Stacks: Re-usable content blocks in django CMS.

Project description

Stacks: re-usable content blocks

To put it in terms of django CMS: This is re-usable Placeholder. It can used in any template as a named entity:

{% load stack_tags %}
{% stack 'my_footer' %}

This will create a Stack with the my_footer identifier. It can be edited in admin.

Stacks can also be used inside regular placeholders. Suppose you have some content that you want to re-use in multiple places: Make a stack and insert that stack with the StackLinkPlugin wherever you need it.

Stacks is multilingual (using the multilinguality of cms-plugins. So make sure your stack is translated into the language of the page you place it on.

There is currently no validation in place to prevent infinite loops… so please don’t put a StackLinkPlugin inside a Stack with a link to itself.

Requirements

  • python>=2.6

  • Django>=1.3

  • django-cms>=2.3
