I was wondering what everyone here considered ocPortal's benefits

From my own point of view one of the biggest benefits is the huge amount of included features and customisability

So what do you think its biggest benefits are? I'd like to see the different points of view

Without making this into too long a post by stating ALL the benefits, I'll try and keep it as short as your post title suggests (not the BIGGETS bit):
  • The support from the team: I know we see Chris spreading himself thinly across the spectrum of the forums, but I guess you guys in the background need to take some (actually, a lot) of the credit, too!
  • Security: I allow myself a chuckle every day when I am notified that another Chinese script-kiddie (or several) has/have been automatically banned for trying out some dastardly deed or the other.

There's a lot more that appeals to me, but I'll leave a few areas for the others to mention …

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

For me I can say this:

1. The flexibility
2. The security
3. The support from the team and community.

But there is many more  :thumbs:

Not to repeat what was already stated and upon which I agree wholeheartedly, I will add that one of its greatest benefit is that it has One Source, unlike most other cms's relying on multiple add-ons produced by  a host of independent code meddlers.  

This one source, you guys , is what keep its dynamic evolution consistent . 'One Source' eliminates support confusions and solutions get to the users faster and reliably.

Fan in action

My quick point of view:

Users' benefits:

- it's free
- plenty of features
- features are completed
- no compatiblity and dependency hell
- security
- theme wizard
- smooth and easy update process
- instant bugs fixing

Developers' benefits:

- clean code
- files and code overriding without changing the original code
- modern MVC architecture
