I started working on a theme based on this one but got busy with other things and am working on a custom one for a site and when that one is done I will start back up on this one.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

Nope not available to download.
Thats why I started working on one. The Marble background is copy written so my version of it will be a bit different.

OK got you now.
Is the portal easy to integrate with Simple Machines Forum. I have been round all the portals and CMS and have been trying them all. I run an ice hockey forum and was looking for a portal to integrate and also add league pages etc. Getting tired looking and came across ocportal. Would want to change them a bit. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Ocportal works just find with SMF and it can be configured to run the way you want.
If you need any help on getting things set up the way that you want or need the staff around here is very helpful and even I am at times available to help.

getting this The forum driver can not find the forum software tables under the given database settings.
Are you sure you have the forum installed and gave the details correctly?

Oh I was not aware you were running the smf 2 beta. I think the rc for that came out not that long ago.
As far as I know many changes were done in smf 2 that make ocportal not work with it but Chris has not updated ocportal do to wanting to wait until at least RC came out just in case. Plus he has been busy.

He is going to update ocportal to work with smf 2 although when I am not sure.

nope it can be installed in a different database. When you go to install it, you will need to check the box at the bottom that says some thing about running more then one install. Its at the very beginning when you choose which forum software you are going to be using.
Having that checked allows you to run ocportal on a different database then the forum. Not having it checked it will use the same database.

Does the forum not appear inside the portal. or is it just a link. I thought it might have been wrapped in or something.

Go to the Fixed Width Tutorial to get an idea of how this display is achieved.

No it is not available as yet.

I have used the information from the tutorial to achieve a fixed width display on my site, but I am still using version 3.2.10, so any info I provide would probaly be misleading if you are using the version 4.x.x series.

Good luck, and have fun!

 :thumbs:

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
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 ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • 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 ocPortal 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.
