Provides a behavior for using CMFEditions with dexterity content types is a Plone product used for enabling the CMFEditions functionality for dexterity contents. It adds a changeNote-field to the edit- and add-forms and creates a new version when the content is edited, if enabled for the content type.

It's based on Products.CMFEditions. For listing the versions of an object use CMFEdtions' view versions_history_form or the history viewlet (see default @@view).


Just use the behavior in your dexterity content type.

In your profiles/default/types/YOURTYPE.xml add the behavior:

< ?xml version="1.0"? >
< object name="example.conference.presenter" meta_type="Dexterity FTI"
 i18n:domain="example.conference" xmlns:i18n="" >

 < !-- enabled behaviors -- >
 < property name="behaviors" >
 < element value="" / >
 < /property >

< /object >

The IVersionable behavior just adds versioning support to your content type, but it does not enable it. You have to set the "versioning" option in the Plone types control panel (/@@types-controlpanel) to either "Manual" or "Automatic" for activating versioning.
