Adding Custom Portlets

By default, the WelcomePage.config file contains template code for a custom portlet.

However, this code is commented out and ignored by the Self Service Portal.

<!--<add Title="FRAME_TITLE.CUSTOM"
PortletType="Custom"
AnonymousAccess="false"
Height="300"
URL="http://w3schools.com/"/>-->

To add this custom portlet to the Home page, remove the opening <!-- and closing --> comment statements and replace the default URL value with your URL, as described in Customizing Portlets. You can also change other attribute values if necessary.

You can also create additional custom portlets to display content from different URLs.

TIP: You can also embed custom JavaScript to the Home page. For details, see Embedding Custom JavaScript to the SSP.
