module providing a blog view for plone.

Project description


This package contains a blog-like view. It allows you to use all Archtypes based content to be viewed as blog entries, as long as they follow the specs of bda.contentproxy.

If commenting is allowed on an object, the comments are displayed as well. The view provides commenting controls for the displayed objects directly.

To make the blogview work, you have to provide an IBlogItemProvider implementing object.


from zope.interface import implements
from zope.component import getMultiAdapter

from Acquisition import Explicit

from Products.CMFPlone.utils import getToolByName

from bda.blogview.interfaces import IBlogItemProvider
from bda.blogview.interfaces import IBlogItemIterator
from bda.blogview.atiterator import ATBlogItemQuery

class BlogItemProvider(Explicit):


    def __init__(self, context, request):
        self.context = context
        self.request = request

    def items(self):
        putils = getToolByName(self.context.context, 'plone_utils')
        query = ATBlogItemQuery({
            'portal_type': putils.getUserFriendlyTypes(),
            'sort_on': 'modified',
            'sort_order': 'reverse',
        iterator = getMultiAdapter((self.context, query), IBlogItemIterator)
        return [i for i in iterator]

You have to register this implementation as follows:



  • plone 3

  • cornerstone.ui.core

  • cornerstone.ui.result

  • bda.contentproxy


  1. Make the dependent eggs available in your instance,

  2. Import extension profiles in your plone instance.



  • GNU General Public Licence 2.0 or later
