Use style sheets to support right-to-left languages

Updated on March 28, 2008

 This presentation is part of the Portals Overview Self-Study Course.


You are required to display the portal in a right-to-left format, such as supporting the correct presentation of right-to-left languages like Hebrew. 

To accomplish this, there are a number of out of the box style sheets which you can utilized to modify the portal layout.

The steps to implement this requirement are:

  1. Copy or create a new Rule-PortalSkin rule and append "_rtl" to the name so that you know the purpose for the new PortalSkin rule.
  2. Update all of the fields in the "Styles" tab of the PortalSkin rule to include the desired style sheets that end in "_rtl".
  3. Create a new Rule-Portal rule with the new Rule-PortalSkin record (out of the box Portal rules are in locked RuleSets and should be copied into the clients RuleSets).
  4. Using the tools on the Developer’s portal, test the updated portal rule.
  5. Review the portal for any display issues.
