portals are a pain
I am using a template that came with FileMaker to maintain my database of proposals and users. The template, called Registration, has events and contacts where I have proposals and users. It is nice, it has some nice features. There is a button that allows you to register a contact to the current event. The information on contacts registered to the current event is displayed in a portal. This is my problem: I want to do exactly the same thing for samples as well as contacts. I want the original portal displaying contacts registered to the current event, and another portal displaying samples registered to the current event, with a new button that will register a sample to the current event. I have duplicated everything as best as I could, and I can register ten samples but the portal is always empty. If I view all the registered samples in a separate layout they display OK, but not when viewed in the portal. Has anyone else ever tried something like this with success?
