What is a mini portal and why should I have one?
In 2012 Pro Bono Net released a new feature for LH3, the mini-portal. A mini portal page is a one page site with links to pages on your LawHelp site (and/or other sites) and with resources dynamically pulled from your site. This feature allows partners to highlight content tailored to a specific audience, issue or location, for example:
Information for users of a court self-help center.
Key self-help and referral resources for a particular county, for example in a disaster relief scenario.
Resources for a specific population, such as military members and veterans, domestic violence survivors or folks living with HIV or AIDS.
Mini-portals can also be used as a staging page for LawHelp Interactive forms, in which related instructions, FAQs and other materials can be presented alongside links to self-help forms or interviews. Mini-portals support multi-media content, content widgets, as well as links to pages on your statewide website or other webpages. This feature was made possible through a TIG to Atlanta Legal Aid Society. You can view three mini-portal sites created by GeorgiaLegalAid.org, they include:
