Project Description


The intent of this package is to be able to make your plone site completely read-only except for a set of conditions that can be defined and enabled/disabled.

Adding a commit condition

An example commit rule:

from wildcard.lockdown import addCommitCondition
addCommitCondition("User Area",
addCommitCondition("R/W domain",

You’ll then need to enable them in the control panel.

addCommitCondition parameters

Name of condition that’ll show up in the management inteface
An enabling glob expression. This path is always based of the relative Plone site, not the Zope root.
Enabling HTTP request method
Published object’s portal type
Enabling globing globbing expression for the host name
require user to be logged in
Custom function to do manual checks against the request object. Return True if you want to commit, false if not.

Every rule parameter in the commit condition will need to be valid in order for the condition to successfully allow the commit.

Only one condition needs to be valid on the request in order for the commit to take place.
