ftw.subsite 1.3.1

Latest Version: 2.4.4


ftw.subsite provides a Subsite content type for embedding another website within a Plone site. It does this by defining it as navigation root.

Additional functionality provided by ftw.subsite

  • It is possible to define a language on a subsite content, which overrides the default behavior of how Plone deals with languages (PloneLanguageTool). If you define a language on a subsite all content on and in the subsite will be delivered in the chosen language. This functionality is not related to the product LinguaPlone.

    Make sure you have all languages activated you want, for example:

    environment-vars =
        PTS_LANGUAGES de en fr
        zope_i18n_allowed_languages de en fr
  • ftw.subsite has its own language switch viewlet which is based on the Subsite configuration. You can connect two or more subsites with different languages together by referencing each other with the custom reference field on the Subsite.

  • Custom CSS for a Subsite

  • Custom Logo for a Subsite. The logo is registered with a different name subsite.logo. The setup of ftw.subsite hides the default plone logo. You can change this afterwards if you like.
