imageportlet 1.1

imageportlet add-on provides a portlet for Plone CMS for easily add images, banners and carousels around the content on your site


*imageportlet* add-on provides a portlet for `Plone CMS <http:"">`_
for easily add images, banners and carousels around the content on your site.

The add-on is very useful for extra portlet manager add-ons like
`Products.ContentWellPortlets <http:"" products="" contentwellportlets="">`_
to bannerize and decorate your site.

.. contents:: :local:


* Inline image upload from a local computer directly into the portlet. No separate image bank folder management needed.

* Image can act as a link or simply serve as a decorative banner

* Plain text slots for heading, footer, over-the-image text (button) and ``<img>`` alt text

* Carousel images via `jQuery Cycle Lite <http:"" cycle=""/>`_

* Cache friendly: unique URLs after each edit allows the images cached forever in the front-end cache

.. image ::

Use cases

* `Image menus and links <http:"">`_

* `image buttons <http:"" fi="" teemat="" pariskunnat="">`_.

* `In-house advertisement banners <http:"">`_

* `Mini image carousels <http:"" fi=""/>`_.


The benefit over static text portlet + TinyMCE uploaded images is vastly
easier user experience. You don't need to separate portlets or place to upload the image:
images are managed within the portlet.

The management is much streamlined for non-power users.


The add-on is compatible down to Plone 3.3.5.

Update buildout.

Plone 4.2 and newer: add ``imageportlet`` to eggs in buildout.cfg::

eggs =

Old releases: `With Dexterity 1.1 pindowns <http:"" products="" dexterity="" documentation="" how-to="" install="">`_::

# Change the number here to change the version of Plone being used
extends =

eggs =

Run buildout.

Install the ``imageportlet`` add-on in Site Setup.

Go to any portlet manager and choose *Add new portlert... Image Portlet*.


IE6, IE7 cannot do over-the-image text correclty and those portlets are hidden.
