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 ocPortal 9 will be superseded by Composr 10.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.


Let's get some content

Let's get some content This one didn't go so well. Reporting this is gonna be kind of hard as you will see from the screenshots. In and effort to get it all, I've uploaded multiple screenshots, when put together show the entire page…

This test was adding news from the Adminzone. Getting to the submission area is fairly straightforward, and the flow to get your news added was intuitive. Adding a category, then an article to that same category also went well. Upon submission is where the problems started. I can't seem to display this news article, nor find it on the site. Since it was submitted by admin, approval was automatic, however, I've missed something somewhere to show this. (this brings up a big issue I have with OCP3: easy block management. More on this in my summary 2morrow).

From here, it went from bad to worse. I decided to try the edit news article feature. Clicking on the Edit button allowed me to select the new article for editing. However, upon selection, everything blew up  :o

Here is the stack trace as best as I can get it with screenshots below:
