Enabling the Creation of Regional PagesLocate this document in the navigation structure

Use

You use regionalization to display different content depending on the region of the logged on user, or to display pages in several languages.

So that authors can create Web Page Composer content for different regions or different languages, a system administrator needs to first enable regionalization. The decision to enable regionalization should be made before authors start creating pages to ensure that the pages can be regionalized. For more information, see Creating Regional Versions of Pages .

Procedure
  1. Go to Start of the navigation path System Administration Next navigation step System Configuration Next navigation step Runtime Settings Next navigation step Regional Settings End of the navigation path.

  2. If regionalization has not yet been enabled, select the Enable Regionalization checkbox.

Create New Regions

Create new regions to match the regions in your organization to enable authors to create region-specific content. Authors select the regions that you create from a dropdown list when creating regional pages.

Recommendation

If you are planning to create only language-specific pages, you do not need to create additional regions. Using the supplied Empty Region region in combination with the relevant languages is enough to enable the portal to differentiate between the different regional pages at runtime.

To create additional regions:

  1. In Regional Settings , in the List of Regions tab, choose Add .

    The New Region dialog box appears.

  2. Enter a name for the new region and choose OK .

    The new region is added to the list of regions.

Add additional regions as needed.

Define a Default Region and Language

When portal users access the published page, the default region profile is used if no regional pages match the profile of the user.

  1. In Regional Settings , in the Default Region Profile tab, from the Region dropdown list, select the region that you want to set as the default region, and then select a language from the Locale dropdown list.

  2. Choose Save .

Result

Regionalization is enabled. When portal users create new pages, a page group is created to contain all of the regional versions of the given page.

To disable regionalization, deselect the Enable Regionalization checkbox. This has no effect on existing content. Any regions that you created are maintained and existing page groups are not affected. Portal users will no longer be able to create new page groups, but will be able to create new regional pages within an existing page group. Published regional content is not affected.
