url iview content area vs detailed navigation, Please help


I created a url iview with source "" and added to a role.

portal domain is:

so when that user with this particular role login into the portal: This iview is available in two locations:


Directly in detailed navigation

when the user clicks on the link from detailed navigation, a new window is opened (i set it to open in a new window in the properties).

in the address bar you see:


and the content of is displayed but with lot of java script errors.


The user can click the iview from the welcome iview which is shown in the homepage as soon as the user login(we implemented welcome iview for each role)

when he clicks

the url in the browser is <b>""</b>

and the application works fine.

so what made the difference?

Thank You

Hi Raj,

The problem is, two methods are not same at all.

Firt method, putting link into antoher iview with an LinkToURL UI, will directly opens the target url just as ordinary web sites. You are directed to the external URL without portal framework.

But in the second method, you're creating an URL Iview pointing to your target URL, which opens the target within portal framework.

So, they are not same. What can be done is to check the parameters of URL Iview.

And another solution is to create an HTML page within portal and point your DEtailed navigation to this HMTL page.

This page contains javascript code which directly opens a popup page which is targeted to your target URL.

This may work.
