Disabling the preview option

If you do not want to offer the preview option in your authoring system, you can disable it globally or for individual virtual portals. If you disable the preview option, the portal no longer shows the preview context menu in the action bar of the site toolbar.

About this task

You disable the preview option in the virtual portal configuration service.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the WebSphere® Integrated Solutions Console as an administrator.
  2. Click Resources > Resource Environment > Resource Environment Providers.
  3. Click WP VirtualPortalConfigService.
  4. Update the appropriate configuration properties, depending on whether you want to disable the feature globally or for a specific virtual portal only:
    • To disable preview in the entire portal, including all virtual portals, proceed as follows:
      1. Click Custom properties.
      2. Edit the property global.wp_toolbar_sitepreview.enabled, and set its value to false.
      3. Save your changes.
    • To disable preview for a specific virtual portal, proceed as follows:
      1. Click Custom properties.
      2. To disable preview for the default virtual portal, edit the property default.wp_toolbar_sitepreview.enabled, and set its value to false.
      3. To disable preview for any other virtual portal than the default virtual portal, specify the following properties:
        context.virtual_portal_context.property.wp_toolbar_sitepreview.enabled = false
        Set the value for this property to false. Replace virtual_portal_context with the context of the target virtual portal. Example: context.vp1.property.wp_toolbar_sitepreview.enabled = false.
        hostname.virtual_portal_hostname.property.wp_toolbar_sitepreview.enabled = false
        Set the value for this property to false. Replace virtual_portal_hostname with the host name of the target virtual portal. Example: hostname.vp.example.com.property.wp_toolbar_sitepreview.enabled = false.
      If you defined the property global.wp_toolbar_sitepreview.enabled listed earlier, it acts as a fallback setting for virtual portals that do not have the preview option set.
