mojoPortal is a robust and flexible CMS (content management system), and like the old Timex commercial, “takes a licking and keeps on ticking”. This is better for your users, in that they’ll seldom see an actual error message, but when you’re trying to troubleshoot something complex, or involving a third-party plugin or implementation, this can create some frustration. That’s when it’s time to start checking the System Log feature that’s built into mojoPortal.Learn More

One of the coolest features to be added to mojoPortal recently (as of 188.8.131.52) is the inline editing feature. It’s clean, simple and easy, but it can be slightly confusing at first. Let’s review how the new inline editing feature works, and what to watch for.
One of the few “gotchas” of using the inline editing feature is how to save real-time updates, without triggering the content approval process (even if it’s not turned on for that page or site). Log into your mojoPortal site as an administrator, and navigate to a page where you’d like to test the inline editing function of your HTML feature. Look at the bottom of the page; do you see “Work in progress”, or “Live Content” on your administration bar? If you see “Work in progress”, it’ll automatically trigger a content approval process, even though you’re an administrator on the page.Learn More

Recently on the mojoPortal user forums, the question was asked “How can I provide category-specific feeds from my blog?” This can be extremely relevant in the case of providing targeted topics to various areas of your site, or even allowing you to filter feeds to a specific author if you use a shared blog, or have a number of guest contributors. Joe Davis of i7Media offered an easy-to-follow solution – we’ll outline it here today.
There’s two main parts to this; locating the feed URL, and adding it to your Feed Manager instance. First, let’s find that category-specific feed. Navigate to your blog instance, and click the category of the blog you wish to provide as a feed. From the posts page, copy the link URL from the RSS icon. If you don’t see an icon, you may need to go into your blog settings, and activate the feed link.Learn More

mojoPortal has a great built-in newsletter function, but there are times you may prefer to use a third-party service with more advanced features, such as Constant Contact or MailChimp. At these times, it’s helpful to be able to export your newsletter subscriber list quickly and efficiently. Luckily, mojoPortal makes that a painless process.
Log into your mojoPortal instance, and access the Administration section. In order to properly follow along, you’ll need to have already set up a newsletter in mojoPortal, and have at least one subscriber – even if it’s just you!Learn More

When you have a customer who wishes to control access to content, it’s best to sort out the most extensible and supportable way of doing so. Thankfully, mojoPortal provides an easy solution to allow content access control.
Initially, the customer wanted to be able to simply issue a single user name and password to provide content access; while this might be initially easier to manage, it’s a huge security and data capture leak. Here’s why:Learn More
