Symptoms

If you have a portlet on a community page that makes use of IDK's IPortletRequest.getReturnURI(), you may find that the URL returned always points to the default community page.  The expected URL would point to the specific page within the community where the portlet resides.

 
For example, let's say there is a community named 'ReturnURI Community' (ID 205), containing two pages:  'First Page' (default) and 'Second Page'.  A portlet on 'Second Page' that invokes IPortletRequest.getReturnURI() will get the following URL returned:
 
http://myportal:7001/portal/server.pt/community/returnuri_community/205
Note that the URL above points to the community only, which results in the display of the default page.  The correct URL would include the page in the URL, like so:
 
http://myportal:7001/portal/server.pt/community/returnuri_community/205/second_page
