      Description

      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.

          I have implemented a patch for adding the sharing Structure/Templates across comunities.

          That patch adds the posibility to access these structures/templates through the shortcuts.

          There are the sources for sharing structures/templates across different comunities. (for Liferay 4.3.3)

          Hey Vasile,

          Thanks for posting it, since it may be very useful for other people.

          We will not be able to apply it to our code since we were already planning to implement that same feature for v 5.0 in a very different way. Basically we plan to allow for a global scope (or several global scopes) that can hold not only structures and templates but also other types of entities. Any entity placed in this scope will be available to all of the existing communities and organizations.

          This has already been implemented in Liferay 6.0 and it's called "Sites Templates"
          Thanks for your feedback!
