EEA Annotator is the Plone integration of http://okfnlabs.org/annotator/ which allows your editors to easily collaborate on a Plone document by adding annotations (inline comments) on it.
Inline comments on any webpage.
Portal types aware. Possibility to enable inline comments only for certain content types.
Workflow aware. Possibility to enable/disable inline comments only for certain workflow states (via content rules).
Events. Possibility to define custom content-rules based on inline comments events: add/reply/close/re-open/delete (e.g. notify users by e-mail)
Dexterity aware. It works also with dexterity content-types.
Contextually disable inline comments.
Moderate inline comments.
Add eea.annotator to your eggs section in your buildout and re-run buildout. You can download a sample buildout from https://github.com/eea/eea.annotator/tree/master/buildouts/plone4
Install eea.annotator within Site Setup > Add-ons
Plone version dependency
eea.annotator does not have a hard dependency on Plone 4.3, however, it has been built around plone.app.jquery version 1.7.2 which is shipped by default with Plone 4.3. If you wish to use the product on an older version of Plone, you could pin the plone.app.jquery version to 1.7.2.
Go to Plone Site Setup > EEA Annotator Settings and enable inline comments for your content-types (default enabled for Page).
Go to your work-space within Plone Site and add a new object (Page) or user an existing one.
In view mode select text you want to comment on and add an inline comment.
Within edit form > Settings Tab you can contextually disable inline comments.
You can also add an “Inline comments” portlet in order to overview all inline comments on this page.
Click on the title of the Inline comments portlet if any or just access @@moderate-inline-comments
Dexterity content-types are supported by EEA Annotator.
In order to be able to contextually disable inline comments you need to add a boolean field called disableAnnotator within your Dexterity content-type schema fields.
In order to be able to contextually make inline comments read-only you need to add a boolean field called readOnlyAnnotator within your Dexterity content-type schema fields. (Plone Site Setup > Dexterity Content Types > MyCustomType > Fields)
