In case you're working on multiple Liferay servers, like I frequently do, you might have seen this problem, and fell for it: In the backend, namely Control Panel and Site Administration, they all look the same. Rarely do I see anybody working on a new "Admin Theme" for those places. I've had enough of trying to decipher the URL and host name, and decided to do something about it, that doesn't...

Introduction So when you start building your own fragments and using them on your content pages, you will often times run into an issue with propagation... So I like to create fragments for headers and footers and then use those fragments on every page that I build. But when I update those fragments, I have to go into the usages panel to do the propagation so they all get updated. If you...

Overview   Search is one of the fundamental Liferay features, which provides users with the possibility to quickly find the content they look for. It’s powerful, pretty much configurable, and flexible.  However, during implementation of the latest project for our client we run into a bunch of issues. Some of them were Liferay bugs or missing functionality, other ones - configuration...

In the ancient past, Liferay had a feature to discover individual portlet's rendering times. It looks like this got lost with the move to OSGi -  but it's also reasonably simple to replace. Especially when it's for portlets only (fragments are still on the to-do list) Some portlets take longer than others. While that's ok - they typically provide more value and dynamic content - you might...

Overview While working on an intranet with on of our clients in the APAC region, we discovered that private pages are not indexed correctly, thus having issues when searching content. Product team is already aware of this and have already logged a ticket here. While adding features to Liferay is all good and well, we don't have the time to wait for the product team, and thus this...

In a native React application, it is common that you have the CSS separated by components like I said here, actually maybe you want to use a separate SCSS to take advantage from SASS. So to do it in a Liferay React Application, we need to do some configurations.  Why?  We are working a Structure of OSGi Bundles Containing NPM Packages wrapper by Portlet Component, for this reason,...

When we generate a React Widget project for Liferay DXP from Yeoman (liferay-js template), you can see, in the scaffolding, we have the CSS file in assets/css folder with the style.css file (set to load on our portlet-header, in the package.json).  It is common, in a native React application to have the CSS separated by components. So to have the CSS separated by components in a Liferay...

Introduction I posted two blog posts this week, and each of them had a particular drawback - lack of cluster coordination. The first blog post on cluster-enabled upgrade processes introduced using an @Reference dependency upon a specific Release version, the idea being that the component shouldn't start unless that version was available. When the upgrade process would run on the cluster...

Just a quick one... I've just updated my Log Persister project for Liferay 7.3. You can find it under the 7.3 branch: https://github.com/dnebing/log-persist/tree/7.3 For those that aren't aware, I introduced the Log Persister here: https://liferay.dev/blogs/-/blogs/liferay-7-dxp-making-logging-changes-persistent Normally Liferay does not persist logging. If you make any changes in...

This blog post is the second of a series I've just started. The previous one dealt with some recipes to deal with backend REST APIs integration, using Swagger Codegen, Retrofit and showcasing Portlet's 3.0 PortletAsyncContext in order to manage web service calls in an asynchronous fashion, so as to reduce the footprint of our code on the Thread Pool. This second blog post now deals with...

With this first blog, I'd like to start a series about application integration. Quite often, I encounter projects where Liferay must integrate with some backend services. There are lots of integration patterns. Integration may happen at browser or server side. There are many development frameworks available (React, Vue, MVC Portlet, Liferay Faces, Spring MVC Portlet...) Communication with...

When we generate an Angular Widget project for Liferay DXP from yeoman (liferay-js template), you should realize in the scaffolding, there are assets/{static_folder}/{static_files} and the src/{modules_and_clases}. So at the moment, all static’s file should be put into the assets folder, where you can find for example the CSS file in assets/css folder with the style.css file (set to load on our...

I recently was helping a client with an upgrade process and that had run into a little problem... A few of the model hints were not updated on some of the columns in their Service Builder services and, as we all know, Service Builder will not ensure the columns are changed in a production environment (well, actually any environment where the schema.module.build.auto.upgrade property is not set...

En aquel momento era diciembre de 2020 y la pandemia ya nos había dejado casi un año sin encuentros presenciales de nuestra comunidad en todo el mundo. En esa ocasión realizamos el primer encuentro de desarrolladores Liferay en español en LATAM en línea, pensando que las restricciones se encontraban cerca de su fin y que pronto podríamos encontrarnos presencialmente en alguna parte de la...
