Howdie, Been playing with ocportal the last 24 hours or so. Rainy weather, why not build a website. Mostly a hobby for me but who knows, maybe someday I'll make one for money. I've always had some kind of site of my own starting when html was about all there was. I jumped on the wysiwyg bandwagon pretty quick with dreamweaver :$ so I'm definitely not a coder but I know enough to not screw things up or if I do I can fix it. I tried to get into it one time but I just don't have the right type of memory for code.
Dreamweaver became usless to me for building once the php/CMS;s came out though I still use it as an ftp client. Started with wordpress, tried out joomla and drupal and now ocportal. Found it in the simplescripts section of my cpanel.

I like it.

What I'm working on right now is a site for myself (although I hope others get use out of it)which will have quite a few purposes so ocportal is going to work out nicely. Otherwise I'd have to do subdirectories with seperate sites. The biggest thing it will be is for me to record research. Getting ready to buy property, build a house, huge garden, animals etc. Doing everything myself so lots of research and I need a place to keep it all organised and accessible. That memory thing again. And I never have figured out how to use access.

Well I've had tons of questions but managed to figure most everything out as is preferred. ;)

I do have one question that I can think of. I chose a dark background and noticed the printer friendly version still has a dark background which is not printer friendly. Any way to change that aside from changing theme to light background? Oh, and how do I turn the print friendly feature back on? I had it on with the first/test installation but must have overlooked it in the set up wizard on the final install.

Nevermind, just added a block back in (side printer friendly) with underscores between words

That gives me printer friendly button and I switched theme to white background for now. Guess I'll do different theme and keep features low (comments etc) for places might be printed from.


Thanks

Welcome John glad to see you found ocPortal as a vehilcle for your needs. I wish I could help you with the question on "Printer Friendly" but I have not really played much with that feature yet but I agree a dark background would not make for printer friendly i don't think. There is probably a simple solution for it and hopefully someone who has experienced this will pipe up soon.
