Set Your Portlet Preferences via Edit Defaults Mode

Preferences as set to enable pages to have the same behavior for all users. When a page is displayed - preferences are accessed in the database for the user/page combination.

To add preferences - Click the Edit Defaults icon in the upper right corner of the any marvelit Portlet. It is next to the i (help) icon in the upper right corner of the portlet. You need to set the preferences 1 time on every portlet on every page you build.
