A Plone portlet that shows a focus item.

Project Description


This portlet shows a focus item as focus in the portlet. It’s LinguaPlone aware, and is initially created to provide a language-dependent address footer.

Author: Lennart Regebro <>

Development funded by the Nordic Council and Nordic Concil of Ministers.


The product is compatible with Plone 3 and Plone 4.


Add unice.portlet.focus to your buildout and re-run buildout. Install the product in your Plone site using the Plone Control Panel (prefs_install_products_form) or the ZMI’s portal_quickinstaller.


Go to @@manage-portlets. If the product was installed properly, you’ll have the option to add a Focus Portlet.

Next, select a focus item to display. It can be any type of item. You can select which of the item’s fields you want to display in the portlet’s focus area:

  • Title (either as a link to the focus item or as plain text)
  • Description
  • Date
  • Body text
  • Image

When the focus item doesn’t have a selected field, it should work without errors, but you’d obviously not see the field in the portlet.

You can set these options separately:

  • portlet’s title as shown in @@manage-portlets screen
  • portlet header title as rendered on page (use focus’s title or select custom)
  • hide portlet header altogether
  • conditionally show a portlet footer with a link to the focus item (link text is configurable)
  • disable the portlet border

To do

  • tests


1.0 (unreleased)

  • Added German translation and moved portlet title and description to i18:domain plone to make them translateable in the add portlet dropdown, too [fRiSi]
