Hi,

I am developing my first app using liferay.

Requirement : Header,body,footer.

Header will have dropdowns. And on click of each menu item it should open a page.


Should the header be designed using themes or somelayout.

Then where should the menu code be written so that on click of a menu time a portlet is opened.

Should these be in a portlet?

What should be the approach

Hi Mrinal,

If your header should be common for all pages/windows then you should write code into Theme and apply that in your application.

About the portlet to be opened on click of any menu item you manage it through pages which contains portlets configured inside it. Only thing is that your theme development should be in a way that menu should appear as drop down as per your requirement.

Best Regards,
Chirag Patadia.

Yes you can achieve your requirement by creating theme if you have good knowledge of velocity scripting language.
When you create sample theme in liferay it will create many .vm files and in that there is one file called navigation.vm will be there.
So you can modify that file as per your requirement and put logic over there.
For creating new theme, you can see This Article
