      Multiple Portals Problem

      Post

      First of all, I apologize for the redundancy of the question as Ive searched through the forums and Ive found several examples of how to address this problem, one thats nearly identical, but its just not clicking for me.

      So the issue Im facing is that I have two portals on one layout page that are pulling data from the same table.  Im using one portal to display summary data in a list, where you would select the record of interest, the other portal would display the selected record in more detail.  In this instance Im building a wine cellar application and Id like the user to pick a 'review' from the list portal to display the full review/tasting notes in the other portal, which is in a tab, but doesn't have to be.

      For reference, here is the thread I found that discusses essentially the same process.  I couldn't get my head around the general concept and what its limitations would be, more importantly its implementation into my scheme was cloudy.
