Update the theme profile for the Connections portlets to functions properly.
Before you begin
You must be using IBM Connections Portlets for IBM WebSphere Portal 184.108.40.206 refresh to use this feature.
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 use Dojo capabilities, you must update the default theme profile for the server you are using. If you do not, the Connections portlets will not work.
If you do not deploy these modules, 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.
