Provides a jQuery based content switcher

Project description


Provides a jQuery based content switcher.

The following features for raptus.article are provided by this package:


  • Content switcher (continually fades in and out the contained articles and provides a navigation)

  • Content switcher teaser (continually fades in and out the contained articles and provides a navigation)


  • raptus.inlinelightbox

  • raptus.article.nesting

  • raptus.article.teaser


To install raptus.article.contentswitcher into your Plone instance, locate the file buildout.cfg in the root of your Plone instance directory on the file system, and open it in a text editor.

Add the actual raptus.article.contentfader add-on to the “eggs” section of buildout.cfg. Look for the section that looks like this:

eggs =

This section might have additional lines if you have other add-ons already installed. Just add the raptus.article.contentfader on a separate line, like this:

eggs =

Note that you have to run buildout like this:

$ bin/buildout

Then go to the “Add-ons” control panel in Plone as an administrator, and install or reinstall the “raptus.article.default” product.

Note that if you do not use the raptus.article.default package you have to include the zcml of raptus.article.contentswitcher either by adding it to the zcml list in your buildout or by including it in another package’s configure.zcml.



Navigate to the “Components” tab of your article and select one of the content switcher components and press “save and view”. Note that at least one article has to be contained in the article in which this component is active.
