Update links to child objects in TextFields and ReferenceFields when an Archetypes based object is copied and pasted

Project Description

Introduction

A drop in package for Plone that improves the copy and paste operation of folder structures. Reference fields (e.g. relatedItems) and UID inline links in text fields are rewritten if they reference any of the content within the folder structure being copied so that they now link to the copied content.

Development

the buildout in this package will create a test stub which can be run with:

./bin/test -s collective.updatelinksoncopy

See the doctests for more information of what this package does.

Edit buildout.cfg to point to either buildouts/buildout-plone3.cfg or buildouts/buildout-plone4.cfg. Don’t forget to rerun bootstrap.py with python2.4 or python2.6 for plone 3 and plone 4 respectively.

Credits

Initial development by Matt Halstead sponsored by Innovationz.

Addition of reference field handling by Matt Halstead sponsored by Informaat.

Installation

This package requires Plone 3.x or later (tested on 3.3.x).

If you are using zc.buildout and the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to manage your project, you can add collective.updatelinksoncopy to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

[buildout]
...
eggs =
    ...
    collective.updatelinksoncopy

(If you are working with a version of Plone < 3.3 then you’ll also need to install a ZCML slug.)
