal URLS into a simplified format.

Like ocPortal? Want to thank Chris and gang somehow? Then help out in the chat room! It really needs your help! Just open it in a tab everytime you open your web browser, and when you hear a "ding", check it out!

I think you made a Freudian slip at the start of your second sentence there Mythus ;).

The 's/1/13' bit is mod_rewrite, we have a special rule to make CEDI links short.
The auto-fetching of titles is a Comcode feature.
And the exact behaviour reported here is a clear bug, I'm working on it now.

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 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.
