22.7 Troubleshooting Parameters and Events

I want to edit a page parameter but it is inherited from a template.

When an Inherited from Template icon appears next to a page parameter, it means that the page parameter is inherited from the Portal Template on which the page is based. To edit, delete, or move a page parameter that is inherited from a Portal Template, you must edit, delete, or move the parameter in the template itself.

Similarly, if an event is associated with a portlet that is inherited from a Portal Template, you must edit the event in the template itself.

My Page portlet includes a parameter but I am not sure what syntax to use.

The Page portlet includes a parameter (named Page) that, if used, requires a value in the format PAGEGROUPID_PAGEID. To make use of this on a regular page, you must either:

  • Assign a constant value, such as 6_1, directly to the Page portlet's parameter.

  • Create a page parameter, map it to the Page portlet's parameter, then assign a value, such as 6_1, to the page parameter.

To obtain values for PAGEGROUPID and PAGEID, enter page Edit mode and display page properties by clicking the Page Properties icon in the toolbar at the top of the page.

When you use the Page parameter to define a page for your Page portlet, it overrides page selections on the Edit Defaults/Personalize pages. If the Page parameter is specified, any Edit Defaults/Personalize page selections are ignored.
