Pages With the Page Layout Type Web Content Are Missing After Upgrading to Liferay Portal 6.1 GA1 or Higher

In earlier versions of Liferay Portal 6.0 SP2 or lower, the Web Content page layout type allowed a page to display a single piece of web content. This page layout type has been deprecated starting in Liferay Portal 6.1.

After an upgrade the portal may not start correctly or these pages may be missing if the legacy portal property which defines this page type is not set.


  1. Shutdown the server

  2. Add the following portal property to the file:

    • layout.types=portlet,panel,embedded,article,url,link_to_layout

  3. Restart the server

  4. Verify the pages with the page type Web Content are now viewable
