Opening bookmark in portal desktop.

Hello All,

When I open a portal bookmark which is in the favourites in Internet Explorer, it opens without the surrounding desktop. e.g. just the iView will open. Is there a way I can get the bookmark to open within the portal desktop?

    Try passing the NavMode parameter. Append "&NavMode=2" to your URL and it will be displayed within the portal desktop as you indicated.

    • Nick,

      Just a small note...The url you mention is an iView that is called directly from the PCD. So even if you would add the propery &NavMode=2 then it still wouldn't do the magic as there is no reference wit a role. so it cannot position in the nav structure.

      I hope you get what I mean.

    Hello Nick,

    You can create a link with a combination with the short URLs and the bookmark ID

    http://<portal>:<port>/irj/portal?NavigationTarget=navurl://<short URL ID>&BOOKMARK=<Bookmark ID>

    Short URL ID:

    You can find it here: Systemadministration --> Navigation --> Short URLS

    Bookmark inside a Webtemplate:

    Activate the Bookmark option in the context menu in the WAD

    First try to find the correct short urls ID and if this work, find the correct bookmark ID and after all put both parameter in the new URL together. I need use the link for broadcasting and it works fine.

    kind Regards
