collective.folderorder 1.3.1

Set sort order of Plone folders
collective.folderorder is a Plone prodcut to set the order of folders in Plone.

Usally Plone folders are ordered by the creation order of the documents. This is what also can be sorted.

This add-on allows to set an alternative order for container types, i.e. folders. Selecting the new entry Order from the action dropdown show a form. Within the form one of the registered ordering methods can be selected. Theres are already adapters unordered and partial provided by plone.folder package. This package add an adapter reversed which just reverses the order provided by the default adapter.

Developers can easily add own adapters by providing plone.folder.interfaces.IOrdering for a given context which implements plone.folder.interfaces.IOrderableFolder.


Just depend in your buildout on the egg collective.folderorder. ZCML is loaded automagically with z3c.autoinclude.

Install it as an addon in Plone control-panel or portal_setup.

This package is written for Plone 4.1 or later.
