The ideal scenario is to separate Portal-Content contribution from Portal-Content delivery. This post explains how to do it with just one Portal instance.

How can I make Content Presenter working with two Content Repositories at the same time based on user Roles?

First of all there are some points to remember about Content Presenter:

  • Two ways to configure it:
    • Configuration Dialog: Is the way for end users to configure in Runtime the content to be shown.

    • Configuration Properties: Is the way to follow in Design or where the configuration requires complex EL Expressions

  • TIP: If the Content Presenter is configured via Configuration Properties then any change in Configuration Dialog is override by the Properties one.

Basically the solutions consists in having a Page Parameter that calculates the Content Repository to be used by Content Presenter.

Finally configure Content Presenter using Configuration Properties in order to use the calculated repository

TIP: The Page Parameter can be configured in a Page Style and then each Page created in Runtime will have the current repository
