I created a private community, but now realize it needs to be public. Is there any way to change it from private to public? Either in portal-ext.properties or in control panel? Have yet to figure it out.

thanks

Samuel: Longtime no hear. Yes that is the way to do that. But, I did not state my problem clearly :-( I meant the pages are setup as private and I don't see a way to change that.

thanks for the reply and good to hear from you.

Not sure if this is possible but, perhaps you can try exporting your page as LAR and then importing them as public..

Ok if you're administrator you can try execute code using Liferay console in Control Panel:

You'd have to find your algorithm and API for updating or copying your layouts... (probably you can start with LayoutLocalServiceUtil):

Juan: I think the importing the lar will work. I just noticed on 'lcepatchers.org' latest patch fixes the export/import issue with permissions. I'm going to give it a try. Thanks for all your efforts.
