A simple collection portlet for Plone, where you manually choose your skins template id

Project description


A collection portlet that use a custom view template to show search results.

User must manually put inside the “Template Id” field of the portlet the id of a Zope Page Template, commonly available in portal_skins.

Please note: you can use a Zope 3 style @@view.

Seems crappy?

Yes, this is not very user friendly, but this product save us from developing a lot of collection portlet clones!

Create your own template

It’s simple, but we suggest you starting from the default template you will find inside the source of this product: check the file.
