I have your latest portal installed on a test site and I have to say it looks amazing, great work to everyone here. I also have SMF 1.1rc3 installed in the same database as OCPortal. The only problem is I cannot link in any way to the forum from the portal. The url to the forum is:

www.mysite.com

And the portal is at:

www.mysite.com/portal

I know this is a bit backward but its only a test site. But for some reason every time I change the link on the front page it keeps staying at this:

http://www.mysite/portal/net/index.php?page=81

it won't change to this at all no matter what I do:

www.mysite.com

Keeping in mind that this is on my computer and not on the net but this should not make a difference should it. I have read the tutorial about the integration and all and have followed it. Is there something I' missing.

Are you sure you chose to use SMF when you installed ocPortal? It's in one of the earlier steps of the installer.

My guess is that you should try dumping your caches.

But its weird, as soon as I clicked a link in it, it dissapeared for a while.
I'm not going to speculate on what exactly is going on here, but I'll point out - a whole heck of a lot of ocPortal problems can be fixed just by emptying your caches. You can do this via "Tools" -> "ocPortal Tuneup" in the adminzone, or by going to /force_upgrade.php, or tagging on &keep_nocache=1 at the end of your address bar (if there's a ? in the address bar already). Really - when in doubt, dump your caches. This solves most problems I have. It's now a habit for me to try dumping caches before filing a bug report.

Hello,

To be honest, I doubt the solutions in this topic will work. However, we don't have much to go on at the moment so I'd like to ask you to help clarify the situation for us :).

Please tell us which specific link on the front page you are changing, and how you are changing it. For instance, is this a link within the Comcode page, a link hard coded into the templates, or is it somehow associated with ocPortal's configured link toward the forum?
Does '81' mean anything to you?

These might sound rather strange things to ask, but ocPortal is so vast that sometimes we need detailed information to understand exactly what parts of what subsystems are malfunctioning.

Also please clarify what 'road block' you've reached that is preventing you from editing.

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.

Well I figured out that the whole folder "adminzone" did not get uploaded to the host. Upon retrying I found that my host won't let me upload a folder called "adminzone" So I had to rename it "Adminzone"

The original problem was that I can't get to the admin panel or the cms at all.
