The “Portals” module allows users to create their own portal site if they have access to create one. The portal site can share contents from other portals on your main website. The created portals can also have their own content, and this uses any modules that are available on your main website. Portals can be created to a descending level of four sub categories for organizing your sub-portal sites.
When adding a portal site, all you need to do is click the “Add Portal” button on the top of your screen and fill out the following fields:
List Under – Select the portal to list the portal you are creating or you can list the portal on the root level.
Portal Title – Enter the name of the portal you are creating into this field.
