I thought I would bring up this issue here first and if you like I will add to tracker but you may have a reason for not already asking for it I don't know?

Anyway I think the installer (ocPortal) should ask for the admin users email during installation so their profile is set with it?
I noticed this issue because of the Support Credits Add-on I am working on. In Mantis when you first visit it tries to add your account based on your ocPortal account and when you try to add an issue (or maybe it was attach file or note or something I can't remember what now ) it fails because the user has no email address attached to the account. (no biggie I manually add my email now right after install but I just figure that it is odd it wasn't asked for in the first place)

Shall I add to tracker or too trivial or another reason you left it out?

Good point.

There are other things the user should do relating to their profile. I thought about this, and I think it is best they are advised to go check their profile in general. I'm changing the message at the end of the setup wizard:
Congratulations, the Setup Wizard has now completed! You may now continue to work on your website.

You may wish to run through the Add-New-Page wizard a few times now, and then add some dynamic content such as downloads. Also head over to your profile at some point to configure your e-mail address, choose what notifications you wish to receive, and to personalise your account.

You'll find these tasks, and some more suggestions, on the checklist on the Admin Zone Status page.

And I'm adding a staff checklist hook that puts up a task if there are no admin accounts with an email address.

  • 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.
