Using the uPortal build in channels

How to move Icons left?

Submitted by phillies40 on Wed, 09/24/2014 - 14:33

Hi all

Some students of our school complaining about scrolling right in order to logout of luminis system, clicking on Email or Blackboard icons. School instructs me to see if we can move all icons left (Email, BB, Groups, Logout).

I'd been searching Ellucian website but could not find any instructions for this, could anyone help or share experience? (I done it in 3.3 by changing uPortal) thanks!


Building a portal on new LP5.1

Submitted by zy001 on Fri, 10/11/2013 - 10:06

Hi guys,
Today, I am starting this block to record and share my journey of building and customising a new LP5.1 platform with all of you.

The goal:
To build a new dev LP5.1 with highly customised web interface, automated user provisioning process with external AD/LDAP/IM application, and highly independent service oriented portal framework to support portlet channels (based on current own framework and uPortal / JSP modle 2 channels).

The intent of this blog is to hear how other upgrades have gone, particularly if the upgrade path is similar to what will need to be done here. Version 3.x to version 5.x.

Hi all

We want to remove an additional icon in our luminis (We have Email and GMail icons, we want to remove GMail for Groupwise after upgrading to Google mail) but after changing the following files:

$CP_ROOT/webapps/luminis/WEB-INF/uPortal/org/jasig/portal/layout/tab-column/nested-tables/nested-tables.xsl (comment out Email part)
$CP_ROOT/webapps/luminis/WEB-INF/uPortal/org/jasig/portal/channels/cpicons/channel.xsl (same as above)

we got the following errors:

System Error

Can't service request to /render.userLayoutRootNode.uP

File Manager - ESUP Stockage Portlet

Submitted by brippe on Tue, 10/18/2011 - 12:59

Anyone using a file manager with Luminis IV? I've modified and configured ESUP File Manager Portlet to display files for download which works fine in uPortal 2.5. However, the moment I move the portlet to Luminis and modify the emptySessionPath to "true" for Tomcat's Connectors, luminis is unable to render any of it's channels in Internet Explorer. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Portal Version

Submitted by toneill on Mon, 03/14/2011 - 16:10

Hi Everyone,

We are currently evaluating the advantages to upgrading to the latest LP 4 version (4.3.0). I was wondering what most people are running these days and if there were any tales of caution or errors to look out for in the upgrades. We are currently on 4.2.0 and plan to go to at least 4.2.3. Any input is appreciated and helpful.
