Display a nested Collage inside Collage

Project description


This package enables Collage to support nested Collage objects.

Additionally, two views (Collage layouts) are available:

  • Full: displays exactly the same as a Collage default view, including title, description, related items and, of course, the contents (rows and columns).

  • Content: displays only contents (rows and columns).

To allow Collage objects to be created inside columns we had to patch enabledType and enabledAlias methods in Products.Collage.browser.controlpanel.CollageSiteOptions to allow Collage content type to be inserted in a Column.

Additionally, a CSS resource is registered (just below the original collage.css) to display nested column widths correctly.


If you want to create new views (layouts) for nested collage objects base your class on the new NestedCollageView one, like this:

from collective.collage.browser.views import NestedCollageView

class MyNestedCollageView(NestedCollageView):
    """ A custom view for a nested collage """

Known issues

Ideally Products.Collage.config.COLLAGE_TYPES should be patched however collage.vocabularies.CollageUserFriendlyTypes doesn’t seem to notice the change, so Collage control panel doesn’t display Collage as an allowed portal type. Patches are applied to enabledAlias and enabledType instead.
