I saw that Jim Tittsler has helped you to create a new version of the template in question and he has adapted it to your needs. Hopefully this has helped you. I wanted to also point out to you that there are other ways to create what we call an "institutional portal". The beginning shell of a MU OER portal, based on a template that has been used to create portals for a number of institutions, is already available: MU OER. I thought you might like to see this as an option.
Let me know if you'd like more information about how to customize this version to your needs.
