portlets are not transparent in the components Help system

    Details

      Description

      when a portlet has replaced the current component widget the under lying Help that may exist is nullified.
      Also when Help is shown for a portlet is uses Portlet names for the help that has no relationship to the actual UI as the user sees it.
      This counter intuitive and cause confusion to a User.

      I looked and it was confusing and not intuitive on the help
      First question from a users point of view
      What is a Portal, as I search the page for something that says portal.
      So I am interested in help on the User Names
      I look at the list and see nothing that refers to User names.
      Again I look around the page to see anything label as User Login Portal.

      Now because I am familar with ofbiz I guessed the user Login Portal is the one for User Names.

      I have not run one of my apps that call party pages against this version.
      I expect i will have to modify. That does not make me happy camper with 50 apps to do that with.
