Bug#625865: ITP: ocportal -- ocPortal is a Content Management System for building and maintaining a dynamic website
 
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Chris Warburton <chriswarbo@gmail.com>


* Package name : ocportal
Version : 6.1.1

Programming Lang: PHP
Description : ocPortal is a Content Management System for building and maintaining a dynamic website

ocPortal is a Content Management System (CMS), which acts as the "engine" to run sophisticated,
dynamic Web sites. ocPortal attempts to include as much functionality as possible "out of the
box", with options to disable unwanted modules after installation. An emphasis is placed on
ease of use, with built-in GUIs for all common requirements, whilst reprogramming is supported
through a system of file overrides.

ocPortal sites can host content of various types including news, member blogs, events,
galleries (images, video, audio, Flash), file downloads and user-defined "catalogue" data. Many
modules are included for dynamic features such as forums, chat rooms, Wikis, commenting, rating,
awards, trackbacks, polls, quizzes, ecommerce (products sales and usergroup subscription) and a
'points' system for rewarding contributors. Content can be made available in multiple languages
and will be automatically analysed for Search Engine Optimisation.

Powerful administration tools are available, including banner networks, a comprehensive admin
zone with check lists and reminders, email newsletters (including automatic "What's new?"
issues), site statistics, hacking detection and alerts, backups, theming tools and a powerful
commandline environment.

ocPortal is written in PHP, XHTML and Javascript and conforms to Web and Accessibility standards.
Custom languages are included for theming/templating (Tempcode) and markup (Comcode), the latter
being inspired by the "BBCode" language found on many forums. ocPortal includes its own forum,
called OCF, but can also integrate or import many third-party forums and CMSs. There is currently
at least some support for: AEF, Burning Board, IPB, Joomla, MKPortal, MyBB, phpBB, phpNuke, SMF,
static HTML, vB, Wordpress and WowBB.

ocPortal requires PHP 4.2+ or HipHop, MySQL and a Web server such as Apache. ocPortal
development is supported by ocProducts Ltd.

Dunno. How many text editors, window managers, roguelikes, programming
languages and smtp daemons does Debian need?

When was the last time you saw a DSA for a text editor? (yes, I know they
happen but they are relatively quite rare)

What's up with the hate? It's always convenient to have a package in
Debian, instead of hunting for it upstream. If it rots in Debian, then
it can easily be removed again (or left in Unstable).

Wrong. Every additional package costs the whole Debian project in
numerous ways. That's why we have these discussions up front on all
ITPs, so objections can be voiced.

About the same as the number of C window managers? ;)
You have a valid point, so I've had a quick attempt to justify this. A
quick package search for "cms" and "content management" in all suites
gives 8 distinct, self-described CMS systems in Debian. 5 of these are
written in PHP.

For those which have entries, I've compared them on cmsmatrix.org and
the most impressive entry is WebGUI, which is made in Perl. However, the
(somewhat arbitrary) cmsmatrix feature count is still +4 in favour of
ocPortal. Also, for those who are into it, ocPortal is under the
Affero-style CPAL license, which is the reason I got involved in the
project.

Thanks,
Chris Warburton
