    You can use the Javascript based client side eventing mechanism to navigate to an ESS page. Find the desired page in the Portal Content Studio (role editor) and note the URI. You can find this by clicking on the page and choosing "Properties". Locate the "PCD Location" property box. It will be something like:

    portal_content/every_user/general/eu_role/com.sap.portal.mypages/com.sap.portal.eu_ws/com.sap.portal.home

    Copy this value to clipboard and Change to:

    ROLES://portal_content/every_user/general/eu_role/com.sap.portal.mypages/com.sap.portal.eu_ws/com.sap.portal.home

    Use this value in a call to the doNavigate() function:

    <A HREF="welcome" onclick="return EPCM.doNavigate ('ROLES://portal_content/every_user/general/eu_role/com.sap.portal.mypages/com.sap.portal.eu_ws/com.sap.portal.home')">This is the Welcome Page</A>

    Hi Will,

      Hey guys...

      If you want to launch a page using an href... try this (for EP 5.0.5.0):

      <a href="#" onClick="return EPCM.doNavigate(' pageName ')">

      It works great for me. I didn't have the full link for the page name, just com.sap.pct.hcm.eeprofileskills.

      Best of luck...

      Kevin
