A Plone utility for inspecting and manipulating context portlet assignments

Project description

collective.fgrcon.portletadmin allows to get an overwiew of all portlet assignments within a Plone site
or subtree thereof. Furthermore it offers links for editing, moving or deleting any individual portlet.

Please use it at your own risk - backup before usage. It was developed for Plone 5.1.


The addon provides a view: @@portlet-admin which can be appended to site root or any subfolder of the site.

  • it lists all portlet assignments on all containers within the selected range recursively
  • for each listed container it provides a link to view the container/page
  • for each existing portlet manager in the container it lists all assigned portlets
  • for each portlet listed there is:
    • a link to edit the portlet directly
    • a link to remove (delete) the portlet
    • an option to move the portlet assignment to a different portlet manager within the same or a different container. (when selecting a different target container the available portlet managers will be fetched via an AJAX call.)
