In Sakai 2.6, how do I create a template-based portfolio?

To begin creating a template-based portfolio, follow the instructions in Creating a portfolio. When you are ready to add content, click Add/Edit Content, and proceed according to the instructions on the page, which may vary depending on the template you have chosen. You may see options to select items from a drop-down list, create new items, or edit existing items.

If you see a Required Settings link, you must decide certain options before you can view your portfolio. Click Required Settings to enter them. These settings will vary according to the template, but may include any or all of the following:

  • Display Name: Serves as the name of your portfolio within the system. A default name is provided; change this default to a meaningful name. The display name is not displayed in your portfolio.
  • Your Name in the Portfolio: Your name as you would like it displayed in the portfolio website.
  • Portfolio Title: The title of your portfolio as you would like it displayed in the portfolio website.
  • Theme: Your choice of a theme for your portfolio (additional portfolios can be created with different themes at any time).

When you've finished entering the required settings, at the bottom of the page, click Save Changes.

After selecting the required settings, you can click Preview the Portfolio in the upper right corner of the page to see your portfolio, including the settings, the basic styling, and any content you have added so far.

To return to the list of all portfolios, in the upper right corner of the page, click Return to List.
