What are ALL the steps to show custom object tabs in Customer Portal? Some steps which I have tried are:

  1. Checked the Available for Customer Portal checkbox in the Custom Object Definition Detail page.
  2. Tried to edit the profile to give read access to the object, but the checkbox can't be checked, as shown:
    Editing Custom Object Permissions in High Volume Customer Portal Profile

    Please tell me all the steps required. I am using High Volume Customer Portal Profile, on Salesforce Developer Edition.

Was it that you can't edit standard profiles - only custom ones? – Adam Torman Nov 30 '12 at 0:22
Yes @AdamTorman, you can't edit standard profiles; you can only edit custom profiles. – Suman Krishna Saha Dec 3 '12 at 6:20

You need to clone High Volume Customer Portal profile, and then you can grant permission for that object. You can't edit a Standard Profile.
