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 ocPortal 9 will be superseded by Composr 10.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

Some stability improvements

Some stability improvements If you make Tempcode errors when templating or writing Comcode, ocPortal dies with an error saying what's gone wrong. We've recently realised this is a major problem for people beginning to learn to template and don't understand how to easily recover. More importantly though, it's a major problem for when an admin accidentally types Tempcode inside Comcode - you end up having to go into the database to fix it or manually editing URLs to bring you to the edit screen for the content.
Therefore the next minor ocPortal 3 release will include some changes: ocPortal will now recover from Tempcode errors, instead using our "recoverable error display" mechanism to state problems.

As always, if there are problems like this in ocPortal, drop by and tell us and we'll make sure they get fixed quickly :)!
