I think the point, that is trying to get across is the same point that many
people have posted. Users want the ability to click on a link or button
inside of a portlet and have their info popup inside that portlet area, not
taking up the entire page or even opening up in a new window.

I hope that the point is a tad bit clearer. SO i guess the word to used in
his message was portlet instead of portal.

Allow the experts to provide the absolute guidance.  However, i am trying
to understand your question.

As i read your question, i conclude that you are "muddying the waters".
(this is just my small little opinion - and not meant to be derogatory in
any way.)

the meaning of a portal is "a perspective on information".  the term portal
origianted out of Merril Lynch.  Information is arranged to give a user
specific information for that individual's ROLE.  In other words, a
customer of a web site has different information needs than a supplier.
 Both of their perspectives and needs for information are different from
the plant manager.

i merely do not understand the chaining of flow of portals - this makes no
sense to me.  it may be mere semantics - but semantics are important - it
embodies how we communicate.

i understand the need to pipeline a set of events as the manner of Cocoon.
 I understand the need to create different screens and provide some order
to them.  i am trying to understand the need to create a flow of portals.

please do not let my inability to understand your question get in the way
of a quality answer.  but, a re-wording of the question would help me to
better understand your needs.

using the portal scheme always.  Like a news
site...when someone clicks on a link in a portal, I
would like that to bring up another portal within the
portal set.  Can someone please clarify this with
me...or atleast point me in the direction of a good

I have all of my portlets created...I just want to
create a flow/connection within them all.
