Provides basic gallery components.

Project description


Provides basic gallery components.

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


  • Gallery left (Gallery of the images contained in the article on the left side)

  • Gallery right (Gallery of the images contained in the article on the right side)

  • Gallery columns (Gallery of the images contained in the article arranged in columns)


  • raptus.article.images


Maximum number of Items

Use the gallery_left_maxitems (gallery_right_maxitems and gallery_columns_maxitems respectively) property to limit the number of images shown in a gallery. (The Javascript popup will display the other images as well)

Javascript popup

By default this component opens images in a Products.jsImagePopups gallery.

To use collective.prettyphoto install the package and set the property gallery_rel_attribute to prettyPhoto.

To use scales simply set the corresponding properties to the name if the image scale.

If present, those will overrule the width and height settings.

available properties:

  • images_galleryleft_scale

  • images_galleryright_scale

  • images_gallerycolumns_scale

  • imagse_popup_scale

If you use scales for the image dimensions and is installed you’ll see a cropping icon in the management links for the gallery items (when you are in component editing mode)

This icon will open an overlay to define the cropping region for the used scale and update the image when the dialog is closed


Note if you install raptus.article.default you can skip this installation steps.

To install 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 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 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 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 gallery components and press “save and view”. Note that at least one image has to be contained in the article in which this component is active.
