When you use the Inserted Page builder, you create the "inner" (inserted) page in the normal way, using either an Import Page builder or a simple Page builder.
You can add IBM® WebSphere® Portlet Factory controls to this page as you would to any other page.
In the "outer" page (the page that captures the inner page), you add a name to any convenient tag where you want to insert the inner page. This tag can be any container tag, such as a <TD>
tag, a <DIV>
tag, or even a <SPAN>
tag. You then create an Insert Page builder and select the outer page as the Page, and the named tag as the Control ID.
To complete the process, you specify the inner page as the Page Name item. This will insert everything that is inside the BODY
portion of the inner page inside the container-tag section of the outer page, including any activated controls.
Once a page is inserted in another page, information in the HEAD
tags of the page being inserted is no longer available. For example, a reference to an external style sheet will be lost once a page is inserted into another page.
tags within the HEAD
tags of an inserted page are moved to the body of the inserted page once it is inserted in another page.
