Wrap any Plone portlet with geolocation or language negotiation.
The geoportlet works as a wrapper around the exiting portlet types.
When you select the “Geoportlet” type under “Manage portlets”, the add form lets you select from a database of countries and languages, and choose a portlet type. In the next screen, you’ll create the chosen portlet (if it requires user input).
The geoportlet toggles its availability based on IP address lookup and/or HTTP language accept strings. You can use it to segment the audience for a portlet into particular countries or language groups, e.g. China and Mandarin.
It uses the geolocation database provided by http://Software77.net.
Compatibility: Plone 4+.
Each geoportlet wraps the contained portlet assignment in an HTML <div> element with CSS-classes corresponding to the selected countries and/or languages. The format is geoportlet-<country> and geoportlet-<language> where the country is provided as the three-letter ISO 3166-1 alpha-3 country code and the language is provided as the two-letter ISO 639-1 language code:
<div class="geoportlet-dnk geoportlet-da"> <div class="portlet ..."> ... </div> </div>
- When first creating a geoportlet, use the contained assignment’s title as the portlet title. This ensures that we get a suitable name from the INameChooser adapter.
- Fixed traversal issue that prevented the editing of portlets with a “null” edit-form.
- Fixed security checking issue.
- Fixed a compatibility issue with Python 2.6.
- Fixed an issue where the geolocation database location would not get a default value.
- Initial public release.
