Adding the social rendering theme module to a theme profile

For the social lists provided by social rendering to work, the theme that renders these lists needs to load CSS and JavaScript files. To include the CSS and JavaScript files in your theme, you need to add the wp_social_lists_v1_1 theme module to your theme.

About this task

The presentation components that the social rendering feature provides and that the social lists use rely on specific CSS styles and JavaScript files that the theme needs to load. To load those styles, you need to make sure that the wp_social_lists_v1_1 theme module is available in the theme profile that is active on the page that renders the social list. If the wp_social_lists_v1_1 theme module is not loaded for a page, the social list does not look as expected, and users cannot interact with the social lists on that page.

Until HCL Portal CF05, the theme module was wp_social_rendering_85. If you have portal with CF05 or earlier, use wp_social_rendering_85 for the theme module instead of wp_social_lists_v1_1. This applies to the configuration task examples listed in the following.

To determine which HCL Portal theme profiles already specify the wp_social_lists_v1_1 theme module, review the theme profiles that come with the portal installation.

To add the theme module to your theme, you register the theme module by using the add-theme-modules portal configuration task. For more information, see the following examples.
