1   Background

The portlets located in a folder are by default visible in all sub-folders. It means that the amount of portlets tends to increase as one goes deeper into the site structure.

It can sometimes be useful to control the visibility of the portlets located in the parent folders.

-------------------------               -------------------------
disable_override: YES                   disable_override: NO


Portlet B in /workspaces/members/user
in SLOT1
-------------------------------------
slot_override: YES
