Well-settled

Just a quick intro

Hi there:
I escaped from the US 10 years ago and am happily living in Nicaragua doing, well, what I want. I have done web sites with Drupal, figured out why you would never want to do one with Joomla, played with others things including Django. I somewhat by accident ran into ocportal and I am impressed.

I am considering using it to upgrade a Drupal site (as it seems easier to get ocportal to do the site than an upgrade to Drupal 7). I have some other ideas as well. In other words, it's cool.

Welcome, Felipe.

I'm sure you have chosen well when 'doing what you want' by choosing to use ocPortal.

Look forward to when you post your site so that we can all steal your ideas … !!

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Welcome aboard, Felipe.

I really studied my options when deciding to set up a new site and ocPortal was the clear winner for me(based in part with past experience with Drupal and Joomla).

The best part is that it continues to improve without all the headaches of some other software.

FIRST take a look at the core functionality of ocPortal and how it handles these areas as, unlike WP, you shouldn't NEED to go hunting for add-ons.

For instance, 'spam' stops being a nuisance without any blaring horns and statistical data telling you that the add-on is apparently doing its job. In ocPortal it just works! And, if you choose to be notified, it will drop you an email telling you so. If the culprits persist, they get banned from your site.

What more could you wish for?

Not sure what additional caching needs you'd need as ocPortal already offers caching on several levels. Perhaps, you are commenting on the performance but that might well come down to having adequate hosting.

I can see the need for improvement in terms of spamming. There is a relatively inexpensive entry in the tracker to address just this:

In respect of 'spamming', my comment was meant to highlight the fact that it isn't necessary to hunt for add-ons like 'Akismet' and 'Spam Free Wordpress', both of which are good, but can also cause issues by filtering REAL comments by REAL people. False-positives are reported in their forums on a regular basis. Their option to 'strip HTML' is something I think ocPortal does as a matter of course. But I am willing to be corrected on that!

I am not a great fan of 'white lists' and 'black lists'. They serve a purpose, but the reality is that if your IP gets blacklisted in error it is almost impossible to have it removed. I KNOW this, as ALL 'dot-pt' domains and IP's have been blacklisted by AT&T due to a flurry of spam from a Portuguese IP several years ago, and no amount of correspondence with them has been able to lift that ban. 'Sledge hammer to crack a nut' springs to mind.

I cannot say I am spam-free using ocPortal, but what I CAN say is that the spam never sees the light of day as it needs to be validated. Spammers that hit my site and post 'links' are automatically rejected as a 'hacking attempt', and if they persist they get banned, also automatically, and I am informed.

I am satisfied with the level of 'protection' I currently receive, and where I have been forced to impose a 'country' ban (Nigeria is one), it only affects MY site, and an email from a 'genuine' user will invariably lift the ban.
