Part 2. How to Edit Flow Theme Top Text Area

Tutorial about customizing Flow Plone Skin top left area with new content in Plone 3.

To fill the portlet with your content follow the link on the default portlet or find /welcome-portlet doсument. Replace this text with information you need:


Save the changes. Enjoy your new portlet look.
