Configuring Portlets, Themes, and Layout Templates¶
Access the Components UI in the Control Panel, by navigating to Configuration → Components. A table of installed portlets appears.
Select the tab of the component type to view: Portlets, Themes, or Layout Templates.
To configure a component, click its name or select Edit from its Actions button (). The component’s configuration screen appears and displays the component’s module ID and plugin ID, a checkbox for activating/deactivating the component, and user roles that can be configured for the component.
Activate or deactivate the component by checking or unchecking the Active checkbox, respectively.
To change a role’s permission for the component (e.g., a role’s Add to Page permission for a portlet), select the role’s Change button in the permissions table. This takes you to the Control Panel’s → Users → Roles screen, where you can change the role’s permissions for the component.
Congratulations! You can use the Components listing to examine and manage installed portlets, themes, and layout templates.
