I think this might be useful for someone, who try to make their portfolio
public viewable. 

We have uploaded some files to the matrix cell, and want these files and
portfolio public accessible. 

The file URL in the matrix cell is:


If you put that URL in the portfolio, then it requires readers to log into
system to view that file. 

However, we found out that we can always simplify the URL to 

Which is the file in the my workspace.  

If students make that file public viewable, then the portfolio is public

Some XSLT codes for this.

<xsl:for-each select="./wizardPage/attachments/attachment">	
      <xsl:variable name="Filename" select="./artifact/fileArtifact/uri"/>
<xsl:variable name="Filename1" select="
substring-after($Filename,'/content')) "/>
<xsl:value-of select="$Filename2"/>	

  BTW, thanks for Marc pointing this out for me.
