We're sorry to see that your custom version of Portfolium on your school's website isn't working. If you have additional questions, please submit a ticket to our Support team.
Set Up Custom Portfolium
To set up your custom version of Portfolium on your school's website, please have your IT department do the following:
Create a CNAME record for "portfolios.YOURDOMAIN.edu" and point it to "cname.portfolium.com".
Depending on the TTL settings on your DNS, then open the URL "portfolios.YOURDOMAIN.edu" in your browser. Usually DNS updates work within 30 minutes, but may take up to 24 hours.
Create a hyperlink to "portfolios.YOURDOMAIN.edu" on your school's website.
To help troubleshoot what's going on, run the following command (these instructions are meant for Linux/OSX based systems):
host -t cname portfolios.YOURDOMAIN.edu
You should see something like:
portfolios.YOURDOMAIN.edu is an alias for cname.portfolium.com.
If the DNS configuration for the CNAME record was not properly configured, you may see an error message like this:
Host portfolios.calpoly.edu not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
Let's use CSU Cal Poly as an example:
host -t cname portfolios.calpoly.edu
portfolios.calpoly.edu is an alias for cname.portfolium.com.
