A Plone content rules action that creates a chronological archive.
sc.contentrules.groupbydate is a very basic content rule action used to organize content under a chronological-based hierarchy on a web site upon publication.
A news portal with a few dozen new content items per day needs to organize its information in a chronological, yet human-readable, hierarchy.
To do so this package is installed in a Plone Site and a new content rule is created. This content rule will be triggered by the publication of an News Item and will initialize a ‘’’Move an item to a date-based folder structure’’’.
This action has a target (/news) and a structure (‘ymd’), so as our News Item, with id hello-world, is published on the site, it will be moved to a a new folder structure under /news. Supposing it’s December 19th, 2008, the item will end in /news/2009/12/19/hello-world.
To enable this product,on a buildout based installation:
Edit your buildout.cfg and add sc.contentrules.groupbydate to the list of eggs to install[buildout] ... eggs = sc.contentrules.groupbydate
For Plone 3.1 and Plone 3.2 tell the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to install a ZCML slug:[instance] ... zcml = ... sc.contentrules.groupbydate
If another package depends on the sc.contentrules.groupbydate egg or includes its zcml directly you do not need to specify anything in the buildout configuration: buildout will detect this automatically.
After updating the configuration you need to run the ‘’bin/buildout’’, which will take care of updating your system.
