aws.inlineuserpref 1.0.0

Per user Plone inline KSS editing preference

Introduction

Since Plone 3.1.5, a site manager can enable or disable globally inline editing (KSS) to all users or nobody. Enabling inline editing is fair to users ho got a fast computer and a modern browser.

Content authors in lots of organizations who have Plone powered intranets have old computers and/or cannot install a modern browser, mostly stuck with IE6, thus cannot use inline editing unless it bloats their computer.

aws.inlineuserpref provides a user control panel that let members choose if they prefer or not using inline editing, such users with decent computers and recent browser can carry on enjoying inline editing, while others with old computers and browsers cans disable inline editing.

Requirements

Plone 3.1.5 or later.

Installation

With zc.buildout

Recommanded installation for production sites. Add these lines to your buildout.cfg

[buildout]
...
eggs =
    ...
    aws.inlineuserpref
    ...

[instance]
recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
...
zcml =
    ...
    aw.inlineuserpref
    aw.inlineuserpref-overrides

Development

Developers of this package should use the buildout.cfg that comes in the subversion bundle. See Subversion repository below.

In the Plone site

Install aws.inlineuserpref as usually either with the quick installer or the setup tool.

Upgrading

If you upgraded aws.inlineuserpref from a previous version, upgrades may be available. Open in ZMI the “Upgrades” tab of the “portal_setup” tool and look if upgrades are available for aws.inlineuserpref:default profile.

Usage for content authors

The control panel is available from the user’s preferences panel. Its usage is obvious and self explanative.

How to

Default KSS preference should be “off” for any new user

I didn’t make a control panel for this. Just open the Properties tab of the portal_memberdata object of your Plone site, and uncheck the enable_inline_editing property.
