17.8 Locking Regions

Region locking is a way to limit the types of actions users can perform on a region. This section describes the effect of locking a region and how to lock page regions and Portal Template regions. It contains the following subsections:

17.8.1 Locking a Page Region

Once you lock a page region, when users personalize the page they cannot add content to the region or hide, show, delete, or move existing content. When users edit the page, they can still add, hide, show, delete, and move content.

To lock a page region:

  1. Log in to Oracle Portal.

  2. Click the Build tab to bring it forward.

  3. From the Page Groups portlet Work In drop-down list, select the page group that owns the relevant page.

    By default, the Page Groups portlet is located on the Build tab of the Portal Builder page.

  4. Under Pages in the Layout & Appearance section, click the link to the page on which to lock a region.

    This opens the page in Edit mode.

  5. Click the Edit Region icon in the region to be locked (Figure 17-3).

  6. On the resulting page, go to the Region Content section, and clear the check box Enable Users To Include Content In This Region.

  7. Click OK to save your changes and return to the page.

17.8.2 Locking a Portal Template Region

When you lock a Portal Template region, no user can change the region content on pages that are based on the template (except through WebDAV; see note). When users edit or personalize a page that is based on a template with locked regions, they will not be able to add content to the region, or hide, show, delete, or move existing content.

Note:

If a default item region in a template is set not to allow users to add content, this setting is ignored by WebDAV when adding content to pages that are based on the template.

To lock a Portal Template region:

  1. Log in to Oracle Portal.

  2. Click the Build tab to bring it forward.

  3. From the Page Groups portlet Work In drop-down list, select the page group that owns the relevant Portal Template

    By default, the Page Groups portlet is located on the Build tab of the Portal Builder page.

  4. Under Portal Templates in the Layout & Appearance section, click the link to the relevant template.

    This opens the template in Edit mode.

  5. Click the Edit Region icon in the region to be locked (Figure 17-4).

  6. On the resulting page, go to the Region Content section, and clear the check box Enable Users To Include Content In This Region.

  7. Click OK to save your changes and return to the Portal Template.
