7.9 Defining the Display of Sub-Page Links

The sub-page links region is a region that is dedicated to the display of links to the current page's sub-pages. No other types of content display in a sub-page links region. Sub-page links regions enable rapid inclusion of navigational links to pages that are lower in the current page hierarchy.

Using the page-level configuration properties that control the display of sub-page links, you can define which sub-pages should display in a sub-page links region and specify whether sub-page links should display in alphabetical order.


Sub-page links display options affect a page only when that page contains a sub-page links region. For additional information about sub-page links regions, see Section 10.2.7, "Setting Sub-Page Links Region Properties".

To define the display of sub-page links:

  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 the Pages heading in the Layout & Appearance section, click the link to the relevant page.

    This opens the page in Edit mode.

  5. Click the Page: Properties link in the toolbar at the top of the page.

  6. On the resulting page, click the Optional tab to bring it forward.

  7. Go to the Sub Page Display section, and select the sub-page or pages you will display from the Available Sub-Pages list.

    To make multiple selections:

    • In Windows operating systems, hold down the Control key and click each selection.

    • In UNIX operating systems, click each selection.

  8. Click the Move icon to move selections from the Available Sub-Pages list to the Displayed Sub-Pages list.

    Click the Move All icon to move all available sub-pages to the Displayed Sub-Pages list.

  9. To rearrange the display order, select a sub-page and click the Move Up and Move Down icons to the right of the Displayed Sub-Pages list.

  10. To arrange sub-pages alphabetically, select the Display Objects Alphabetically check box.

    The Move Up and Move Down icons disappear when you select this option. Any sub-pages you move to the Displayed Sub-Pages list will be inserted automatically in alphabetical order.

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