Plone integration for plone.contentrules

Project description

Introduction provides Plone-specific conditions and actions, as well as a user interface for plone.contentrules.

Compatibility with Plone versions

The 3.x series is intended for usage with Plone 4.3 and up and features the new content rules UI. Development of this package continues in the master branch.

For use with versions of Plone earlier than 4.3, use versions <= 2.2.1. Development of maintenance versions can be found in the 2.x branch.

  • Fixed reordering of actions / conditions. This occurred when ‘jq’ was not defined as ‘jQuery’. [thomasdesvenain]

  • User that manage a rule can now allow actions executed by this rule to recursively trigger other rules. For example, if you have a rule that automatically publish added content, and an other rule that sends an email when a content is published, if autopublish rule is marked as ‘cascading’, then send mail rule will be triggered. [thomasdesvenain]

  • Mail action: if string interpolation of recipient gives several times the same email address, the email is sent only once to this recipient. [thomasdesvenain]

  • Workaround KeyError: context for unicode TALES expressions in content rules by providing the expression context. This was triggered by a TALES expression such as u'string:${portal_url}. [davidjb]

3.0.4 (2013-08-13)

  • When we assign a rule, it is enabled by default and is applied to subfolders. When we apply a rule to subfolders, it is enabled if it wasn’t. [thomasdesvenain]

  • Do not display Rules action unless some Content Rules are defined. [runyaga]

  • Content rules can handle user events [Julien Marinescu, kiorky]

  • Any event can use the email handler [Julien Marinescu, kiorky]

3.0.1 (2013-04-06)

  • Use single quotes instead of double to avoid breaking translation [ericof]

  • Fix multi assignment of rules [ericof]

3.0 (2013-03-05)

  • Improve management pages user interface :

    • Improve and ajaxify rules table. Avoids scrolling and page reloads.

    • Improve rules table filter (multiple selection, more readable).

    • Improve content rules forms usability. We are redirected to edit form after a rule has been added.

    • Add form and Edit form are now consistent.

    • Notify user by many ways when a rule is not assigned anywhere yet.

    • We can assign a rule on whole site by a simple button.

  • Unified the site setup html structure [TH-code]

2.1.9 (2012-08-30)

  • Notify user with error message instead of a core dump if they set up a content mail action without the mailer set up. Prevents users from throwing computer out of window when they click save and all their hard entered data is gone. [eleddy]

2.1.8 (2012-08-11)

  • Adding a content rule is not handled by ‘added’ rule… Fixes infinite loop on adding a content rule. [thomasdesvenain]

  • ContainerModified event is excluded from ‘modified’ event handling. This avoids for example adding a comment to launch ‘modified’ rules registered for it. [thomasdesvenain]

2.1.7 (2012-08-04)

  • Import IEndRequestEvent from zope.publisher instead of [davisagli]

  • Rules execution filter is no more based on event context, but in rule assignment context. This allows the same rule to be executed on different objects during the same request, including during the same test. [thomasdesvenain]

  • Fixed: When two or more objects are initialized during the same request, ‘Object added’ content rule handler is executed only once. Refs [thomasdesvenain]

  • Prepend mail messages with \n to avoid interpretation of first line as a mail header. [smcmahon]
