today I'm going live with a corporate client, replacing their former proprietary platfom (Docent) with .LRN.
Only at the very last moment I discovered that a few PC running IE6 with a screen resolution of 800x600 have a visualization problem with the user portal page.
The problem depends on the dotlrn-lorsm portlet, that doesn't fit nicely on the standard two columns Zen layout. As a quick workaround I dropped a column reducing the size of the portlet, so somehow bypassing the problem.
I then tried to reconfigure the user portal template choosing the Zen Thin-Thick layout, willing to move the dotlrn-lorsm portlet to the thick side, but surprisingly (to me) the portlet doesn't appear in any page nor between the unused portlets.
On the contrary the portlet is present if I try to reconfigure a single user portal page, but I dont't want to reconfigure manually all of them!
Exploring the datamodel I found that the section of the portal_element_map table corresponding to the user portal template doesn't contain the dotlrn-lorsm datasource.
I searched a way to add the missing portlet via UI, but didn't find any.
What should I do? Is it safe inserting the missing row to the portal_element_map table? Why is it missing?
