Contentpage based on Simplelayout for for web/intranet

Project description


ftw.contentpage provides some content types optimized for organisations, communities, associations, and more.

It uses simplelayout to manage and display the content.


  • Add ftw.contentpage to your buildout configuration:
eggs +=
  • Install the generic import profile.



  • ContentPage: Folderish type for the site structure. Contains the blocks
  • AddressBlock: AddressBlock contains address informations and it uses ftw.geo to render a map
  • ListingBlock: A folderish block, which lists files and images by default. Two block views are provided: Tabular listing and a gallery view. The columns of the file listing are configurable per block. The default set of columns is configured through the the registry ( The default sort order of the Listingblock file listing can be configured per block.

Special views:

There’s a two-column and two-level overview called authorities_view, which displays a list of ContentPages with an AddressBlock. If an AddressBlock is added to a ContentPage, it adds a marker interface on the ContentPage, so it’s easy to recognize ContentPage’s containing an AddressBlock.

ContentListing viewlet:

The content listing viewlet is registered for all ContentPages. It shows categorized subcontent, within the ContentPage The categorization is done by a schemaextended field, so it’s also possible to categorize your own or any other content.

Code example:

<class class="">
  <implements interface="ftw.contentpage.interfaces.ICategorizable" />

ftw.contentpage is using the additional slot provided by simplelayout (implements the IAdditionalListingEnabled interface of simplelayout)

So the layout has the following structure:

  1. Simplelayout main slot for blocks
  2. The content listing viewlet
  3. The additional slot for blocks

This way it’s possible to display content below the content listing viewlet (by drag’n’drop)
