i am trying to add new layout to Oracle UCM, by following the steps as mentioned in this link http://studentsatoracle.blogspot.com/2010/11/ucm-how-to-create-new-skin-and-layout.html ; and i faces the following issues:
when i want to change the user layout from existing oracle Trays to my NewTray the Oracle, Oracle2, Gray skins did not appear. also after selecting the NewTray as a layout, the left tree; which have Administration, Search, Browse Content, ...etc, is disappear.
how can i select a skin from the NewTray layout?
how can i show "appear" the ucm cs left tree?
One of the first things to make sure you've done after installing the component (after restarting the servers) is to publish the static and dynamic files. You can do this via the config applet or the admin actions page. This makes sure that your new skin & layout directories actually receive the files from the component.
i had tried the component on a UCM Windows VM and it works fine the new layouts appears in the user layouts option; i can select from them.
but i had tried to install the component on UCM Linux VM and enable it and the new layouts is created as a folders on the \\layouts path, but they didn't appear in the UCM CS user layouts; i cannot select them since they are hidden.
i had tried to add these configuration in the Administration --> Admin server --> General Configuration, but also not appear.
so i want to ask if there is an extra steps to do with this component in case it will be installed on Linux not Windows?
Sometimes you have to publish the weblayout files manually
Try going to the Administrations, Admin Actions page and selecting the Publish Dynamic layout files and Publish Static layout files under WebLayout Publishing
Thanks all for you response,
i had already tried publishing; [publish static, string, and dynamic files] and [publish schema configuration and data] , but same problem not appear.
also there is no full path in my component; all paths ar relative to the ucm installation directory. the component that i installed is the CreateLayoutAndSkin in the http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/indexes/samplecode/webcenter-content-samples-1352729.html ; . i didn't change anything in the component except the name and the id of the layouts in the createlayourandskin_resource.htm file and install the component.
these configuration i added them in Administration --> Admin server --> General Configuration:
but also no changes.
this works fine on Windows but for Linux the new layouts didn't appear i the user layouts.
the following is the createlayourandskin_resource.htm after modification
