Known Issues

The following is a list of MyQueensU issues that are known to us. Some of these issue are things that ITServices can work towards resolving; others have been reported to Liferay and are awaiting a response from them.

Open Issues






Users who logged in to the new portal prior to March 22 (i.e. when it was in beta release) may have added apps to their Home page that are now generating the following error message: "This portlet has been undeployed. Please redeploy it or remove it from the page." This error message may be received for the following apps: Email, RSS, and Weather.

These applications were updated by ITServices to address the performance issues experienced in January 2011.

To fix the problem, delete the app from the page and then re-add the application.

(Note: The portal does not currently offer a weather app.)


Users who have Shared Folders may not be able to get their Email if they are using Internet Explorer.

ITServices is investigating.

Email is working properly in Mozilla Firefox. Or, users can access their mail using webmail instead of the portal.


When you add an app to the Home page, the Events Calendar loses its formatting in IE8.

ITServices is investigating.

Formatting can be restored by refreshing your browser screen, or, you can Change Calendar Options and select the calendar you wish to display.


When editing the RSS feeds on the Home page, certain characters will cause the name of the RSS feed to truncate upon saving.

We have reported the issue to Liferay and are awaiting a resolution.


November 2010

After a significant number of apps have been added to a page, they can no longer be dragged and dropped to a new location on the page.

We have reported the issue to Liferay and are awaiting a resolution.

Delete the app, and then re-add it to the page, dragging it immediately to your preferred location. Note that if you have added any custom content to the app (e.g. My Bookmarks), those customizations will be lost when the Application is deleted.

Summer 2010

When you mouseover the Properties icon ("..."), it does not display a descriptive tag.

This has been reported to Liferay.
