About ZAAPlugins

A set of plugins for use with ZAttachmentAttribute

(Nothing by now)


ZAAPlugins : a collection of ZAttachment Plugins

See ZAttachmentAttribute/README.txt for information about it.


  • win32 : all necessary dependencies are includid as binaries
  • unix : you need to install the following packages (see individual README.txt in each plugin directory for more information) :
    • xlhtml ; for excel & powerpoint plugins
    • xpdf ; for pdf plugin
    • wvware ; for word plugin


  • PDF :
    • Images are not previewable
    • Default code page is used - you cannot change it to your Plone's one, for example


Some folks (thank you Renaud !) reported that ZAAPlugins couldn't start under Zope 2.7, reporting a strange IOError 10 [ENOCHILD] at startup. This is the case when you start Zope with "zopectl fg". If you experience this error, please use "runzope" instead of "zopectl fg" to start your instance, or use "zopectl start" instead.
