Moving forward with Composr

ocPortal has been relaunched as Composr CMS, which is now in beta. ocPortal 9 will be superseded by Composr 10.

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


Lets get this party started.

Many of you like me want to see ocportal thrive and grow.
I even started my own support site which whill have videos as soon as I can get a good record of an installation. My computer keeps doing funky things while I am trying to install and record it at the same time.
I tried to edit out the errors and that is part of what is taking me so long.
I love ocportal and have tried to use many other system.
One system I used which was horable was subdreamer. This CMS messed up my ipb database, when I told others what damage it did to my ipb database they also had the same problem. A few other problem I have was Every time you made a skin edit and wanted the changes to show up on the forum you had to resink it. O it was a nightmare using it. Not only that it lacks in the capability ocportal has.
One other one I used was etomite. OMG this one is bad, The makers are so paranoid of not making it into a portal that you can not link thier system to any out side pages making it pretty usless in my opinion. (I should mention I got banned from thier site cuz I wanted to know how to make links to pages that were not part of thier system, I was told it was imposible cuz they are not a portal and when I wanted to find out why and a little more info I was banned).
I even used mkportal, Now this one is not to bad but does lack things that ocportal has. Its the only other one that comes close but not close enough to the quality and customizabilty of ocportal.
I did also use pc nuke (Modded version of php nuke) and it was fun to use and had a lot of features but my members did not like that you had to have 2 profiles. 1 for the site and 1 for the forum.
There are a few others I tried but those are the only ones I wish to talk about as the rest did not have a forum system that I liked or a working one.
Any way I am making this cuz I want a thread about ideas to spread ocportal to the world making it number 1 on cms's.


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.

Good idea, let's get on with it !

Clear the community has to grow.
Existing users must participate. We belong to a group and the larger the family, the better for everyone.

Why not try a thing like that ( http://www.frappr.com/ocp ), to see where every one is located? How long would it take our wizard of ozp to include this in here? 5 minutes? 4?
(don't add your names to the map, it's just an example).

Let's all drop all our silly ideas here, and let the staff sort them out.

A program called wink. I am making videos for a lot of the different things you can do.
That one seems a bit fast for me though.

Well done amichan: that is a very nice video. :thumbs:

If you don't mind though, I have some suggestions for improvement:
  • Why not put it on a Comcode page in the ocPortal installation on ocpower.info?
  • I think you've accelerated the video, but even without that, I think you scrolled down and moved around too fast: you're trying to show people how easy it is to install ocPortal, so why not let them read and see everything? On the other hand, going too slowly would defeat the concept of showing how fast it is :P
  • You should probably maximise your browser to prevent the overflowing input boxes, but I'll look into a CSS fix to stop them overflowing in the first place
  • Finally, you might want to put some thought into a narration for the video. I don't know if you'll be up for it, but I think it would add to the video quite considerably

I must say again though, it's a very nice piece of work. :)

Ya all of those I am going to do. this is just my first draft.
Well the over flow is showing no matter what on 800 by 600 even with the brower maximized. So I will look foward to a fix.

I've discussed it with Allen, and we think it would be best included in ocpower.info, rather than the main ocportal.com site. I'm sure you can arrange that with amichan. :)
