The main idea of this post is to help you locate the “generic-site-resources.xml” file and modify its content.
WebCenter Portal can handle resources in 2 different ways:
Creating a resource is a topic I will talk in a different post. What I will like to share with you is how to change the visibility of new resources in Design Time.
A good example is a Content Template, whenever you create a Content Template in Design Time, this resource by default gets a visibility to False, you can change this in runtime, but if you’re developing to test is a pain to change this property every time you lose your MDS.
Lets create a dummy content template:
By default with this settings you’re have your content template not visible. To make it visible you have 2 options:
- Run your Portal,
A.- Go to admin section then content presenter,
B.- Look for your template and make it visible.
THE IMPORTANT BIT
- Edit the generic-site-resources.xml file.
Just look for your template, in my case “org.mauro.ct.blog” look for the tag “<resource>” and modify the visible property from FALSE to TRUE.
