Add functionality to create custom items within the journal article drop-down menu

    Details

      Description

      Request
      To add the functionality for clients to implement their own custom items into the journal article drop-down menu.

      From existing documentation, this example makes use of a DLDisplayContextFactory extension point. However, there is no equivalent extension point within journal articles (aka web content).

      Through testing, a functioning custom item could be added to the menu by directly modifying the Liferay source code for JournalArticleActionDropdownItemsProvider, which is functionally equivalent to developing a marketplace override.
 It was achieved using this commit as a base reference.

      Business Need
      Extending the functionality of the drop-down menu would allow developers to create a more feature-rich experience for content authors, allowing users to do more within Liferay itself.
