11.9 Making a Style Available to Other Users

There are two levels for making a style available:

When you publish a style, it becomes selectable on style pick lists in the page group that owns the style. When you share a style across page groups, it becomes selectable on style pick lists across all page groups.

This section describes how to publish and share styles. It includes the following subsections:

11.9.1 Publishing a Style to Other Users

You can make any style you create available for use by privileged users within the page group that owns it.

To make a style available within a page group:

  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 style.

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

    Tip:

    If the style is used by more than one page group, you will find it under the Shared Objects page group.

  4. Under Styles in the Layout & Appearance section, click the style to be edited.

    This opens the Properties tab of the Edit Style page.

  5. Click the Main tab to bring it forward.

  6. Under Style Usage, select Make available for use in this page group.

  7. Click OK to save your change and exit the Edit Style page.

11.9.2 Sharing a Style Across Page Groups

Move a style to the Shared Objects page group to make it available for use in all portal page groups.

Note:

Objects can be moved to the Shared Objects page group—whose default language is English—from a non-English page group only if the object already has an English translation. This applies to all promotable objects:

  • Item types

  • Page types

  • Attributes

  • Styles

  • Categories

  • Perspectives

To move a style to the Shared Objects page group:

  1. Log in to Oracle Portal.

  2. Click the Build tab to bring it forward.

  3. Click the Navigator link at the top of the page.

    This opens the Portal Navigator.

  4. In the Portal Navigator, click the Page Groups tab to bring it forward.

  5. Click the page group link for the page group that contains the style to be moved.

  6. On the resulting page, click the Styles node.

    Only the styles you are authorized to see and the actions you are authorized to perform are displayed.

  7. Click the Moved to shared link next to the style to be moved to the Shared Objects page group.
