[CLOSED] Javascript - Identify page of a portal
Hey All,

I'm hoping this might be simple. I'm looking for a command to call the page or tab name of a portal via javascript.

I'm aware of "" to get the name of the panel. But I have a component that is in a banner so having the name of the panel won't work.

Using the browsers Developer Tools, inspect the tab and see if there is a unique class name.

If so, then use javascript or Jquery to get the elements contents

You might(?) need to have a reasonable understanding of DOM structure and its navigation. Look into "parent."
