Provides a behavior for using with dexterity content types

Project description


The IStagingSupport behavior is used for enabling the functionality for Dexterity content. It allows you to perform the checkout and checkin operations to work on a copy of your original content.


Just use the behavior in your Dexterity content-type.

In your profiles/default/types/YOURTYPE.xml add the behavior:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<object name="example.conference.presenter" meta_type="Dexterity FTI"
   i18n:domain="example.conference" xmlns:i18n="">

 <!-- enabled behaviors -->
 <property name="behaviors">
     <element value="" />


The IStagingSupport behavior just adds the referred staging support to your content-type, but it does not enable it.

You have to set the “versioning” option in the Plone types control panel (/@@types-controlpanel) to either “Manual” or “Automatic” for activating versioning.

More Information

0.1 (2014-10-20)

  • use index instead of template for info viewlet to allow overriding the template with zcml registrations (sync approach with that used in p.a.iterate) [cewing]

  • Fix a problem with the implementation of dexterity support at, when this behavior is used with the delete_confirmation form was failing because the object than is being deleted doesn’t have an intid.
