I am having huge trouble with the forum on my ocPower site and I have been trying to fix it for a while now.
For some reason every time I fix it I can not log in and when I unfix it I can log in but the skin is messed up.
I do not have to many members just yet and most of the members are from here. The last member to join was Digigirl and I think she joined while it was messed up.
How would you feel is if I just reinstalled every thing. would you be willing to rejoin?

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.

If you describe:
  • the problem
  • the 'fix'
  • the 'messed up skin'
  • the 'login error'
We may be able to help. I noticed that a forum import error came from your site recently, and I'll be looking into that.


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.

O that was from my other site.
That error was PPY.
I installed the newest version of ocp as well as the newest version of iPB 2.2 and tried to import from the old installation just to test the import tool and it failed.
It should work as its the same software.
I did not want to bug you again so I just gave up and am just going to run the update tool that should do the same thing.


Also the problem is the messed up skin, when that is fixed it creates the log on issue, when it is unfixed I can log in but the skin is once again messed up.
I will have to maybe talk to the forum script makers about it.

Why would you use another forum product which has no embedded code into the other parts of OC. Wouldnt you be better off trying to explain what is wrong with OC foruming and see what can be done to improve it in the first place. I think you are going down a very deep one way hole that is going to be difficult for OC to resolve and cause headaches for you.?? I can understand getting import routines for other forum products but to rip out a perfectly good forum product which has embedded links to a heap of other functions within the application seems very strange to me … Why dont you rip out your car engine out and replace it with a solar panel.. will the car work? well maybe but only if the sun shines and only if you buy another generator etc etc .. I also posted a similar thread in one of your other forum posts (today)   O_o

I tried the OCF and I did not care to much for it.
I like the rest of ocPortal but not the forum.
Besides I like the add ons for IPB.
The add ons I like are the arcade that is able to store scores and you can compete with other members.
The army system which you can create an army and attack another army that another player created.
There is also the inferno rpg that will be installed some time soon.
There are others but I think you get the point.
Besides I have been using IPB far longer then I have been using ocPortal. I found ocPortal when looking for more things to add to my IPB site.

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.

I must admit, I do not really care for the OCF either. I tend to like scripts/software with numerous features, regardless of their function and capability. I am usually able to find a use for every feature a script has. The OCF doesn't really have many features, and there aren't many modifications available.

I do however like the whisper feature though, this was a brilliant idea. I agree with amichan, IPB is probably more preferable to its users as it has available modifications available to 'extend' the experience. :)
