[Plone-UI] What is the Bare-ist of Templates

That sounds exactly right.  Will give it a try and report back.

At the same time, while I've got a moment of yours, would you mind elaborating on this area a bit?

I started off a few years ago with early Plone (1 point something), then drifted away for awhile.  When I came back, I'm on Plone 3 and Zope is hovering between 2 and 3.

I'm having trouble comprehending the new Big Picture when it comes to controlling the Display.  As an "old timer", I guess, I'm used to the template being the ultimate control-point.  The intervention of viewlets, and how they fit into a larger schema/philosophy along with the template --->>> that's what I'm missing in this New World.

I'd really appreciate it if you could take a moment when you have a chance to share your take on that slice of the world.

I dutifully read Andy McKay's bible back when.  This is one area (along with membership) that could use an updated bible.

Thanks for you reply and would appreciate any further wisdom,

Bruce Deutsch

Re: [Plone-UI] What is the Bare-ist of Templates I would just strip down document_view.pt to include what you need, name it homepage_view.pt, and select that as the default view of your site’s homepage. That’s the easiest way to clean out any chaff you don’t want. Then, just embed your .swf code into the homepage_view.pt, and you are good to go.

How can I strip all of the non-essential template structure down to let me accomplish?
