Creating Web content pages

Create a new Web content page and associate it with a Web Content Management site or site area.

The simplest way to create a Web content page is to use the administration portlet provided in portal, and that is the process described here. Alternatively, you can also attach content from a Web content site or site area on any existing portal page using the Advanced options section in the page properties. Doing this will essentially make the portal page a Web content page. This also means that a unique public render parameters sharing scope is set on the page if no scope was defined yet.
  1. Log in to the portal as an administrator.
  2. Click Administration in the tool bar.
  3. Under Portal User Interface in the navigation tree, click Manage Pages.
  4. Click New Page from.
  5. Enter a title for the new page.
  6. Optional: Enter a friendly URL that is displayed as part of the URL whenever you go to that page. The friendly URL is intended to be concise and easy to read and remember. It can also be useful to give the page a friendly URL that matches the title of the site area that is attached to the page.
  7. In the Page Template section, select the name of the template to use to create the new Web content page, or select No template to create the page without using a template.
  8. In the Web Content section, select a site or site area to associate with the page.
  9. Click OK.
  10. Add a JSR 286 Web content viewer to the new Web content page.
    Note: This step is only required if you did not use a template to create the new page, or if you did use a template but the template does not contain at least one JSR 286 Web content viewer.
    1. Click the Edit Page Layout icon (small pencil) for the new Web content page.
    2. Click Add portlets and select Web Content Viewer (JSR 286) from the list of portlets.
    3. Click OK and Done.
