JS Picture Galleries

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

To use collective.prettyphoto install the package and set the property teaser_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:

  • teaser_thumb_scale

  • teaser_left_scale

  • teaser_full_scale

  • teaser_popup_scale


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

Plone 3 compatibility

This packages requires which requires two pins in buildout when using Plone 3, which there are:

Products.Archetypes = 1.5.16
plone.scale = 1.2



call this view on myplone/@@blob-article-teaser-migration and run the migration. all media have a separate view at myplone/@@blob-article-media-migration.



Navigate to the “Components” tab of your article and select one of the teaser image components and press “save and view”. Note that at the article requires an image to be set in the edit form for the components to display.
