BaseTextExportImportProcessor.validateLayoutReferences method does not take into account the possibility of friendly URLs for portlets



      The BaseTextExportImportProcessor.validateLayoutReferences method fails to take into account that a URL might involve a friendly URL to a portlet (see https://dev.liferay.com/develop/tutorials/-/knowledge_base/6-1/adding-friendly-url-mapping-to-the-portlet).

      If you try to publish a web content article with a link consisting of a friendly URL to a portlet, the BaseTextExportImportProcessor.validateLayoutReferences method will parse the URL incorrectly, and ultimately, a NoSuchLayoutException will be thrown, preventing the article from being added.

      Steps to Reproduce

      1. Start up Liferay on a fresh database and log in as the admin user.
      2. Navigate to Liferay > Content > Web Content > + (Add Button) > Basic Web Content.
      3. Give it a title (it doesn't matter what the title is).
      4. Switch the "Content" field to Code view.
      5. Paste the following HTML into the "Content" field:
        <p><span><a href="http://localhost:8080/web/guest/home/-/testportlet">text</a></span></p>

        Note: Although we have not created a portlet with the friendly URL testportlet, this doesn't matter. The validator is only supposed to validate the URL to the page; it should not validate whether or not the full URL points to an existing portlet

      6. Click on the Submit button

      Expected result: The web content article is successfully added with no errors.
      Actual result: An error appears in the UI: "The content references a missing page." The web content article is not added.
