ftw.contentmenu customizes Plone's content menu in the following way:


Certified: 01/2013

  • The workflow menu is removed. Workflow actions are displayed in the actions menu instead.
  • The Add... menu (aka folder factories) can additionally display actions having the category folder_factories.
  • The Add... menu can be customized further by providing a specific adapter which can modify the list of factory items.


Install ftw.contentmenu by adding it to the list of eggs in your buildout or by adding it as a dependency of your policy package. Then run buildout and restart your instance.

eggs =

Go to Site Setup of your Plone site and activate the ftw.contentmenu add-on.


Runs with Plone 4.1, 4.2 or 4.3.
