the portal is displayed only for members of group "Portal". Hence, in your Menuitem declaration, you must specify the portal group as below :


In general, the way to add items to your portal is to modify rules, menus, and access rights in the group portal. Just play with it.

Hint : for discussion groups to be displayed, you just have to set them public.

In fact, there is 2 portals : customer portal and public portal. The portal you see when you log out is the public portal. If you want to see your menu there syou should had it to group "portal.group_anonymous"
