Howdy folks,

I'm a new fan of ocportal.

The app seems to offer a lot of what i look for - except the "looks" itself.

Are there really no themes for this baby? Different designs?

At least not in the "official" download section …

As long as Wordpress looks so much better, i'm afraid all the features in the world won't help ocportal to make it big …

Many folks here have and are designing their own themes. That's how easy it is.

Also, you can use the THEME WIZARD in your ocPortal yourself to get certain colors you want for a start.

Check out the tutorials as well in this category. BIG HELP there on how to theme ocPortal so it doesn't look like the generic ocPortal installations.

To go with friendly's reply…

If you see a theme you like, perhaps send the member a personal topic asking for a copy of that theme. Not everyone may share, but you might get positive results also.

Greetings,

Aye, there is a shortage of ready made themes. I added a theme some time ago here (Classic Legends) and a while ago I had added some themes for an older version.

The thing is, it is so easy to make your own custom theme, there there hasn't been a huge demand for premade themes. The theme wizard is just awesome for a quick start theme, and then you have all the tools in your admin zone to change it, piece by piece to what you desire.

I would agree with friendly's suggestion. I am sure that if you found a site using a theme you like and you ask nicely, they would be more than glad to share. Heck I know I would be… I'd be flattered lol.

Like ocPortal? Want to thank Chris and gang somehow? Then help out in the chat room! It really needs your help! Just open it in a tab everytime you open your web browser, and when you hear a "ding", check it out!
