Use this page to create a new perspective for classifying the content of the
page group. When users create pages and items, they can associate them with
as many perspectives as they like. Other users can then choose to view all of
the pages and items associated with a particular perspective.
When you click the Create button,
a link is displayed at the top of the Create Perspective page. Click this link
to edit additional perspective properties. You can also remain on the Create
Perspective page and create additional perspectives, or click Close
to exit the Create Perspective page.
Enter a Display Name to identify
the perspective to other users.
The Display Name is used as the perspective name. It displays on pick
lists and in regions where the perspective attribute is exposed.
Note: Use up to 240 characters of any kind.
indicates a field that requires a value.
- When you create a perspective, a page is also created. This page includes
two Custom Search portlets; one portlet lists all the items that belong to
the perspective, and the other portlet lists all the pages. Regions can be
set up to display perspectives. When users click a perspective, that perspective's
page is displayed, listing all the items and pages that belong to the perspective.
The page's layout and style are determined by the perspectives template that
is provided by default for each page group. This template can be revised if
you want a different look and feel for your perspectives pages. See the next
note. The template controls only the appearance of the perspectives page.
It does not influence the settings of the Custom Search portlets. To edit
the search portlet settings:
- Display the perspective page in Edit mode (in the Portal Navigator,
look under the Perspectives node of the page group that owns the perspective).
- Click the Items tab and then the Edit Defaults
by the search results. Editing these settings influences how perspective
information is displayed on the Items tab.
- Click the Pages tab to bring it forward and then the
Edit Defaults icon ()
to edit how perspective information is displayed on the Pages tab.
- The first time you create a perspective in a page group, a Portal Template
is also created and all perspective pages in the page group are based on this
template. This means that if you want to change the way perspective pages
look, just edit the perspective template (rather than each individual perspective
page). Although you can base any page on this template, we recommend that
you use it only for pages that are used for listing all objects classified
under a particular perspective. The perspective template is located in the
Portal Navigator under the Portal Templates node of the page group that owns
the perspective. Click the Edit link next to the template
to revise its look and feel.
