How to search for other Plumtree deployments

If you’d like to see what people are doing with Plumtree on the open internet, you can search Google using the allinurl: portal/server.pt syntax.

Bear in mind that Plumtree portal administrators can change both “portal” and “server.pt” to anything, but most do not choose (or do not know how) to change this. Really, it’s easy — just change the VirtualDirectoryPath and the HTTPEntryPoint in j_config.xml or n_config.xml.

  1. Nicely done! People have been complaining for a long time about ALUI URLs being cumbersome — the Helicon integration is brilliant. I like the design and the site’s nice and fast too.

  2. Go to the Brit Insurance public web site. It presents “friendly” URLs, is easily indexed by search engines, and can even be read by text-only browsers.

    You won’t be able to tell it is ALUI until you start looking at the source code.

    Behind the scenes is Helicon and an engine that creates Rewrite rules dynamically everytime you add a section.
