Moving forward with Composr

ocPortal has been relaunched as Composr CMS. ocPortal 9 is superseded by Composr 10.

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


You can view a Demo Site here:  Edge

Edge is a theme for ocPortal inspired by the forthcoming AdobeŽ Edge web motion and interaction design tool that will allow designers to bring animated content to websites, using web standards like HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS3.

The use of HTML5/CSS3 box-shadow techniques to highlight a set of golden steel plates forms the basis of this theme. I have tried once again to demonstrate that it is possible to dramatically transform the look of the off-the-box ocPortal CMS with very minor changes to the glogal.css file and without modification to the templates.

This theme and its header animation should be completely compatible with the latest browsers such as I.E.9, Firefox5, Chrome13, Safari5 and most new browsers supporting HTML5+CSS3 and the png graphic format.

One interesting observation I made is that even the Admin Zone looks smashingly good thru the lenses of this theme. Try it you’ll see what I mean!
