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 ocPortal 9 is superseded by Composr 10.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.

ocPortal 5.0.3 released

ocPortal 5.0.3 released Version 5.0.3 has now been released. This version is a patch release that introduces a number of bug fixes since the last release. Upgrading is strongly advised due to a number of fixes to problems inadvertently created in the large prior 5.0.2 update.

To upgrade follow the steps in your website's http://mybaseurl/upgrader.php script. You will need to copy the URL of the attached TAR file (created via the form below) during step 3.

Your upgrade to version 5.0.3

You can generate an upgrader from any version of ocPortal to any other version. If you access this upgrade post via the version information box on your Admin Zone front page then we'll automatically know what version you're running.
If you'd prefer though you can enter in your version number right here:

(example above is for upgrading from 4.3.2 beta1)

Fixes have been made to the following issues:
  • New overlay mode to see edit links underneath each template used
  • Allowed addon manager to work better with Firefox's back button
  • Fixed nasty poll bug
  • Fixed cause of lots of opacity problems on IE9, if IE9-renderer enabled via HEADER.tpl change (but this is highly unrecommended as WYSIWYG and the Code Editor do not work on IE9 beta)
  • Fixed frame height balancing on IE9
  • Fixed frame scroll-wheel detection on IE9 (happened even if IE8 renderer on, as per default)
  • Fixed IOTD scrollbars on IE8

  • Fixed MySQL 4.1 support
  • Fixed stack trace in upgrader for people who have saved FTP details in ocPortal's abstract-file-manager but didn't need them at all (competing logic conflict)
  • Fixed chat room on IE9 (happened even if IE8 renderer on, as per default)
  • Fixed chat room if running on SSL
  • Fixed question dialogues on IE8, if popup blocking on (nasty bug)
  • Fixed nasty problem with missing delete fields on forms (this was fixed already in a re-uploaded 5.0.2)
  • Fixed ignored thumbnailing option when adding a zip/tar attachment
  • Fixed Firefox display issue on IM conversations
  • Fixed Comcode 'font' tag adding white-space to HTML
  • Fixed stack trace if Comcode XML is used with non-supported character sets
  • Fixed PHP4 support, broken previously due to a problem in the database layer
  • Fixed boolean search, broken due to a change in 5.0.2
  • Fixed possible timing error that could lead to problems with IM's
  • Fixed reusing an attachment position after previewing
  • Updated credits in license file
  • Fixed nasty bug in main_comcode_children block created in 5.0.2
  • Fixed a scrollbar problem in latest Google Chrome
  • Fixed bug if a user with an active session is deleted, if that user then comes back they could see errors in some circumstances
  • Fixed possible bug in member box function
  • Fixed nasty bug when saving categories with third party forum drivers
  • Fixed attachment problems on phpBB3 import
  • Fixed bug with cacheing Tempcode symbols that should not be cached (created in 5.0.2)
