As many of you know, a while ago we presented AlloyEditor as the result of our quest for a delightful and productive editing experience. Alloy Editor was included by default as the rich editor in Liferay 7 (Yay!)   While we stand by it, our search for simplicity has inadvertently complicated some previously trivial tasks such as adding an alt attribute to an image. You...

It’s been awhile since I’ve had a chance to clarify both our current status as well as our future direction, so I wanted to do that here.

I am pleased to announce the release of:  Liferay Portal 7.0 CE GA3!  [Download Now] What's New Overriding LPKG Files: A while back I wrote a blog entry on patching OSGi modules. The original process wasn't very elegant because it involved altering the out of the box .lpkg files. GA3 now includes a way to override the out of the box modules without altering the...

I wanted to share some testing that I have been doing in terms of patching OSGi modules and adding the patched modules to your own Liferay installations.  One of the many benefits to modularity is that it allows for these kinds of changes to be made without having to recompile the whole platform from scratch. Update: This procedure has been updated to make use of a new...

Last month, I attended BizBash LA for the second time (you can see my 2015 recap here). I had a great time hearing from industry leaders and meeting fellow event professionals. It’s one of the few times I get to enjoy events from the attendees’ perspective, and it was reaffirming to realize that as planners, we all encounter unpredictable issues at our events, no matter how much...

Every 30 seconds, someone becomes a victim of human trafficking. It’s a sad reality, and here are some common myths and misconceptions about this crime: “Human trafficking victims always come from situations of poverty or from small rural villages.”  Reality: Although poverty can be a factor in human trafficking because it is often an indicator of vulnerability, poverty alone...

For my very first EVP trip, my family and I had to opportunity to shadow the day-to-day operations of Solidarity Brasil and ABBA. These organizations share many of the same core values as Liferay to care for children in their city, São Paulo, Brazil. What I did varied from manual labor for a house that will be used as an aftercare center for underage girls victimized by...

Today I’m writing to announce that we are discontinuing support for Liferay Connected Services and Audience Targeting for Liferay Portal 7 Community.

There's been some confusion over state of Maven support for Liferay. As the Product Manager for Developer Tools, I feel responsible for the confusion and felt the need to clear up any questions. Will Liferay support Maven development for 6.1, 6.2, and 7.0? Short answer, yes, most definitely! In 6.1 and 6.2, we’ve been provided support through liferay-maven-support plugin....
