Q: How do I load a movie or a video?
A: Your portal allows you to play your video or movie through YouTube. So you first have to load your movie on YouTube.
Then on the page on which you wish to play the movie: Add an application, under Content Management there is an option labelled Flash. Drag and drop the application onto your page. You will now be requested to configure the portlet. If you select configure and just save it as is you would have saved a demo liferay video. (in the url block). Replace the liefray url with the url of your own video on YouTube and save.
Q: In Liferay v5 there is no longer Journal Content. What do I select now?
A: Journal Content has been replaced with Web Content.
Q: Are there any differences between Journal Content and Web Content?

Q: Is there anyway I can remove/change the headings: Journal Content & Site Map?
A: Yes there is. On the top line of the journal box click on the paint palette, then untick the border to remove the heading otherwise replace the text " Journal Content" with your own text (just click on the words Journal content and the block will open for you to edit)..
Q: Am I able to add different fonts to my site or are the fonts available the only ones that can be used?

A: Copy the url address from your browser, then type the words 'back to the top' Highlight it and add a link. Paste the url in the link box and it will take you back to the top.
Q: During the trial on the portal I did something wrong and now the portal has a strange look. How do I fix it?
A:you have not broken the page - you have merely changed the skin that is why it looks different. Welcome > manage pages>look and Feel. Select a new theme. Some skins or themes allows you to automatically change the languag eof your portal. At the bottom of the page you will see a row of flags. When you click on a flag of your choice it automatically changes the language of your portal ( So the instructions eg Search, add page, navigate etc will all be in that new language now).
Q:I notice the width of the page of my web site is too large for some PC screens. Is there something to do to fix it?
A: This is not something you can 'fix'. You will occasionally see a message on some sites
Q: Can I change the background colour of my pages?
A:The background colour depends on the theme or the skin that you choose. However If you change the theme your layout is affected.
