After a lot of time thinking about the direction of the site/domain, I have decided to make some dramtic changes to the way the site looks and operates.
Firstly, I have changed the platform of the site from ocPortal over to WordPress.
This is a change that hasn’t been made likely.
The main reason for the change is, I believe, that whilst ocPortal did what I wanted it to do, WordPress offers exponentially more flexibility from its vast array of plugins and not just from it’s “out-of-the-box” system.
Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, is the issues of compatibility with the software.
I had noticed a few issues which prevented my site from operating as it should, which didn’t occur on previous releases of the software. Subsequently, ocPortal has announced the it’s successor ‘composr’ would be taking of the reins, however, the issue I have still remains within the software.
All-in-all, I believe, that despite the challenges that lay ahead, switching to WordPress is going to be more rewarding long-term.
So for now, please feel free to negotiate the site, and keep coming back for regular updates.
