Many people would like to have external web pages inside your Plone site. Products.windowZ was born to do it, in an elegant way.

windowZ provides a new content type, named Window, that is similar to the content type Link. It shows the provided relative or absolute URL inside an iFrame rendered as a Plone page.

However we can configure windowZ to do some usefull things to us, like:

- Displays inside Plone any outside-to-Plone web page available on the web.
- Catalogs the content from the provided web pages. Users may choose which pages to catalog.
- Gives users the ability to hide left, right or both columns of the Plone site.
- Each page may be individually resized.
- Users may opt display the content metadata or show only the web page without any meta-information in the Plone.

windowZ was the CMFDisplayPage product available only in the Plone collective repository without any release. But it was too hard to mantain and evolute it because its code was pure CMF-aware.

So it was rewrited from scratch using ArchGenXML to generate the code. Just in a few hours of work. Now we can finally make a release! ArchGenXML rocks!

It's pronunciation may be: windows, windoze, window(Z) of Zope... You are free to choose the way...

Please, help us to improve and translate windowZ!


- Uncompress or symlink windowZ into the Products directory of your Zope instance and restart Zope.
- Use the 'Add/Remove Products' (QuickInstaller Tool) to install windowZ.
- You should configure windowZ in the Plone control panel (Site Setup).
- You can create Window contents in all folders of your Plone site.
- You can restrict Window creation through the permission:
 windowZ: Add Window
- You can wrap sites by using http://your_plone_site/show_window?url=
