Before you begin
If you are deploying on WebSphere Portal 220.127.116.11, this assumes you have deployed the fast theme, as described in this wiki article
About this task
By design, the default themes for Portal 18.104.22.168 and Portal 8.0 do not load Dojo in view mode. This helps to render the theme faster. Because the Connections portlets depend on different capabilities, you must use a profile that includes the Dojo capabilities. For the portal default theme you can do that by assigning the "Full" profile. However, that profile includes more capabilities than the portlets need. In order to create a highly optimized setup, the rest of this article describes which dependencies the portlets have and how you can add them to your custom theme profile.
If you do not add these modules to your theme profile used for the pages containing the IBM Connections portlets, you can still deploy and configure the Connections portlets on a Portal 7 server, but some features will not work as expected. You will not be able to deploy and configure the Connections portlets on a Portal 8 server. An error will warn you that the modules are missing.

- Follow the steps in this article to add the following modules to the default theme profile (profile_deferred.json):
if you are using a custom profile, add the modules to that profile.
- Stop and restart the Portal server.
- To specify a theme profile at the page level you can override the default theme. For example, if the theme is using the profile_deferred.json profile, you can specify a custom profile for specific portal pages. Follow the steps for Setting a profile override on a page.
