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 ocPortal 9 is superseded by Composr 10.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.

Need a website? Tired of primitive systems that don't meet your requirements? Want to engage your target audience on multiple levels? ocPortal is the versatile (and free) Content Management System (“CMS”) for next generation websites.

Since 2004 we've enabled designers to realise their visions without a team of programmers. Never before could you achieve so much · so quickly · to such high standard

Similarly, we've enabled programmers to achieve more faster, and we've helped businesses and government to do more for less investment.

Not only does ocPortal's CMS have all the features you'd expect: for instance photo galleries, news, events and social networking, but it does so whilst meeting the highest accessibility and professional standards. It is also smart enough to go beyond page management, to automatically handle search engine optimisation, and provide aggressive hack attack prevention.

Why is ocPortal different?

ocPortal is the only open source CMS you'll find that fully integrates so many features in such a cohesive and professional way. While not tied down to a predefined vision (as you'll see).

Many of the features you would expect from dynamic websites come included as standard with ocPortal, as opposed to cobbling together third party additions (as many other CMSs do). This means everything works correctly out of the box.

We also have some amazing integrated design tools and unbeaten design flexibilty.

Video tutorial

In the video we take content from other websites without checking copyright: obviously for a real website you need to be more careful about this. You'll see we use Photoshop on Mac, but this could have been done on free Windows software such as just as well.
