Assign a CSS style to a portlet
hexagonit.portletstyle is a Plone 4.x add-on that allows you to assign a CSS style to a portlet. You can chose from a list of pre-defined (configurable through Plone Control Panel) classes.
To install hexagonit.portletstyle you simply add hexagonit.portletstyle to the list of eggs in your buildout, run buildout and restart Plone. Then, install hexagonit.portletstyle using the Add-ons control panel.
Click on Manage portlets and add or edit a portlet. Select your desired portlet style from the Portlet Style drop-down menu and save. That’s it.
By default, this package gives you three default portlet styles:
You can add, edit and remove available portlet styles by going to the Plone Control Panel and clicking on the Portlet Styles configlet. Pointing your browser directly to http://<zope_ip>:<zope_port>/<plone_id>/@@portletstyles also does the trick.
Here, you can enter your styles, one by line, with a pipe (|) character delimiting CSS class and style title. For example, a line dummy|Dummy style would produce a Dummy style drop-down menu item that would give the portlet an additional CSS class of foo.
Lines are checked for formatting and validity of CSS classes. One style can have multiple CSS classes, for example, the following is valid: one two|Double class style.
As of this moment, the following portlets are supported (as in, you can select a style when editing them):
The rest of out-of-the-box Plone portlets are non-editable ones as you normally need only one instance per site. For these (and other) reasons the following portlets do not support choosing a style for them:
