Hi All..


I'm working in a dev environment (w/ no Internet access) with Portal running ArcGIS 10.2.2.   Everything is and has been running great.  Recently I've been trying to get the latest version of MapJournal (pulled from GitHub) working using the ArcGIS JS API 3.9.  Side note, I'm also running Briefing Book this way and using the ArcGIS JS Api 3.9 with no issues.  This is running on a Windows 2008 R2 server with IIS.


I've followed the instructions deploying the ArcGIS JS API noted here (it's the 3.8 instructions) 42138 - Install the JavaScript API for use with ArcGIS 10.2 for Server  and here - Deploy MapJournal on Portal - Esri/map-journal-storytelling-template-js · GitHub


Within IIS, I created a virtual directory within the Default Web Site called "apps" - and pointed it to the Program Files\ArcGIS\Portal\webapps\arcgis#home\webmap\templates location. The URL for Map Journal looks like:


When I browse to (before adding the MapJournal webapp into Portal) I get 3 horizontal blue bars that look as if they are trying to load something but never do.  I also tried - as mentioned hereHow can I deploy Map Journal Story map on my portal for arcgis 10.2.1?  same thing.


I thought this was by design and because I needed to deploy the Portal MapJournal web app, create a map..share, make web app, publish etc...but I get the same (3) horizontal blue bars.


The Firefox built in developer tools are showing many "Declaration Dropped" for a lot of CSS "stuff" and oddities that appear to be display issues within the browser.  It's not working in IE either.


I'm not a developer so CSS is foreign to me up until I deployed Briefing Book and started getting into the guts of this.  The messages in the Firefox developer tools seem related to an issue with properly rendering or loading the CSS...???  I'm able to access the ArcGIS JS API, CSS and CSS2 pages within a browser so I don't believe a problem with the way IIS is setup is causing this and since Briefing Book is working just fine using the ArcGIS API I deployed I don't believe it's an issue with the ArcGIS JS API config. please. Any takers? Thanks!
