Add a prompt on selected workflow transitions for the user to enter a comment

Project description


This package installs a JavaScript handler (using jQuery) that will present
a prompt box inviting the user to enter a comment before triggering a workflow
transition from the 'state' drop-down in a standard Plone site.

The handler will only be used for workflow actions using the standard
`content_status_modify` script.

You can restrict this behaviour on some transitions through a control panel.

You can make the comment required or not.

collective.wfcomment Installation

To install collective.wfcomment into the global Python environment (or a workingenv),
using a traditional Zope 2 instance, you can do this:

* When you're reading this you have probably already run
``easy_install collective.wfcomment``. Find out how to install setuptools
(and EasyInstall) here:

* Create a file called ``collective.wfcomment-configure.zcml`` in the
``/path/to/instance/etc/package-includes`` directory. The file
should only contain this::

<include package="collective.wfcomment" />

Alternatively, if you are using zc.buildout and the plone.recipe.zope2instance
recipe to manage your project, you can do this:

* Add ``collective.wfcomment`` to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

eggs =

* Tell the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to install a ZCML slug:

recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
zcml =

* Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

$ ./bin/buildout

You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package
from another package's configure.zcml file.
