Difference in the display/rendering between two 7.4 portal systems

Hi everyone,

At this moment we are faced with a difference in the display/rendering between two 7.4 portal systems (see red area’s in screenshots). Both systems are green field installations.

At our LAB system with EP-BASIS 1000. and EP-RUNTIME 1000. the portal is rendered as follows:

Our development system DEV is based on EP-BASIS 1000. and EP-RUNTIME 1000. The portal is displayed as follows:

Both portal systems use the standard SAP Gold Reflection theme.

The expectation was that the DEV portal would have the same view as the LAB portal. Unfortunately, it appears that the DEV portal falls back to the older standard SAP Tradeshow theme when displaying (for example) the Portal Content Studio or the UWL. Different stylesheets (CSS) are loaded. There is no unified rendering and in our opinion this is not correct.

SCN provides much information about the various rendering problems that exists in the use of Internet Explorer in combination with the SAP Portal. However, it is unclear to us where to start with the analysis of this problem.

Answers / suggestions to the following questions will be highly appreciated:

  1. Is it correct that the portal by default should make use of UR when the SAP Gold Reflection theme is used?
  2. Is the difference of rendering caused by the difference in the versions of the EP BASIS / EP RUNTIME? (DEV portal has higher SP/patch level than LAB);
  3. How to investigate this issue further and finally solve it?

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards, Allan
