Can't create a new portal desktop


I try to create a new page layout according to the instructions that can be found on

I start with creating a new portal project in Eclipse. I then create a new file in directory dist/PORTAL_INF/jsp called fullWidth.jsp. In this file I add the code:

I save the project and uploads the par file to the server. The par file is uploaded and the folder can be found in the pcd directory.

I then create a new template layout (New From Portal Archive-Layout) in the Portal Content/Templates/Template Layouts folder in the EP 6. When this is done the template is added to the folder.

I then create a new page of this template. The template can be chosen in the list. The problem is that when the new page is created and I have added an iview that works on other pages, nothing are shown on the page when I do the preview.

Does anyone have a clue I will be happy! I have found this documentation at :

    PS make sure that you name the new par file something else like

    Best regards,
