Personalizing Your Home Page


Concept


Steps:

  1. Use the Content and Layout links to personalize your homepage.

     

    Click the Content link.

    Step 1
  2. Select the displayed check boxes to choose the pagelets that you want to appear on your personalized homepage.

     

    The selection of pagelets is preset by the portal administrator. You can preview each pagelet by clicking the pagelet name. A preview of the pagelet opens in another smaller window. If a pagelet is not available to you, text in the pagelet indicates this. Any links in the pagelet are disabled.

    Step 2
  3. Once your selections are made, you can arrange how the pagelets appear on your homepage by navigating to the Personalize Layout page.

     

    Click the Personalize Layout link.

    Step 3
  4. You can select a basic layout of two columns or three columns.

     

    A two-column layout results in one narrow column on the left side of your homepage and one wider column to the right. A three-column layout results in three narrow columns of equal width. If you place a wide pagelet in a narrow column, the column stretches to accommodate the wider pagelet.

    Step 4
  5. Note that the system moves required pagelets (indicated by the # sign) from the third to the second column when you select two-column layout.

    Step 5
  6. You arrange the pagelets by highlighting a pagelet name and clicking the arrow keys. You can move pagelets right or left, from one column to another, and up and down within a column.

    Step 6
  7. To delete a pagelet, select it and click the Delete Pagelet button. Note that this does not remove the pagelet from the system—it only removes it from your personal homepage.

    Step 7
  8. Click the Return to Home link.

    Step 8

In summary, you use the Content and Layout links to personalize your homepage.
