Thank you Tim for using my article in your project.

If you want to get more details about the PageBuilder theme, please check the following reference:

I will also publish another article specific for removing the "Sign Up" and "Edit My Profile" options, and displaying the user's name.

Re: Understanding the WebSphere Portal 7.0 "PageBuilder2" Theme Customization

I have used your article, as well as some other information from both IBM's website and the Exceptional Web Experience Conference I attended to get this working, and it works great! I do have some more "advanced" theme enhancements I would like to make that I can't seem to find information on. For instance, all users of our site are pre-registered by us, so we would like to remove the "Sign Up" and "Edit My Profile" options, and simply display the user's name. I found in a theme JSON file where I can completely remove the name, but I want to keep the name and simply make it static. Where can I find more information on more advanced theme enhancements like this?
