Restrict addable portlet types

Project Description

This packages allows you to restrict the available portlets that non-Managers can add.

Features

  • On any page where portlets can be added, the product checks a list of portlets that are restricted to only Managers. This includes the personal dashboard.
  • There is a control panel for selecting which portlets to disallow for non-Managers.

Compatibility

This package is tested on Plone 4.3 and 5.0.

It should be fine for Plone 4.1 and 4.2 as well:

  • It patches a method from plone.portlets that has not changed since version 2.0 (Plone 4.0).
  • We need plone.app.registry for our setting and the control panel, so this means Plone 4.1.

The most important part of this package is a small monkey patch for plone.portlets.manager.PortletManager.getAddablePortletTypes. If you have other code that patches this, it may not work.

Testing

This package is tested with Travis:

Default

After you install the product in the Plone add-ons control panel, by default these portlets are restricted:

  • Classic portlet
  • Login portlet

You can make them available again in the Restrict portlets control panel.

Translations

This product has been translated into:

  • Dutch (Maurits van Rees)

Installation

Install collective.restrictportlets by adding it to your buildout:

[buildout]

...

eggs =
    collective.restrictportlets

and then running bin/buildout. Now you can activate it in the add-ons control panel and configure it in the Restrict portlets control panel.
