An additional view for Plone folders, to improve management of repositories of files

Project description


The italian word modulistica means “documentation”, “downloadable forms”.

This product adds the following features to your Plone folders:

  • a new view (“Downloadable forms view”) to display files in the folder
  • a new field, where you can enter a set of column names, used in the view

This product has been designed for public administration offices, but can be used from any other company that needs to display a large amount of files that can be downloaded from visitors.

How to use the view

This view will simply show in a table all files and links in the folder, ignoring all other stuff.

Files are displayed in a two-column table.

Simple view, without related items

You can optionally use a new field of the folder called Columns titles to control the heading of the table. If you don’t provide a value for this field, no heading will be used. Please note that the field is only displayed when the view is applied to the folder


In facts the view also use Pages inside the folder, but for a special use case.

Pages are loaded, and the body content is inserted inside a wide table header row. This can be useful if you need to comment a subset of files.

Table with comments

You can use this feature for simple comment inside the table, or for provide a complex structure:

Table with (more) comments

You can find a lot of additional examples in the Modulistica section of the Chamber of Commerce of Ferrara.
