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 ocPortal 9 will be superseded by Composr 10.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.


This addon extends the simple yes/no validation system of ocPortal to allows user-defined "workflows". A workflow contains an ordered list of "approval levels", such as 'design' or 'spelling', and each of these has a list of usergroups which have permission to approve it.

New content enters the default workflow (unless another is specified) and notifications are sent to those users with permission to approve the next level. This continues until all of the levels are approved, at which point the content goes live.

Note that this addon only affects galleries at the moment, and it requires the "unvalidated" system to be installed (this comes with ocPortal but may have been uninstalled). Other content types can be added by a programmer as this addon has been implemented in a modular way.
