I've been having problems configuring my portlets. According to the
@@manage_portlets view, I have no portlets in the right column. However, Plone
reserves an empty space on the right side of the screen for showing portlets.
I installed a workaround (I hacked into the sunburst theme to not show any
portlets in the right column) but I really need to fix this properly (I cannot
test the patience of my client too long).
I got the idea of exporting my portlets settings using the export tool. The
result shows me that there are in fact portlets configured in the right column.
I edited the xml to the short piece below, which I hope will remove the
So far, I have not been succesfull, and I'm left with some questions:
- the import tool lets you select the target profile. However, the export tool
does not let you select the source profile. Does this mean that the export tool
always exports the config that results from combining all profiles?
- if this is the case, how does one know in which profile to import the modified
- I added purge="False" in the root "portlets" tag (see below). Is this the
correct way to ensure that my piece of XML does not replace the entire existing
- I added remove="True" to the assignment statements that (I think) assign the
portlet to the right column. Is this the correct way to remove the assignment? I
tried importing this into several profiles, but when I check (by exporting
portlets.xml) the assignments are still there.
<assignment name="news" category="context" key="/"
manager="plone.rightcolumn" type="portlets.News" visible="True"
<assignment name="events" category="context" key="/"
manager="plone.rightcolumn" type="portlets.Events" visible="True"
