Developers can use Workshop for WebLogic to create Content Selectors and place them in a JSP. Portal administrators use the WebLogic Portal Administration Console to make changes to the Content Selectors that display content in the portal. Developer time is not required to update Content Selectors.
Content Selectors allow you to define the content you want a particular type of visitor to see. Modifying a Content Selector property allows you to change the content that is displayed.
Perform the following steps to modify a Content Selector property:
Start the Administration Console.
Choose Interaction > Content Selectors.
In the Resource Tree, select the Content Selector you want to edit.
Select the Content Selector property and click Edit, as shown in Figure 13-1.

Depending on how the Content Selector was defined in Workshop for WebLogic, you can edit the following properties:
Whether any or all conditions apply
If the visitor belongs to specific User Segments
If the visitor has certain characteristics
The visitor's HTTP session
The visitor's HTTP request
The current date
The current date is after a particular date
The current date and time is after a particular date and time
The current time is between two particular times
The current date is between two particular dates
The current date and time is between two particular dates and times
The result of the content search
Enter your change and click Save, as shown in Figure 13-2.

To view your selections, click Show Previews.
The Content Selector gets results from the Search cache, which might contain outdated Search results. Refreshing your browser does not clear the Search cache. You can flush the Search cache in the Administration Console by choosing Configuration & Monitoring > Service Administration. In the Resource Tree, expand Cache Manager. Select searchCache (you might need to click Next to see all the caches) and click Flush.
