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 ocPortal 9 will be superseded by Composr 10.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 compo.sr for our new site, and to our migration roadmap. Existing ocPortal member accounts have been mirrored.


Support Credits with Mantis Integration

This addon is a rewrite of ocPortal.coms Support Credits addon to make it more portable.

It allows one to integrate Mantis bug tracking system into their ocPortal website. It could be used as a support system or help desk in combination with ocPortals ticket system.

This addon will install ALL the Mantis tables for you and you no longer need to do a seperate Mantis install.
All textual content has been put into the cutomers.ini language file and can be edited there. (with exception of licence text)

After installing this addon you can change values for number of minutes each priority level credit earns as well as the value (in sites currency)  each credit costs.  This is under site configuration "Features" section.

Note that you will also have to change some values manually in tracker/config_inc.php to reflect your rates and things in there.

Another thing to be aware of: This was converted to still work as if it were on ocPortal.com so some of the various linked articles or pages may need building (or reference to them removed) on your site. In the "tracker" folder files, these can all be changed from within the config_inc.php file. For other files (ocPortal side of things) most of these can be changed in the language file where needed but in somecases you may need to search the block in use though this should be rare.

Other than the config_inc.php file under tracker this is pretty much an install and go now.

Other than converting some tiny improvements were added. Hope you enjoy.

@Todo
- Convert main_mantis_tracker.php block file to use custom template instead of standard box curved.
- Convert licence text to replace hard coded ocPortal or ocProducts references to make less work after install.
- Perhaps add routines to tracker files to help eliminate any config_inc.php file changes from being necessary after install.
This todo list is only for reference and does not mean I intend to do it some day. I have more important things on the plate right now.
