Toolbar for Plone

Project Description installs a new content editing toolbar for Plone.

Current status

Current focus of is to get interfaces of Content editors into overlays. This excludes all pages in Site Setup.

There are 2 form widgets which haven’t yet been made functional in

  • Related Items widget.
  • Search filter widget in Collection content type.

Other then that things should be working, if they don’t please report them to issue tracker.


To install toolbar drop following lines to your buildout.cfg:

extends =
versions = versions
parts = instance

recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
user = admin:admin
http-address = 7000
eggs =
zcml =

[versions] = 1.8.3 = 0.2 = 1.2

Bellow version pins are for Plone version 4.3rc1 or higher.

Make sure you install the “Plone Toolbar” profile when creating your Plone site or include profile in your metadata.xml..

To start developing you can find buildout at buildout.deco repository.:

Diazo rules

First we need to copy toolbar’s html code:

<append theme="/html/body"
    content="//div[@data-iframe='plone-toolbar']" />

Then in case we are not copying all resources from Plone (content) to theme we have to include resources as well:

<append theme="/html/head">
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
    <script type="text/javascript"

Above 2 rules should be enough so that your theme will support
