A workflow for Plone >= 4.1 with a state that opens documents in an overlay

Project description

What is this?

  • This Plone product gives you a new popup_workflow so you can publish an item for pop-up effect.
  • When clicking on it in the navigation menu or wherever the state class is shown (like in folder_listing, tableview, )
  • The popup effect is disabled when logged in (so its possible to edit content the normal way)

Warning: Version 4.1 is for Plone 4.1, 4.2 etc ONLY. Use version 0.7 for Plone 4.0


  • Install medialog.popupworkflow
  • Change workflow of a folder or content type or something to Popup workflow
  • Change state of some content to Popup Publish. For security reasons, the change view menu is now disabled. You will need to Normal Publish it to change view.
  • Log out, or use another browser
  • Click on that item in the navigation portlet

If you uninstall the product, you should uninstall or reinstall collective.prettyphoto
