This package includes a content type, views and viewlets to represent a blog inside a Plone site.
Any content type inside a blog (except Image, File and Folder) can be a post.
To enable this product in a buildout-based installation:
Edit your buildout.cfg and add sc.blog to the list of eggs to install:
[buildout] ... eggs = sc.blog
After updating the configuration you need to run ‘’bin/buildout’‘, which will take care of updating your system.
Go to the ‘Site Setup’ page in a Plone site and click on the ‘Add-ons’ link.
Check the box next to sc.blog and click the ‘Activate’ button.
You may have to empty your browser cache and save your resource registries in order to see the effects of the product installation.
Just install the package and start adding Blogs and Posts.
A blog may have an associated image that is shown in a viewlet located below the breadcrumb.
- A suite of blogging modules for Plone. It is primarily designed for integrators. Most people who use Plone for blogging also uses Plone as a customized content management system, and they have specific requirements and their own skin, custom content types and other integrations. It turned out that other Plone blogging products make a lot of assumption about how you are to use it, what you want from a blog, and how your site is set up.
- ftw.blog provides a blog implementation for Plone featuring tags and categories. A user can add a new blog entry and tag it using tags and categories. Available categories are defined by the creator of the blog, whilst tags can be added freely by the author of a blog entry. Blog entries are listed in chronological order, in a tag cloud, by categories, and in a monthly archive. Entries can be searched by using the search function of the blog.
- A dirt-simple blog product for Plone. It copies the News Item content type to create a Blog Entry (with a slightly tweaked view template) and adds an alternative view to Collections (blog_view). Note that blog_view shows either the description of each contained blog entry (if it exists) or the entire body. It’s up to the user to limit those results in an intelligent way so that page loads doesn’t take too long.
There’s a frood who really knows where his towel is.
- Drop support for Python 2.6. [hvelarde]
- Remove dependency on five.grok (closes #11). [rodfersou]
- Remove hard dependency on plone.app.referenceablebehavior as Archetypes is no longer the default framework in Plone 5. Under Plone < 5.0 you should now explicitly add it to the eggs part of your buildout configuration to avoid issues while upgrading. [hvelarde]
- The IExcludeFromNavigation behavior is now enabled by default. [hvelarde]
- Fix issue accessing blogs with VHM urls (closes #9). [jpgimenez]
- The method that returns the content types that are considered blog posts was fixed and renamed from query_portal_types to get_blog_friendly_types. [hvelarde]
- Remove dependency on collective.nitf; now any content type inside a blog (except Image, File and Folder) can be a post. [jpgimenez]
- Register static resource directory manually as Grok no longer does it. Package is now Plone 4.3 compatible. [hvelarde]
- Refactor template of blog header: now it will display the blog image, if present, or the blog title, if not. [hvelarde]
- Image field is no longer required by default. [hvelarde]
- In order to fix ordering in plone.abovecontent viewlet manager, we had to register the plone.path_bar viewlet before everything and then register the sc.blog.blogheader viewlet after everything. [hvelarde]
