Moving forward with Composr

ocPortal has been relaunched as Composr CMS, which is now in beta. ocPortal 9 will be superseded by Composr 10.

Head over to for our new site, and to our migration roadmap. Existing ocPortal member accounts have been mirrored.

I'm starting to REALLY like ocPortal!

New here, Hello y'all!

I have spent about 2 weeks trying different CMS on my local machine, (Ubuntu 9.x), found ocPortal and so far I'm pretty sure this is what I will be using on my live site soon.

I began coding my website by hand many years ago. A buddy of mine set up a site using e107, so I started looking at a cms for my site and found FlexCMS, I liked it and used it. After about a year of using that I am finding myself too limited, and it no longer meets my needs, which is how I wound up here. :P

I have pretty much given up trying to theme any new cms to exactly what I have currently, but, I would like to have something similar in feel and look, while keeping the advantages of the plethora of options for an advanced CMS such as this excellent one, ocPortal!

I'm posting here, with the hope that someone would be kind enough to glance around my current site:

and perhaps give some consideration to posting some comments/suggestions as to what I might do in order to theme ocPortal to a similar look.

I am weak in css, but I understand html well, I have done some coding in C, php makes sense to me. (although C++ gives me a headacheO_o)

Again, I want to say that regardless, i'm fairly certain this is going to be my choice of CMS for the forseeable future, thank you to the staff and management for creating a wonderful application!

Enjoy what ya can,
Endure what ya have to,
Hope the rest don't kill ya!

Rustic-looking site

I assume you are into gaming and such, considering the style of your site. Did you do this site yourself? Not bad.

One thing I noticed that you have a shopping cart of some kind on your site. I don't know if you can integrate a shopping cart into coPortal unless you know programming in php pretty well.

I asked about this and they told me that there is no build-in shopping cart that you can just configure without having to create some kind of bridge to a pre-packaged shopping cart like say maybe osCommerce or Zen Cart or CubeCart… something like that – unless you want to take the time to build one yourself. But then why re-create the wheel when you can get one for free?

Do you plan on trying to have a shopping cart with ocPortal?
