I would like to put a frame with BigBlueButton in the 'collaboration zone' but I can't seem to figure out how.  I tried editing the page directly, but one way gives me a markup error and the other methods do nothing.  Do I need to create this in a new module/page/block?  What am I doing wrong?

I should add that not only am I new to ocPortal, but to CMS's as a whole.  I have always just made my pages in static HTML, but now I need to produce a website for a mmpog with all the spiffy tools and content management a good CMS provides.  I've installed and played with about 20 different CMSs (locally) and have settled on ocP.  This is the only thing that has really given me any problems.

PS…I know frames are a really, really bad idea.  But what I want to do will just put a shared desktop for developers to use (no in-frame navigation) so the pros outweigh the cons in this particular case (imo).  Obviously, I am open to any other suggestions that would accomplish the same thing.

Trying turning off the WYSIWYG editor and using the Comcode 'html' tag.

  • 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.

Ok…from the manual:

"Toward the top-left of the editor is a button to toggle HTML source view in the editor."

Here is what I see:


What button?  The only buttons I see are to insert HTML (which generates the semihtml tag).

And thanks for the quick response.  Sorry to be a bother.

Ah ok, you're on Google Chrome which doesn't support the WYSIWYG editor on the current version (does on the beta). So the WYSIWYG editor is already off. Semihtml should do fine.
