Adjusting text on the Welcome screen for a portal

The welcome page on most any portal contains a “copy” or instance of the vertically oriented box on the right side of the screen that contains information about the transportation company / service provider.  The instructions below will allow you to change the information that appears at the top of that box (the header) as well as the information that is inside the box (the body). This can be used to shift the focus of the portal away from the transportation company and over to the client account - further increasing the clients loyalty to your company and their use of this portal.

Essentially, this is a two step process:
    1) Create 2 new Custom Tokens
    2) Use a PGH command to force replacement of Tokens

Creating new Tokens

A:
Open the Resutil pages of your web reservation site.
Select Token Configuration from the options on the Favorites Tab.
Select the button on the page labeled: “Add new token”
In the Token Field enter:  WELCOMER_HEADER_GROUPWEBID   (Replace GROUPWEBID with the Exported Group ID for your profile: Ex:  WELCOMER_HEADER_WIDGETCO )
In the Description:  Alternate header for WIDGETCO portal
In the String field:  Type your short alternate text header. (Ex:  About Widget Company Manufacturing)
Click the Update Button.

B:
Select the button on the page labeled: “Add new token”
In the Token Field enter:  WELCOMER_BODY_GROUPWEBID   (Replace GROUPWEBID with the Exported Group ID for your profile: Ex:  WELCOMER_BODY_WIDGETCO )
In the Description:  Alternate body text for WIDGETCO portal
In the String field:  Type your replacement text, that you want to have appear in the vertical box. The more text you enter, the taller the box will become.
(Ex:  Widget Company Manufacturing has been in business since for nearly 2 centuries!  We have been providing the world with the best widgets available, ensuring that every detail is attended to so that only the best widgets ever reach you.

You can follow the links on this page to reserve your transportation. All transportation will be provided by %COMPANY%.  You will be treated with the same care and attention to detail that you have dedicated to the manufacturing of widgets over the last 200 years.)
Click the Update Button.

Force the override of the tokens for the new group

Open the Resutil pages of your web reservation site.
Select the Group Configuration option on the Favorites Tab.
Select from the drop list, the name of the portal to be edited (ex: Widget Company Manufacturing)
Locate and select the Options Tab
Insert the following string:
  PGH=WELCOMER_HEADER:%WELCOMER_HEADER_WIDGETCO%,PGH=WELCOMER_BODY:%WELCOMER_BODY_WIDGETCO%,
Click the Update Button.

(NOTE:  in the string above, there is a colon ( : ) before the leading % symbols. There is a comma ( , ) after the closing % symbols.
The strings above are examples,  WIDGETCO would be replaced with the names used in the custom tokens created in steps A and B above.)

Reload your group portal and view the result. If needed, go back into your 2 custom tokens and revise the text, line breaks
, etc until you have it looking the way you want.
