PloneGetPaid-PloneFormGen integration

Project description



Link PloneFormGen with PloneGetPaid so a form can add items or donations to the GetPaid shopping cart.


To begin with we need a working Plone instance with PloneGetPaid, PloneFormGen and DataGridField installed.


There are two ways of installing getpaid.formgen, if you got it as an egg you just easy_install it or fetch it with your buildout or else you can copy the inner formgen from this folder structure to your instance’s /lib/python/getpaid. After that you will see PloneGetPaid-PloneFormGen in your plone control pannel addon product section (you may see two, install whichever you want, they are the same thing). After hitting install you are done, now whenever you create a FormGen folder you will have as available content types a “GetPaid Adapter” which creates the required folders for a GetPaid checkout and allows you to map any GetPaid product on the site to a field on your form.

A few remarks:

  • If you are using other adapters (such as salesforce one) please make sure to edit and save (even without changes) this one last, because it adds a clause to all other present adapters so they execute after it, this avoids comitting data of an order that can be rejected.
  • Make sure to remove the default mail adapter from the FormgenForm or you could end up sending sensible data by mail by accident.
