Anyways, For those that weren't here when I was more active on here and such, Hi! I had started using this lovely software back in the ocPortal 6 days, and stayed with it (largely) through its many upgrades and its rebranding. I had however left it for drupal when I wanted to do something a little more that at the time Composr wasn't able to do.
I missed this little piece of software… So I came looking at it again, and wouldn't you know it, it could do what I wanted in the first place! So needless to say over the last month or so I been hard at work at rebuilding my drupal site in Composr, and I got 99% feature match out of it without tons of silly modules and hacks. Yay! I'm very impressed. There was only one thing I wanted to do that I couldn't make work right, but that's ok, it wasn't super important to me anyhow.
So, I know you are all just dying to see what I've done!
That's the front page, showcasing some things such as forum as front page and a proper shoutbox using the shoutbox modules, all which I've writen tutorials for here back in the day. Those tutorials sure were useful since I forgot how to do some of it lol….
I just had to showcase the very thing that I was after! The thing that let me come back! Embeded catalgues in the wiki+ page! (Still liked the name CEDI better ;) ). And not just embeded, but embeded with keywords so that only the parts I want to display display where I want them (ain't English fun?).
Anyways, my system is purged from that other mess and I am happily running Composr once again :D.
Like ocPortal? Want to thank Chris and gang somehow? Then help out in the chat room! It really needs your help! Just open it in a tab everytime you open your web browser, and when you hear a "ding", check it out!

- If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
- If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
- If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
- If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
I'll share my Compsr site... Witches.Chat
Check out the css editing I did with a Composr chat room (it's in a different font, but you'll get the basic idea of how I moved things around to remove white space) see Theban Chat
I can't wait until v11 of Composr, as it will take us closer to mobile compatibility and solve some display issues with fluid display widths (galleries, etc) and (global.css and others) will be sort of normalized)
When v11 comes out, I'll create and submit a few serious themes and mini-modules for free.
