Silly Question #4

Greetings,

Ok this is mainly a question out of curiosity… I doubt this is possible… but if it is that would so rock and I would have a big use for it.

I understand that ocPortal boost outstanding multi-site capabitlites and can share a single forum. I also understand (and love!) that I can create zones to act like sites. You see I have a total of 3 sites, my main one is the one I am planing to base on ocPortal. Now the other ones are much smaller and more forum based than anything with simply info pages built around a forum.

So I am wondering, since I can build zones and design the as sites basically… could I also take some of the OCF and bake a forum straight onto these zones that would only be accessed through these zones?

Don't laugh too hard lol. And I admit that I doubt this is possible and this is primarily a curousity of mine.. But my curousity must be solved! So thanks in advance for any answers on this.

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.

Ok.. hold on.. so with these little  downloads I can create forums that appear only on specific pages? Simply amazing!

Yes, with the right fiddling (it's quite complex the settings involved).

I didn't check the date of the topic, it is likely the change already exists in the version you're using.

Hi,

Yeah I played with it. It's a neat idea and an awesome ability.

However after viewing my sites I decided that it wasn't the best option for me. My sites vary and need different things for each site, so really having a shared member database wouldn't be as good as an idea as I thought it would be. So instead I went with different ocPortal installations.

Cool thats how I have my 3 sites. :)

Good job and good luck.

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.
