Err, sorry to say I will no longer be using ocPortal, as I am having so many issues with it. I'm running ocPortal on my windows server, and I cannot get my mail server setup correctly, in which ocPortal uses email for everything. I tried disabling the validation because when people try to join, they get a email server error, but the feature does not turn it off. I went to Adminzone->Setup->Configuration->Forum Options, and the option to disable validation doesn't work. It still requires members to validate. What good is a site without members? :P

I get language errors when opening the adminzone, which I don't see how..I don't edit any files or anything. Also, I cannot`add downloads to the download section. When it asks me to fill in all the boxes and information, I press proceed, and it does nothing.

I love ocPortal, it's great..the layout is nice, many features, great support btw! But I cannot use it, as I'm having too many problems with it. I do however appreciate those who spent a while working on ocPortal. Thanks to all!

Kind Regards,
Joe

Ya I do not like validating any thing either and many other scripts to not have that.
I saw Chris's post about why he does it but it would be nice to have it all turned off like on ipb.
There is even a quick register mod for ipb.

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.

Joe, if you open a support ticket about these issues, perhaps we can fix any bugs you're encountering in a more direct fashion?

We can't remove the requirement for e-mails to be sent out in this version, so the best thing for you to do to resolve that problem is probably contact your hosts about SMTP details.
