To enable this product in a buildout-based installation:

  1. Edit your buildout.cfg and add collective.behavior.localdiazo to the list of eggs to install:

    eggs =
  2. If you are using Plone 4.2.x you need to add the following also:

    ... = 1.1.1

After updating the configuration you need to run ‘’bin/buildout’’, which will take care of updating your system.


In Plone’s control panel go to ‘Dexterity Content Types’, select your content type, go to the ‘Behaviors’ tab and enable the ‘Local registry’ and ‘Local Diazo theme’ behaviors.

Add a new object; you will see a new field called ‘Theme’ and select a Diazo theme from the list.

Now when you access your container you will see the Diazo theme applied to it.


If you followed all the instructions and the theme is not aplied, make sure Diazo theming is enabled on ‘Theme settings’.
