I'm pleased to announce we've just put up an epic mega-tutorial.

It weights in at 9 pages of text, 8 videos, and 1 annotated PDF.

It goes in precise bullet-point detail through the whole process of taking a "clean-room design" (something designed with no up-front ocPortal knowledge, that has already been built in XHTML/CSS) and turning it into an ocPortal theme.

I hope it's useful to you all :).

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 Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • 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 Composr 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.
