What to do next

Configure or editing shared settings of an authoring portlet:

Libraries that are selected using the "configure" view are available on all instances of the authoring portlet, regardless of the page on which the portlet appears. Libraries that are selected with the "edit shared settings" view are only available for the current instance of an authoring portlet.

The libraries available in the "insert links" and "insert images" dialogs are based on the libraries that are selected in the "configure" view. If we select a library in the "edit shared settings" view that is not selected in the "configure" view, we are not able to select items from this library when we use the "insert links" and "insert images" dialogs.

We can select libraries specifically for the "insert links" and "insert images" dialogs by doing the following:

  1. Click...

      Administration | Portal User Interface | Manage Pages

  2. Search for the page with the unique name of com.ibm.wps.hiddenpage.wcm.Authoring_Portlet.

  3. Edit the page layout.

  4. Edit the shared settings of the Web Content Authoring portlet.

  5. Select the required libraries and click OK.

  6. Click Done.

If we syndicate or import a library, it is not automatically added to the list of configured libraries for an authoring portlet on the target server. We must add the syndicated or imported library to each authoring portlet on each server.
