Please can the instance-specific properties feature be reintroduced into the main Liferay distribution. For some reason it was removed from version 5.1. It is a really useful feature for customising different instances of the portal and without it I cannot see an alternative way of doing the same thing. I don't really see the benefit of removing it since people who don't want it can simply not use it. See LPS-9. I have had to manually patch my installation to reintroduce it using Marc Champion's port from version 4.3 (thanks Marc!).

Hi Ben,

I followed same process for enabling instance specific properties for my Liferay 5.2.1.

Here the problem is its not over-riding the portal specific properties. In detail

I have created 2 additional domains

abc.com and abcd.com

I have created two properties file by the name portal-abc.com.properties and portal-abcd.com.properties.

I made modification ConfigurationImpl.java and PropsUtil.java as per LPS-9.


I don't know why few properties are over-riding and few are not.

Do u have any idea?

With regards,

S Mohammed Zaheer

Hi Zaheer con you please tell me which portal.properties you are able to over ride with the instance specific properties file.

If control panel theme is one property it would be great for me.
