I am having fun messing around with Liferay but to be honest I don't find it very user friendly, so here are some Qn to date. I am posting them here because others may find the answers useful also.
1. Is there a tutorial somewhere? Might be worth posting to a blog. I didn't realise you had to use control panel to add your Wall.
2. Am trying to add friends - this is also not so obvious. At the moment I am opening members' public pages and clicking Add Friend button from there. Is there a quicker way? e.g. how do I search for all SL Team members?
3. Why do some member's public pages have the Add Friend button and others don't? Do members have to activate this? How do I do it for my page?
4. I log in at the start of the day, but it is forever expiring and logging me out. Is there a way of changing the expiry time for log-ins?
5. My blog seems to have the correct time associated with it, but my Wall posts do not. Why is that and how can I correct the Wall post timing?
6. At the bottom of this blog edit it says I can check a box to "Allow Trackbacks" and "Allow Pingbacks". What are these? They are ticked by default - should I allow them?
All answers gratefully received.
