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

 Do to the need for IP. converge I will unable to use ocPortal as I found it did not work with it.
The IP.converge allows you to link more then one IP.board and I am going to use it to make a RPG site using my old site' url and have it use the members of the otakuplayground.com site.

Monday I opened a support ticket with IPS to try and find a way to get ocportal to still work and I was told it was not supported as they do not support 3rd party mods or ad ons. So I opened a topic on their support forum as I was requested to do and told them what was going on and they tried to help but they ended up saying that it might be best to drop ocPortal.
I opened another topic on another support site and was basically told the same thing.

By the way the converge changes the username into the users email address.

 

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.

I don't know of any reason why ocPortal wouldn't work with converge, as long as the forum ocPortal was installed with was the one that had the central converge member database.
This said, I've not tried it.
Do you get some kind of error?


Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
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.

 Its complicated and I did not wish to bug you about it as I know your busy and I have bothered you about my issues with ocportal before and I do nto like upsetting or making more work for people.

Basically the main problem is the log in.

With members that registered before the converge was installed they log into ocPortal with their username and password but on the forum they log in using their email and password.

The other issue is when a member makes a comment it shows the email address and not the display name, which was why I did not wish to bother you about it.

Also if a member registers though the converge and tries to log into ocPortal it will not work until they log into the forum after registering on the converge page.

what I was working with support to do what get the 2 boards linked and use the same members but also use the username instead of the email. How ever this caused many issues and could not be done very easy.
