Rotating content for Plone

Project description

Overview

This package provides rotating of arbitrary content in Plone.

It comes with a default portlet to display rotating content but you can easily plug in your own one and/or viewlets, etc.

Installation

To get started you will simply need to add the package to your “eggs” and “zcml” sections, run buildout, restart your Plone instance and install the “iqpp.plone.rotating” package using the quick-installer or via the “Add-on Products” section in “Site Setup”.

Create a Collection (Topic) to select the content which should be rotated. (For instance you can use the “aggregator” within the default news or events folder).

Adapt the options within the “Rotating Options” tab.

Add a “Rotating” portlet and enter the path to the Collection.

How it works

First it asks the associated Collection for all objects, which match the criteria. If the requested items for rotating are less than the found ones it decides randomly which ones to return.

Options

Return Already Selected:

If checked, already selected items can be displayed again. Otherwise items are displayed only once.

Reset Selected:

If checked already selected items will be reset if all items has been displayed. Otherwise no item will be returned if all items has been displayed.

Update Intervall

Within this intervall (in hours) the same objects are returned.

Set To Midnight

If checked “Last Update” is always set to midnight. This only makes sense if “Update Intervall” is set to an multiple of 24 hours. In this way you can display one item per day for instance.

Status

The package is beta but it is in use within a few production sites.
