A content type to store and parse pdf publications

Project description


The Publication Product can be used to organise printed publications that are available online for download. Publications usually have a publication date, order and ISBN numbers, and an author. They may exist in several language versions. Once stored in the Publication Product, they can be displayed using auto-generated overviews.


If LinguaPlone is installed, multiple language versions of a publication can be uploaded. A box that offers a link to every language version will be displayed.


LinguaPlone needs to be installed separately, e.g. by adding it to the buildout.


You need the following libs available on your system:

1.1.9 (2009-10-06)

  • Chapter links now always point to the url. Normally, if you click on a link and you have edit rights, you would go to the link view and not to the link target.
