This product contains a number of small patches to other products
This product patches Zope when it installs. As a general rule I
would advise against installing this on a production server until
you have tested it properly. I have used this patch on Zope
versions 2.2.0, 2.2.2 and 2.3.0 and it has not killed them..... yet .....
You have been warned.
Text File Converter
This patch adds a "Text Convert" tab to 'DTML Method', 'DTML Document',
and 'File' objects (It only appears for 'File' objects if the
'content_type' starts with "text/").
Its purpose is to allow you to convert an object containing text content
to a DTML Document, DTML Method or
ZStyleSheet - http://www.zope.org/Members/haqa/ZStyleSheet
(If it is installed). Files like StyleSheets (.css) text files (.txt)
Server Parsed HTML (.shtml) and a host of other formats get created
as File objects when you add them through xml-rpc, WebDAV, or FTP.
Image File Converter
This patch adds an "Image Convert" tab to 'File' objects (It only appears
if the 'content_type' starts with "image/").
Its purpose is to allow you to convert an object containing image data
to an 'Image' object so that you can take advantage of the facilities
it provides (Auto adding 'WIDTH=""' and 'HEIGHT=""' to the IMG tag etc..).
This patch adds a "Web Import" tab to 'Folder' objects.
Its purpose is to allow you to import objects from other web sites
without having to download to your local machine, and then upload to
the Zope server. This, for instance, allows you to manage your Zope
from a "Dumb" browser like a WebTV or similar (I don't know who would
want to but...).
Thanks go to Shane Hathaway for his Refresh Product which contained the
patch logic I borrowed. It also more that halved my developement cycle
time on this, and my ZStyleSheet products.
