Simple Attachments for Plone

Project description


Several Plone products have a need to handle simple attachments: content types that do not have a workflow of their own but will reuse the permissions on their container. SimpleAttachment implements simple file and image attachment types that can serve this need.

SimpleAttachment is released under the GNU General Public Licence, version 2. Please see for more details.


These types were taken from the RichDocument product, which now uses our types.


5.0.0 (2016-02-24)

  • Show link to Image Cropping Editor if is available. [maurits]

  • Improved compatibility and view on Plone 4.3. Only 4.3 is really supported now, though 4.2 should be fine still. [ptillemans, maurits]

4.4 (2015-12-15)

  • Updated Plone version into buildout extends configurarion [macagua]

  • Added spanish translations [macagua]

  • fix import step dependencies [kiorky]

  • fix icon_expr for portal types [petschki]

  • moved to github [petschki]

  • added italian translations [cekk]

4.3 (2012-01-24)

  • fixed normalizer for file/image upload with umlauts in filename in non english plone setup

  • added tests for this issue [petschki]

4.2 (2011-10-20)

  • Allow index_html to work for attachments that have not yet been migrated to blobs [stefan, ggozad]

4.1 (2011-10-19)

  • Added a view to provide filename normalizations since PloneTool’s normalizeString does not do it any more. [ggozad, stefan]

  • Schema extend from p.a.blobs extension fields. Add an index_html to FileAttachment to fix partial downloads. [ggozad, stefan]

  • include CMFCore permissions.zcml to make Plone 4.1 happy [jensens, 2011-10-06]

  • Add upgrade step to run blob_migration through generic setup. [saily]

4.0 (2011-10-06)

  • Added ImageAttachment and FileAttachment blob content migrators and migration view (@@simple-attachment-migration) [petschki]

  • Removed transform cache from file attachment, but leave cache invalidation in place. Reducing the size of the Data.fs is important. [hannosch]

  • Removed the SimpleAttachment spelling of the GenericSetup profile. Use profile-Products.SimpleAttachment:default instead. [hannosch]

  • Removed the CachingFileField and relevant FileAttachments patches. We do not want to store annotations any longer. [ggozad]

  • Use blob fields for FileAttachment and ImageAttachment [ggozad]

3.8 (2011-08-11)

  • Added Dutch translations [jladage]

3.7 (2010-12-27)

  • Fixed images and attachments in widgetmanagers were displayed in random order because default catalog query (implemented in 3.4) does not sort on ‘getObjPositionInParent’ by default. [saily]

3.6 (2010-07-29)

3.5 (2010-05-18)

  • readded old profile name for backward compatibility. Both profiles exist now. Please use default. [do3cc]

3.4 (2010-04-28)

  • fix attachments not being shown from migrated sites since getFolderContents didn’t work correctly. [vangheem]

  • change profile name to default like normal products should [vangheem]

3.3 (2010-04-21)

  • have import step handle kupu and tiny mce and not rely on kupu being there since it’s not the default in Plone 4 [vangheem]

3.2 (2010-04-21)

  • registerType needs PROJECTNAME as second parameter [toutpt]

  • tabindex needs to be imported for Plone 4 [vangheem]

  • fixed reference to get tool for Plone 4 [vangheem]

3.1 (2010-02-09)
