It would be quite usefull to add the ability to create communities based on templates which were either bundled with Liferay or user defined.
Description: As an extension to the Liferay Archive mechanism, it would be quite usefull to be able to pre-bundle community templates within Liferay such that at the enterprise level, the administrator could select from a list of templates listed during the Community creation stage. The templates could include default resources, certain default roles pre-assigned to those resources, such that it would be easy later to assign users to those roles. Instructor, Students, Teaching Assisant, etc...
The list might include something like these:
- Simple Private Single Page (Navigation left, Content right)
- Simple Public Single Page (Navigation left, Content right)
- Simple News (P1 - Public = Navigation left, Content right, P2 - Private = Journal, Doc Lib, Image Gal)
- Simple Course (P1 - Private = Navigation, Calendar, PXtoY - Instructor Area)
These would be pre-configured LAR files available from some pre-defined or configurable directory on the server, but should be user definable as well (user having enterprise admin privilages that is), such that new templates could be uploaded.
