Patch for Plone. Not raise error when visiting file contents with missing BLOB file


The BLOB support in Plone is amazing for a lot of reasons.

However, right now, Plone will raise errors when you visit a file content that use BLOB support, without having also the BLOB file.

I don’t know if this is good or not (I opened an issue related to this), but for developers this can be a little boring. It’s quite common to copy a production Data.fs for developing something using production data, but you don’t always want to copy all blobs.

This product will simply monkey-pach some points inside Plone, so visiting a ATFile/ATImage without its BLOB available will not show any errors to visitors.


This product has been tested on:

  • Plone 3.3 (with 1.5)
  • Plone 4.0
  • Plone 4.1


This is designed only for development/staging environment. Do not use in production if you are not sure of what you are doing!


Developed with the support of S. Anna Hospital, Ferrara; S. Anna Hospital supports the PloneGov initiative.


This product was developed by RedTurtle Technology team.
