Look and Feel Option on Portlets Disappeared

We have a Liferay configuration running on 6.0.6 version and it has been drawn to my attention that the " look and feel" option on individual portlets has disappeared. No idea when this changed or what has caused it. Could it be anything to do with custom CSS being put on pages or theme plugins being loaded?
Anybody know what could be the reasoning behind this or had similar experiences with this?

Thanks
William

Nope I am a admin and the toggle setting is on. So all the options should be there. I can use the export and configuration options but look and feel is gone..

HI William Fleming,

Try this code, keep this code in your jsp page.
ThemeDisplay themeDisplay= (ThemeDisplay)request.getAttribute(WebKeys.THEME_DISPLAY);
PortletDisplay portletDisplay= themeDisplay.getPortletDisplay();
portletDisplay.setShowPortletCssIcon(true);


Thanks & Regards

Do you have staging enabled?

It's also possible that the option has been removed if the velocity templates have been changed.

Staging is enbaled on one of our sites...? We removed the 7 cogs template that we edited and used and still the look and feel option is gone..

Any other reason that this could be gone?

Thanks

I have resolve this problem in portal.properties:


Saves some 50Kb on every page but portlet look-feel modification is not possible for all (including (Omni)Admin)

## Portlet CSS Portlet
# Set this to true to enable the ability to modify portlet CSS at runtime
# via the Look and Feel icon. Disabling it can speed up performance.
portlet.css.enabled=false
#
# Set this to false if the system does not use allow users to modify the
# look and feel.
#
look.and.feel.modifiable=true

I'll try that, but it's recommended to add changes in portal-ext.properties in order to override the properties in portal.properties, have you tried it that way?

I confirm that having "portlet.css.enabled=false" in portal-ext.properties disables the portlet Look&Feel menu item. :-)
