Customize Portal Homepage


I am working on EP 2.0 SP6 and want to know whether I can customize the portal homepage. If yes, kindly let me know of any sample code/link for the same.

I want to change the look of the Portal homepage(page after user logs into Portal). I want the navigation bar (which appears on left side currently) to appear on top (like second level navigation), etc.

Also read help pages but was not able to find the required data.

Thanks and Warm Regards,

    I think You ment EP6 SP2...

    To Your Problem. It's hard to give You an advice because Your question makes no sense:

    The Navigation on the left side is sort of fine-tuning-navigation with an "bottomless" tree. Displaying a tree on the top would be strange....

    I hope You don't mind

      Hi Walter,

      Thank you for your reply.

      I found the way and am on the process of customizing the portal homepage.

      Actually I am experimenting, trying to find out all posibilities that can be done to change the look&feel of SAP Portal HomePage.

      Thanks and Warm Regards,

    Hi Ritu,

    I not really know, what you meen.

    The most of the layout thinks you can change in systemadministration -> portal di. In the theme editor you have to choose a default and make a copy of this. Than you can change what ever you want. After this you will need a display rule, a portal desktop and perhaps a new framework page.

    Some other things you can "customize", do this careful, it could be overwritten with updates! For example:

    The number of items in the catalog tree you can change in ContentProvidedBySAP->Admin Interfaces -> Admin iView Templates->

    Also you can change the text format for TreeNodes in display name, display id or both with iView Portal Content Catalog - Portal Content Studio.

    The iview Top-Level Navigation can perhaps help you to change the number of levels in the top-level navigation. But I don't think, that you can put the left side navigation completly in the top.

    Have a lot of fun with trying this. 😊

    I would like to know, if you can solve your problem.

    greetings Anke
