{portlets}

The {portlets} TAG enables your template to use the BIGACE Portlet system.

Make sure your design is marked with “Portlet support”, otherwise your user won't see the Portlet Administration link.

Attributes

  • assign - (required, string)

The name of the template variable portlets will be assigned to.

  • id - (optional, int)

The ID to load the portlets for. If not set the requested menu id will be used.

  • lang - (optional, int)

The language to load the portlets for. If not set the requested menu language will be used.

  • name - (optional, string)

The name of the portlet column to fetch (comma separated list if more than one is used). Skip this attribute if you just use one column!

Examples

Example 1 - one portlet column

This example shows how to display the portlets (one portlet column) for a template.

<html>
<head>
   <title>Portlets for {$MENU->getName()}</title>
   {portlets assign="myPortlets"}
   {foreach from=$myPortlets item="portlet"}
       {$portlet->getJavascript()}
   {/foreach}
</head>
<body>
   <div id="content">
      ... your content here ...
   </div>
 
   <div id="portletColumn">
     {foreach from=$myPortlets item="portlet"}
        {$portlet->getJavascript()}
        <h2><em>{$portlet->getTitle()}</em></h2>
        {$portlet->getHtml()}
     {/foreach}
   </div>
</body>
</html>

Example 2 - two portlet columns

This example shows how to display two portlet columns in a template. The two columns for the design are configured in administration and have the names “sidebar” and “footer”.

Here we use the array function of the {portlet} tag.

<html>
<head>
   <title>Portlets for {$MENU->getName()}</title>
   {portlets assign="myPortlets" name="sidebar,footer"}
   {foreach from=$myPortlets.sidebar item="portlet"}
       {$portlet->getJavascript()}
   {/foreach}
   {foreach from=$myPortlets.footer item="portlet"}
       {$portlet->getJavascript()}
   {/foreach}
</head>
<body>
 
   <div id="sidebar">
     {foreach from=$myPortlets.sidebar item="portlet"}
        {$portlet->getJavascript()}
        <h2><em>{$portlet->getTitle()}</em></h2>
        {$portlet->getHtml()}
     {/foreach}
   </div>
 
   <div id="content">
      ... your content here ...
   </div>
 
   <div id="footer">
     {foreach from=$myPortlets.footer item="portlet"}
        {$portlet->getJavascript()}
        <h2><em>{$portlet->getTitle()}</em></h2>
        {$portlet->getHtml()}
     {/foreach}
   </div>
</body>
</html>
