I like it a lot its the best system out there. But now that I am using it more and buiding a support site for it I am finding problems. One of which is the php mail send file does not work. The only way so far I have found to fix it is to not use the ocPortal forum software and use either IPB or SMF (have not tried the others) which works with out any problems or errors.
I am getting so frustrated I am wanting to cry and just close down my fan site for ocPortal.
I can not even find away to turn off send emails as I do not want it to any way.
I also looked all over the ftp for the send mail php file but could not find it.

I just want to cry cuz I really care about this system.:'(:'(


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.

Hi Ami,

I'm sorry to hear that. I'm pretty sure this isn't a bug in ocPortal but rather some kind of server problem, but I'd be happy to take a look at the problem myself if you'd like to send me FTP details to access the site. The forum software on the server that you've identified as working possibly uses a slightly different method for sending mail that somehow avoids a server problem.


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.

I concur with Ami about the sendmail 'glitch'. I've been whingeing about it for some time now, and cannot understand how to get around it.

Take my advice. I'm not using it!
