I have no choice but to use v13 as a production server now. There are too many things wrong with v12 that prevented me from switching. The user interface in v13 is a huge improvement and allows me to now get away from v10 and v11.
The problem I have is how to setup Customer Portals now. Since v13 takes away webforms, I will need to find a 3rd party solution to accomplish this.
I cannot afford to use the standard desk because there is a danger of me missing some minor permission and allowing customers access to my core system. Updates also frequently have unexpected consequences, so this is not an option.
Most importantly, being forced to use the “desk” interface takes away all of the custom html, css,etc. that was available to customize the portal to the business needs. I, for one, am a fan of customer portals and am looking for alternatives.
I would prefer a solution that does not come with a monthly subscription, but will consider all possibilities.
I also removed desk access from the customer role and then added the routes I wanted to give the customers access to inside of a menu. However, I am struggling with how to have the customer land on a “landing page” of sorts. Were you able to accomplish that?
Hmm… by the looks of it, you are using v13 beta13 and not the production release of v13. In the beta versions there are no icons on the sidebar. On the actual production release each of the sidebar links also has a new style icon next to each name.
Have you tried this on the production release yet?
As my “ERPNext Experience” started just a few months ago based on the first v13-beta-1, I have not a clear understanding on what the customer portal has been “before”, but my understanding (I just have upgraded my dev-instance to the v13-release version) is, that we still have the customer portal as shown in the screenshot from @Monolithon, the same as it has been there within the beta-branches.
Regarding the other question: What we have right now within “/app/portal-settings”, is what we call “Customer Portal”, right? Does anyone know, if that will be still there, or will it be completely replaced by the regular desk-UI in combination with “DocType Layout”?
Yeah, but I am worried that I would spend a few days on getting everything setup for a new portal, get it approved by the users, and then launch it in a few weeks only to find that a point version update a few days later wipes it out again. Would hate to dig in deep and fix it only to have it wiped out.
Okay… So my guess is that nobody has transitioned a previous version with a customer and vendor portal to v13 yet. Or if they did they are still trying to get it working and do not have time to add their experiences back to the forum yet.
