I've two web content structures (foo and bar) in Liferay 7.0 and I want to store the web contents inside webcontents folders (webcontents/foo and webcontents/bar). I added two asset publishers, one for each structure, and I also allow the user to create new webcontents through the asset publisher plus '+' icon. However, they are created in the web content root folder (webcontents/). There is any way to dynamicaly save the webcontent that are created through the '+' icon in the asset publisher to a specific folder (based on the template itself, tags, or any other field)?

I used a "ModelListener" for this exact scenario.

If you extend Liferays BaseModelListener you can use the onBeforeCreate() Method for example. First check the ddmStructure of the current journalArticle and get or create your Folder. Now set the Folder ID for your journalArticle and your done!

Using the Asset Publisher – Liferay Help Center, By default, the Asset Publisher portlet is scoped to the site of the After you've added a scope, a new Select button appears under the Asset Entries heading. Wiki Page; Document; Web Content Folder. To use this feature, add or edit a web content article that the Asset Publisher should display. Before clicking Publish, click on Abstracts, flag Small Image, and upload an image. Then click Publish. Once your web content article appears in the Asset Publisher’s list, clicking the small image takes you to the full article.

I don't think that this can be achieved without customization.

I'd create a service wrapper to determine the Folder e.g. by the Structure's name.

The Media Gallery publishes your media files in a simple gallery-like style. It shows a large thumbnail of each media file, lets the user download files, and has slideshow capabilities.

Posting the code as solution suggested by @Viergelenker

public class ArticleSetListenerPortlet extends BaseModelListener<JournalArticle> {

    private static final Log LOGGER = LogFactoryUtil.getLog(ArticleSetListenerPortlet.class);

    public void onBeforeCreate(JournalArticle model) throws ModelListenerException {
            String structureName = model.getDDMStructure().getName(Locale.US);
            long groupId = xxxxx;
            List<JournalFolder> journalFolders = JournalFolderLocalServiceUtil.getFolders(groupId);
            for(JournalFolder folder : journalFolders) {

                if("Foo".equals(folder.getName())) {
              "Set folder as Foo");

Add two folders to this new folder: entry and guestbook. Create a new file called full_content.jsp in the /asset/guestbook folder. This JSP displays a guestbook asset’s full content. Add the following code to this file:

Admin displays the Web Content somewhere on the site (in the given example, within an Asset Publisher). Admin would like this Web Content to be updated, but not immediately - therefore schedules it by a Display Date set to a future time. By pressing the Publish button, a new version of the Web Content is created.

  • It would be nice to explain a bit and add some relevant code, if the link becomes unavailable.
  • the link is the official documentation. the answer can be without code, saying "you need to perform a customization". In LR 6.2 it would be called Hook, in 7.0 we have a service wrapper. Is an overwrite of LR default behavior. I will keep this question open in order to see any other opinion regarding configurations.
  • Thanks for your addition! Just one minor improvement to hopefully reduce runtime: JournalFolder folder = JournalFolderLocalServiceUtil.fetchFolder( groupId, title ); Not sure about the implementation, but this should do a database query and you won't need a for-loop :)
  • I understand. But in my case, I do have several folders so I need the for :)
