imageportlet add-on provides a portlet for Plone CMS for easily add images, banners and carousels around the content on your site

Project Description
Introduction
===========================

*imageportlet* add-on provides a portlet for `Plone CMS <http://plone.org>`_
for easily add images, banners and carousels around the content on your site.

The add-on is very useful for extra portlet manager add-ons like
`Products.ContentWellPortlets <http://plone.org/products/contentwellportlets>`_
to bannerize and decorate your site.

.. contents:: :local:

Features
===========================

* Inline image upload from a local computer directly into the portlet. No separate image bank folder management needed.

* Image can act as a link or simply serve as a decorative banner

* Plain text slots for heading, footer, over-the-image text (button) and ``<img>`` alt text

* Carousel images via `jQuery Cycle Lite <http://jquery.malsup.com/cycle/>`_

* Cache friendly: unique URLs after each edit allows the images cached forever in the front-end cache

Use cases
===========================

* `Image menus and links <http://www.visitkalajoki.fi>`_

* `image buttons <http://www.visitkalajoki.fi/fi/teemat/pariskunnat>`_.

* `In-house advertisement banners <http://www.visitkalajoki.fi>`_

* `Mini image carousels <http://www.hotellilevitunturi.fi/fi/>`_.

Benefits
===========================

The benefit over static text portlet + TinyMCE uploaded images is vastly
easier user experience. You don't need to separate portlets or place to upload the image:
images are managed within the portlet.

The management is much streamlined for non-power users.

Installation
===========================

The add-on is compatible down to Plone 3.3.5.

Update buildout.

Plone 4.2 and newer: add ``imageportlet`` to eggs in buildout.cfg::

eggs =
...
imageportlet

Old releases: `With Dexterity 1.1 pindowns <http://plone.org/products/dexterity/documentation/how-to/install>`_::

# Change the number here to change the version of Plone being used
extends =
http://dist.plone.org/release/3.3.5/versions.cfg
http://good-py.appspot.com/release/dexterity/1.1?plone=3.3.5

eggs =
...
imageportlet


Run buildout.

Install the ``imageportlet`` add-on in Site Setup.

Go to any portlet manager and choose *Add new portlert... Image Portlet*.

Limitations
===========================

IE6, IE7 cannot do over-the-image text correclty and those portlets are hidden.
