We at CIGNEX developed a theme in Liferay Portal which could be used by many communities with different look and feel.   Which means you develop theme only once and use as different themes in various liferay portal sites.

We achieved this functionality by using a theme and by overriding the existing theme look and feel with the theme admin portlet. 

What is the benefit ?

  • No need to spend time and money creating different themes with code changes for different communities.
  • Easy to create and update the colour scheme and apply it for different community.
  • Admin can create 3 level page navigation menu with proper configuration.
  • Apart from these tasks you can also integrate user friendly omniture and google analytics functionality with this portlet.
