Re: Arrows disappear while working with navigation macro...

inspector_zenigata
Here is the page:

http://ul.uakron.edu/dotcms/ul-test.jpg

This is the CSS I'm using to style those four buttons:

http://ul.uakron.edu/dotcms/nav-css.pdf

This is how it's setup in the template:

<div id="navmenu">
                                                               
        #navigation(2,0)
                                                       
        </div>

Re: Re: Arrows disappear while working with navigation macro...

Jim Serio-2
Without looking at the source code for that frame, I cannot offer much.
Looking at the image (ul-test.jpg) I see there is some overlap in the top
(purple) navigation bar into the "Library News" container. I suspect this
could be part of the problem.

Try searching the page source for "form_menu" which is the JavaScript
function responsible for reordering the menu. You can also search for "
reorder.gif" which is the image of those arrows. They are wrapped in a class
called "menuReorder."

Re: Arrows disappear while working with navigation macro...

inspector_zenigata
Here is the source output for the site:

http://ul.uakron.edu/dotcms/code.pdf

I didn't notice "form_menu" in the source code.

...I highlighted where my navigation is at in yellow.

Re: Re: Arrows disappear while working with navigation macro...

Jim Serio-2
This doesn't appear to be the source from within the "preview" frame in
dotCMS (where the arrows should show up). Bring up your page in dotCMS and
right-click in the right frame and choose "view source." Also... if you
could copy it to pastbin.ca and post the link that would be better than a
PDF.

dotCMS integration

Currently dotCMS has functionality to drive a Site that is created in it
fully. I need the dotCMS-created-site and need to be able to access the
content of the dotCMS-created-site in another stand alone Liferay Portal. In
the stand-alone-liferay-portal the CMS content is being placed with other
portlets on a single page. This portlet is only able to render the content
and its layouts which both are defined in dotCMS site. Has this been done
already? Any direction would be appreciated. Is it possible to log into the
Liferay admin screen? I tried the standard liferay admin login but it seems
to recognize only the dotCMS group and takes me to there default landing
page.

Re: dotCMS integration

Jason Tesser-2
A couple of questions/thoughts

1. Are you trying to access the content from a separate instance of
liferay or just a separate portlet with the same system?

2. If you are doing it in the same dotCMS/liferay instance then you
can use you apis/classes as we do to pull the content.  We are
currently refactoring our code to create easy to use and robust apis.
So this is getting much easier to do

3. If it is a separate liferay portal then you would need to expose
our code via webservices.  Which can be done but is not implemented in
the open source project code right now.  dotCMS would be able to do
this kind of customization though through a work order.

4.  The dotCMS groups/roles etc... are the liferay groups and roles.
By default you should be able to log in with [hidden email]:test if
it is a new install.

Hope this helps,

Hi Mickey,

The Liferay portal inside dotCMS is basically forked at a certain point
and developed out as needed, so it's a possibility the default Liferay
functions or entry points behave somewhat differently indeed. My 2
cents, until a developer can tell you more.

Regards, Ted

Re: Arrows disappear while working with navigation macro...

I don't see "form_menu" in the page source. I

 also do not see the class "menuReorder". The code that appears is
very short and makes no reference to anything that would pertain to
the menu.

RE: dotCMS integration

Mickey Hariparsad
In reply to this post by Jason Tesser-2
Thanks Jason. I have other portlets built in Liferay 3.0 that I need
working. I am not sure if this dotCMS + Liferay solution will be able to
hold the portlets. The aim is to achieve a Portal environment driven by
Liferay in terms of navigation and page structure. So in a single a page, I
need multiple portlets. Some of these portlets will be a content portlet
which displays content from dotCMS and others are stuts portlets. Is the
normal Liferay functionality still available in terms of creating a new page
and adding portlets to the page. I am able to log in with the default login.
I am now treated as a CMS administrator not a Liferay Administrator where I
could create pages and drop portlets onto them.

1. Are you trying to access the content from a separate instance of
liferay or just a separate portlet with the same system?

2. If you are doing it in the same dotCMS/liferay instance then you
can use you apis/classes as we do to pull the content. We are

RE: dotCMS integration

Mickey Hariparsad
Sorry just to clear this up more, is dotCMS a Portal Container, so the
Liferay code has been customized on this level. Or is dotCMS a portlet in
the Liferay portal.

Re: dotCMS integration

Jason Tesser-2
dotCMS is many portlets on top of liferay.  At times we will
manipulate the underlying liferay code but not too much.  Mainly to
fix bugs and improve the way things work. You should be able to deploy
any portlet you could have in Liferay 3.2
