Post Update Checklist
1. Check alert preferences.
2. Verify portal pages are working and look as expected.
3. If image island links do not work or subsequent tabs on a tabbed island are not clickable, clear the browser cache.
4. Update custom toolbar. See article for more information.
5. Update custom theme. See article for more information.
Note: For portals that have a color or image set for all portal pages through the theme, individual page preferences will NOT override this setting. To remove this setting in order to utilize the new portal feature, please see this article.
6. Make sure the Application Root is correct in the Portal Framework Settings. The new image background uses a direct http path to the file and uses the Application Root in order to generate that path at the time it's created.
