PloneAtom 0.1.3

PloneAtom provides Atom support for Plone.
PloneAtom provides Atom support for Plone.

This is a Plone product (that could probably be trivially modified for the CMF itself) which provides Atom support for Plone. Currently it provides the Atom syndication format for folderish objects, in the same way as RSS syndication is implemented.

Enabling Atom syndication

Atom syndication is enabled in exactly the same way as RSS syndication. To enable syndication on the site in general:

.Login as an admin user.

.Go to 'Plone Setup' and choose 'Zope Management Interface'

.Select the 'Properties' tab in the 'portal_syndication' tool.

.Click 'enable syndication'. Then, to enable syndication support for a particular folderish object:

.Login as a user who has Owner/Manager permission for the folder.

.Surf to that folder and select the 'syndication' tab.

.Click 'Enable syndication'. Don't worry about the syndication options it gives you -- they are not used by atom (and ignored in most RSS clients, from what I've seen).


Zope 2.7.2 (required)
Plone CMS 2.0.3 (recommended)

Using Atom syndication

To access the Atom syndicated version of a particular folder, the URL is that folder with '/ATOM' appended. For example, if you are looking for the syndicated version of '', it would be at ''.
