Project description

This package is an addon for ftw.simplelayout. Please make sure you already installed ftw.simplelayout on your plone site before installing this addon.

ftw.collectionblock works exactly the same way as a Plone Collection, since it uses the same ICollection behavior.

The differences:

  1. The collection block is shown as a Block with a simplified default view.

  2. Only one detail view the listing_view is implemented. If you need more it’s on you :-)

  3. RSS is enabled by default, it just needs to be enabled globally, since it respects the ISyndication settings.

  4. The collectionblock has its own permission
