Makes it possible to flag items as 'special'.

Project Description


collective.flag is a simple package that adds an option of marking special objects in a Plone site — flagging them. An additional field added to the Settings schemata can be used to differentiate regular documents from the special ones. Possible use-cases:

  • Put items to the frontpage. Usually not every most recent item should go to the frontpage, but those having a special meaning;
  • Allow to search for items that are special when building a Collection.


Rename the field’s title

There is not easy way of renaming field’s title using a controlpanel or something like that. What you can do instead — translate the title using standard mechanisms of Plone.

The recommended solution is to override the translation for the label_flaggedobject_title msgid in the collective.flag domain. Read more about how to do this in Plone 3.x or later here — i18n, locales and Plone 3.0.
