Makes `Products.CMFEditions`_ works with `Dexterity` content types.

Project Description


This package makes Products.CMFEditions works with Dexterity content types.

In general CMFEditions works ok with Dexterity. The only problem is the versions_history_form template: it does not show the older versions for Dexterity content items. Also, it may break if the custom content type does not use the default view auto-generated by Dexterity.

This package solve this problem by overriding versions_history_form.


The usual: add this package to the buildout and install the Generic Setup profile in the Plone Site.

Extension/customization points

To make the versions_history_form template work with Dexterity content types some views were created. These can be overriden to customize the way older versions of a content type are displayed:

  • @@download-version: Downloads an older version of a file stored in a plone.namedfile field.
  • @@content-core: Render only the content-core div of the default view of a content item.
  • @@version-view: Same as @@content-core but makes links to file downloads use the @@download-version view.
