13 Modifying a Content Selector

Developers can use Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse 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.

This chapter includes the following sections:

13.1 Modifying a Content Selector

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:

  1. Start the Administration Console.

  2. Choose Interaction > Content Selectors.

  3. In the Resource Tree, select the Content Selector you want to edit.

  4. Select the Content Selector property and click the Edit icon, as shown in Figure 13-1.

    Figure 13-1 Edit a Content Selector Property

    Description of Figure 13-1 follows
    Description of "Figure 13-1 Edit a Content Selector Property"

    Depending on how the Content Selector was defined in Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse, 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

  1. Enter your change and click Save, as shown in Figure 13-2.

    Description of Figure 13-2 follows

  1. 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    The Content Selector gets results from the Search cache, which might contain outdated Search results.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.

13.2 Deleting a Content Selector and Query

Deleting a Content Selector or a Content Selector query removes the Content Selector or the query from Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse and the Administration Console. See Section 6.4, "Deleting a Content Selector Query" and Section 6.5, "Deleting a Content Selector" for instructions.


You should also delete any <pz:contentSelector> tags in your JSPs that reference the Content Selector you deleted.
