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 ocPortal 9 is superseded by Composr 10.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.


This addon adds two new features to your shout box. Shake makes all the current visitors to your website's browser screen shake. The second makes any new messages within the shout box appear like an apparition and fly towards the current users of the site.

After installing this addon your shout box will essentially be treated as an embedded copy of the chat room linked to it. Enter/leave room messages will be saved into the room when a member goes somewhere it is shown. For that reason you may want to associate it to a chat room that isn't used independently to avoid that room being cluttered with these messages (the messages don't show in the shout box itself, as they are filtered out there). Alternatively you can blank out the language strings that provide the enter/leave room messages - ocPortal will recognise this and turn the feature off.
