Provides functionality to hide the left or right portlet column per article

Project description


Articles get the option to hide the left or the right column or both.

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


  • Option to hide the portlet columns


  • raptus.article.core


To install raptus.article.hidecolumns 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.hidecolumns 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.hidecolumns 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.hidecolumns either by adding it to the zcml list in your buildout or by including it in another package’s configure.zcml.


Edit your article. You will now have two new options in the “settings” tab:

  • Hide left portlet slot

  • Hide right portlet slot

If you select one of them the selected column will be hidden.
