collective.portletalias allows “alias” portlets from other locations to show on the current content in Plone CMS. This is useful if you need to have the same portlet to be visible in different unrelated locations and have only one copy where the portlet content is edited and maintaned.
Install package as collective.portletalias and then install in Add on setup.
Plone 4.1+ and Python 2.7 required. Easy to backport for earlier versions if needed.
Add /@@portlet-data to URL of any content item to show debug information about the portlets assigned there. Admin priviledges needed.
If you have a default item set (like front-page) for the content append /front-page/@@portlet-data to URL to see all the portlets.
Go to Manage portlets view in the target folder
Choose Add new portlet… Alias Portlet
Enter the path to the source folder
Enter the portlet id of the source portlet. Use @@portlet-data view (above) to find out portlet assignment name
