My feed back

 Saw this link in Chris's siggy, even though Chris has been very helpful as always I just thought I would give some feed back any way.

As you know I am a huge fan of ocPortal, mainly do to the quality of the product as well as the kindness and helpfullness of the staff.

I may not use the recommend feature that is on this site but I do talk about ocportal when ever I see an opertinity. yes I know at one time I went to far and I was called a ocportal spammer as I had lost my support position on a IPB support site do to talking about ocPortal to much. How ever do to that I have thought of better ways of mentioning it that will not be considered spamming.

A few things I do now is when some one asks about a portal or cms I bring up ocPortal, I also post all news from here on my site.

What I am hopping to do when I get done with my php classes and hopefully get zend certified like bfarber is at IPB. That way I can come out with mods / add ons such as an updatted importer which actually is my first project for the class I am in.

Its not open source to them. I tried submitting it to them and was told its not open source so they will not include it.

Your site seems to be having intermittent connectivity issues

For the last two days, your site will either time out, or load (but loading takes at least 5-15 minutes).

I ran a few trace routes from network-tools.com and found that you may want to look into why your site fails just before the last hop. I'm trying to pitch OC Portal as a platform for my department and it doesn't look good if the site is unavailable. :-/

I've tried from 3 different internet connections (work, home and EVDO/AirCard).. your site is the only one that has trouble.

Yes. We've had some server problems in the last few days, but they should be fixed now. :) Thanks for your concern.

A few things I just want to mention.

Avatar
I still love ocPortal that has not changes at all.
Actually its getting easier. I am still taking classes and still making skins.
Now what I want to say is problems I have has that I would love to see fixed. most you know about but want to add to it.
The comments using user names instead of display names. This still has me a bit confused about ocPortal as smf and yabb have had this for far longer then ocportal has been around in fact smf has had it for its whole existence, basically its never not had it.
Yes IPB only just added it for security reasons and I do like their reasoning behind it not that ocPortal is insecure.
Any way I found a way around it for me. I created a comment bot and make the starter comment for all images, catagories and any thing else that needs comments and then hide the box for comments and only have the link to the comments thread.

Hi, I'd like to discuss hosting a mirror of OCPortal.com in the US...

Avatar
I'd like to discuss an arrangement to host a mirror of the OCPortal site in the US, if it would help with the current site availability issues. I believe you have an excellent platform that is being overlooked by the majority of blog and forum users, and unfortunately, if the site is not available, it will continue to be overlooked.
If it would help overcome your short term difficulties, I am willing to offer the use of a quality managed server with a high bandwidth and space quota in return for a small, fixed amount of consultation over time.
If this offer interests you, please contact me by means other than OCPortal.com for the abovementioned site availability reasons. My email is dainsburg@yahoo.com, my Skype ID is dainsburg, and my Skype number is 413-241-6504.
If you choose to call, I am on Eastern time (EST) in the US.
Regards,
David Ainsburg

One of the things I hear complaints about with your system and IPB is it auto adds the customer profile fields even though they are not used so you have to go though and delete them all, which is tedious.

Another suggestion and I may have mentioned it before but thought I would add it as I hear it from others as well.
Auto go on to next on the creation of the files in the quick install. This is so you do not have to keep clicking next as some expect it to so some things I hear is its not working until I look at what they are doing and find they just need to click next. I think these people who are saying this are just used to IPB's installer.

Any way keep up the good work your system is still better then others. It may not have the best skins and some may say it looks like phpnuke but thats what my site is for and I have all kinds of plans for new skins when ocportal 4 comes out.

Just making a suggestion.
Not sure if I mentioned this before or not if I did sorry if not here goes.
On the ocPortal – helping you make your website page it would be cool if it said where those people were and what they were looking at specially for admins.
Kind of like how ipb has it.

Do you mean like this?



ocPortal already does this for admins. :)

Fatal error

This message is for Chris.

Chris, I am having trouble trying to submit a trouble ticket or start a personal topic with you, so I am going to try this method. I hope you get my message.

I am receiving the following error message: Fatal error: Call to undefined function text_lookup_comcode() in /home/ocp/public_html/uploads/website_specific/ocportal.com/
scripts/version.php on line 50

Can you tell me how to fix this?

Thanks,

Version 4 RC3

Hi,

I have installed a version 4 site for testing. I have noticed a few bugs and wondered if you would like feedback at this stage. If so just let me know how and where to log it.

Please do :). Probably the easiest way is to open a new topic in the "testing" forum, or start a support ticket if you prefer.

To make it easy, drag this link into the links bar in your browser (if you have one). Then just click it to get to the 'add new topic' page.

You can of course rename the link or remove it whenever you wish.

Now hopefully I can get some skins.
Still unsure about that other one based on your new skin. I thought it was going to be easy too.
Its just that one block is not working correctly. Phillip did try and help but still lost.

Any way thanks..

reason for leaving...for now

Avatar
Hi All,

After just discovering ocPortal and having such a good experience today with Chris who helped me get started, I've turned around and put ocPortal down for now, in search of another option.

The reason for this is that I finally noticed ocPortal really seems geared primarily to – i guessed it – o<nline c<ommunities. I didn't initially catch that little fact when I started checking this cms out. But I eventually got the impression that my little personal portfolio site is probably not the ideal use for ocPortal. (Please, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong about that, and maybe I'll come running back!)

I must say, however, that I'm rather anxious now to find a new project to work on (something community-driven) where I can really take advantage of ocPortal! It really whetted my whistle!

Thanks again and I'm glad to have ocPortal in my bookmarks now :)
