Project description


ftw.noticebaord provides a simple structure to manage Notices in a Intranet environment. People (Intranet users) can post and manage their Notices in this separate space.


ftw.noticebaord comes with a predefined and ready to work with workflow:

  • All Authenticated users can add new Notices in Notice Categories.
  • Admins (Site Administrator / Manager) can manage the Board itself, the Categories and all Notices.
  • It’s possible to create multiple Boards per Plone Site

Once you installed the package and applied the profile (see install section) you can add a new Board in the Plone root. You can make it addable wherever you wish to though. After adding some categories the Board is ready to use. As soon as people are authenticated they are also authorized to use the Board.


  • New DX based content types:

    • NoticeBoard (Container for Categories)
    • NoticeCategory (Container for Notices)
    • Notice
    • NoticeImage (Custom Image DX Type - This way we can control the add permission)
  • Views:

  • General:

    • Using collective.quickupload Upload Portlet on Notice view for multipload of images.
    • Using a customized IPublication behavior to define how long the Notice should be active.
    • “Terms and conditions” can be defined per Category. The User needs to accept them in order to create a new Notice.


This package is implemented using ftw.themeing - So SCSS only, no default CSS for the default plone theme.


Plone 4.3.x


  • Add the package to your buildout configuration:
eggs +=
  • And apply ftw.noticeboard default profile
  • Add new NoticeBoard and NoticeCategories

Technical hints:

This package uses ftw.lawgiver for the worklfow generation. It’s not mandatory to use the predefined worklfow. This package also uses collective.deletepermission in order to make it possible for users to delete their own Notices. Styles are introduced with ftw.theming. So the package is right now not really styled at all, that’s your job. If you are using a ftw.theming based Theme. Like plonetheme.blueberry or plonetheme.onegovbear it will look acceptable
