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).

Role based email link for student and employee

Submitted by shardak on Mon, 06/04/2012 - 17:45

We are building custom theme for our new Luminis 5 portal. We want the email link in the tool bar to change based on user roles. In Luminis 5 we could achieve it using Access group MOWA. All our employees use exchange and students have live@EDU. How can the email link be changed based on role. I looked into init_custom.vm where there is a variable $roleService. Has any one tried role based content in LP5 themes?


Security Warning when using MS IE?

Submitted by phillies40 on Fri, 01/27/2012 - 10:24

Hi all

We just installed on our test luminis system running Windows 2003 OS.

When we use MS IE to logon to the system (SSL installed), a "Security Warning" message pop up asking the use "Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered Securely?" but no other browsers like Mozilla and Chrome.

If the use click "NO", everything shows normally but if some content will be blocked when "YES".

Is there any school successfully solved the issue? Thanks!

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/channels/cpicons/channel.xsl (same as above)

we got the following errors:

We are trying to renew and install SSL Certificate for our luminis 4.3 system. We submit a new 2048 bit CSR to Verisign successfully and it returns 2 certificates! We tried to install them both but got errors:
$ keytool -import -v -alias tomcat -file NucleusCert.txt -keystore cacerts -storepass xxxxxxxxx
keytool error: java.lang.Exception: Public keys in reply and keystore don't match
