Importing a Portal configuration from an existing Portal site is one of several ways available to create a new Portal project. It is also a recommended practice since the new and updated configuration will overwrite the original Portal configuration of the Portal site where the deployment takes place; in this way, part of the default original configuration can be lost.
In this section, you will be guided to execute the following tasks:
Create a connection to the Portal server
Import a WebSphere Portal Server V5.1 configuration
Modify the Layout navigation by creating additional labels, pages, etc.
Modify the Layout content areas by adding new columns and a portlet to a page
Change the page look and feel to use a different theme
