Project description

staticblocks provides you with tools for content managers to easily include flatpage content as a snippet in your templates while retaining structured control over the templates themselves.

The template designers will define page blocks in the templates.

The content managers will choose which flatpage to use as the snippet embedded in each page block.

You must have ‘django.contrib.flatpages’ in your INSTALLED_APPS.

To install, add ‘staticblocks’ to your INSTALLED_APPS and re-run syncdb.

Using it

Code to write

On the template level, define your static blocks with arbitrary string labels by passing the label into the scope of the included template snippet:

{% with "index.html/firstpageblock" as blockname %}
  {% include 'staticblock/widgets/block.html' %}
{% endwith %}

{% with "index.html/secondpageblock" as blockname %}
  {% include 'staticblock/widgets/block.html' %}
{% endwith %}

On the site, allowed users will now be able to associate that page block with a flatpage, which will be pulled in as page content into that block.

Permissions to assign

Assign the following permisssions to your users and groups as desired:

flatpages.add_flatpage
flatpages.change_flatpage
staticblocks.add_staticblock
staticblocks.change_staticblock

Templates to use

You can customize the layout of the pulled-in block by editing or forking these templates:

staticblock/templates/staticblock/widgets/block.html
staticblock/templates/staticblock/widgets/title.html
