Extra view to add section name for Plone. Specially useful when having INavigationRoot based sites (like ones with LinguaPlone

Project description

After the INavigationRoot fixes in previous versions of Plone, if you install LinguaPlone 4.x in Plone 4.x you will end having section-es, section-en, and so on in your site.

That’s because LinguaPlone 4.x adds root folder for each language in your site and sets them INavigationRoot interface.

In some projects you need content-based section identifiers for your body to get them styled property by your designer.

That’s what you get with this small products. It just have a browser view with one method. Add it to your main_template in this way:

<body tal:define="isRTL portal_state/is_rtl;
                  sl python:plone_view.have_portlets('plone.leftcolumn', view);
                  sr python:plone_view.have_portlets('plone.rightcolumn', view);
                  root_content context/@@navigation_root_content;
                  body_content_class root_content/section_content_body_class;
                  body_class python:plone_view.bodyClass(template, view) + ' ' + body_content_class;
                  sunburst_view python:context.restrictedTraverse('@@sunburstview')"

In this way your body tag will have an extra content-section-your-items-id class and yet preserve the section-es (or the one for your language).

Useful? It is useful for us :)
