Liferay 5 interface (Admin)

Our IT team are putting together a ‘cookie cutter’ solution for rapid website deployments. During this process they are moving to the latest version of Liferay (Liferay version 5). I was privy to be invited to join a introduction training session on how to add/edit pages and content.

For those who are unfamiliar with Liferay, the CMS is powered by Java and basis itself on editable java ‘portlets’ by drop-n-drag methodology.

I can’t say I’m a fan of drop-n-drag when it comes to managing the UI, especially for Marketers or anyone who has little knowledge about the importance of UI design and consistentcy. I see this approach as a somewhat irresponsibly provactive unless very tight portlet lock-down is enforced.
