Views for Products.Collage that display content with images from collective.contentleadimage

Project description


This product allows the display of content with lead images within a Collage environment, in a Plone site.

The typical Summary view for a Folder or a Collection only displays images for News Items, the only default type that images can be assigned to. This package uses the existing ‘Folder lead-image view’ provided by collective.contentleadimage and displays the content within a Collage. Both Folders and Collections (Topics) can have this new Collage view applied to them.


Install this product using Buildout, or a similar method, and then start up your Plone instance. The ZCML configuration will automatically get picked up and register these additional views for your Collage content.

You should install collective.contentleadimage on your site in order for these Collage views to be useful. Assigning some lead images to content will also be necessary use these views to their potential.

Setting the layout

  1. Create a Collage.
  2. Add rows and/or columns accordingly to said Collage.
  3. Add a Folder or Collection to your Collage. This can be either actual content or an alias.
  4. In the Compose page for the Collage, locate the Layout link for the content you just added. Click this.
  5. Select Summary (lead images) and your new layout will appear.
  6. Assign lead images to content to have them appear in this layout.
