Hello,

I'm trying to setup a redirection from one zone to the same zone, however, to a different page within that zone. I used the "Redirects" feature, and it seems as I have everything configured correctly, but when I visit the page, it doesn't redirect to the other. :/ Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. :)

I have not used the redirect feature nor did I know ocPortal had one.
I may need to do some tests but could you let me know how to set up the redirect or at least how you set it up so I can see what might be wrong.
Thanks.

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.

Please attach a screenshot of your redirects configuration screen, and the page that "didn't redirect" (including the URL field of the browser).

Ami, this redirect functionality is linked to under the 'Structure' section of the Admin Zone.

  • 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.

Oh I remember trying to use that to make zones redirect to pages outside of ocPortal and then finding it does not work that way.
Thanks for letting me know though.

I've done some experimenting, and it seems as if the page you're redirecting from cannot exist. If it does, you'll see the contents of that page and it won't redirect. Anyways, I deleted the existing Comcode page and now it's redirecting perfectly.
