Portal Look and feel questions.

I have an idea, How to do, but I want to make sure, I am following the right path.

1. company want to customize look and feel of the portal (masthead,ToplevelNavigation and detail Navigation).

But another user group want to keep original SAP look and feel for some supporting purpose.

How do I provide two different look and feel of the portal for different users. (different portal desktops, 1.default frame work 2. custom framework + theme??)

2. Changing Logo and images via theme or Par, which way is better for above condition

4.how do I add background image for one level TLN, I am using Standard Framework page

6. How to move tool bar right side, only way via Par right?

Thanks

Jey

    Hi Jeyakumar,

    You can create your own desktop and theme for specific users.

    Create a theme and assign it to your custom desktop.Then create a new rule in

    the Master Rule Collection and then assign that Desktop to the reqd user.

    <i>Pls remember to copy the default desktop before modifying it</i>.

    There is a limit to what you can accomplish using themes ,like for

    shifting images ,then the par approach will have to be used .

    Yes, you can move the search in tool area using the par.

    Hope this helps

    Regards

    Vineeth

    Hello Jeyakumar,

    > 1: You can define rules with Rule Collections, where you can say which Portal Desktop shuold be shown for which user or group or role.

    Hi Jeyakumar,

    1. You can show different themes for different users.

    In your case you need two different themes to be shown for two set of users.

    For this you can create two differnt groups and assign the users to this group.

    Check this link for assigning two different themes to different groups.

    Portal Branding for specific user

    Instead of user you give group in the rule collection.

    2. Change the logo using theme.

    3. You can do the backgroud image by changing the tag libraries. Please check the blogs.

    Regards

    Arun

    Hi,

    Q1: For the origional SAP look, can I call default desktop(default framework page) in the desktop rule? ---Yes

    For other users, I need to create new desktop (custom framework page + theme), right? ---Yes

    When I copy default framework page, paste or paste as delta link? --- probably doesnt matter, but do delta link

    Q2: What about logo and images, which way is better, via theme or par for above condition. --- Depends how much customization you have. If all you want is to add a logo and set the colors, then use the theme. If you want to add images and other functionality, then modify the header iView.

    I have an external css file, I can put it in css folder in the par file but how do i call in Headerview.JSP, do you have any resources? --- something like this:

    IResource myStyle = request.getResource("css", "css/myCSS.css");

    response.include(request, myStyle);

    Q4: Create own TLN means using taglib, but I am using statndard Frame work page not light frame workpage. --- tag library is available for both

    Modifying TLN means adding image in the par file image folder and calling into the jsp file right? ---Yes

    Q5: Mving search box to right, only can do by modifying par file right?

    --- which search box do you mean?
