Introduction

This portlet shows a content item as content in the portlet. It's LinguaPlone aware, and is initially created to provide a language-dependent address footer.

Compatibility

The product is compatible with Plone 3 and Plone 4.

Installing

Add collective.portlet.content to your buildout and re-run buildout. Install the product in your Plone site using the Plone Control Panel (prefs_install_products_form) or the ZMI's portal_quickinstaller.

Using

Go to @@manage-portlets. If the product was installed properly, you'll have the option to add a Content Portlet.

Next, select a content item to display. It can be any type of item. You can select which of the item's fields you want to display in the portlet's content area:

  • Title (either as a link to the content item or as plain text)
  • Description
  • Date
  • Body text
  • Image

When the content item doesn't have a selected field, it should work without errors, but you'd obviously not see the field in the portlet.

You can set these options separately:

  • portlet's title as shown in @@manage-portlets screen
  • portlet header title as rendered on page (use content's title or select custom)
  • hide portlet header altogether
  • conditionally show a portlet footer with a link to the content item (link text is configurable)
  • disable the portlet border
