Over a period of 5 years of my experience with vtiger, I have noticed that, since its inception one of the most sparingly used modules of vtiger has been the customer portal module. The complexity involved in its understanding of the setup or just the novelty of using it, the customer portal application has always eluded people I have thought. Hence I wanted to demystify the customer portal.

During the process of working with vtiger and mining the forums, I have come across various errors or issues that people face in getting the Customer Portal set up straight. Must confess that  I have never been able to regularly contribute to the forums due to my other priorities.

Enable any standard or custom module from vtiger5.4 for the external world as a Portal. Have your own Sales Portal, Employee Portal and vendor Portals.
