Ordered Object Manager (1.5.1)

Released on 2005-02-22 by Maik Jablonski for Plone 2.0, Zope 2 under Unavailable License available for All platforms.
Software development stage: stable
The OrderedObjectManager patches the ObjectManager so that you can determine the order of all ZOPE-objects by hand. Simply "click & move" the objects to the required positions. This is extremly useful if you need special sortings for objects in folders for displaying in navigational elements.

OrderedObjectManager is prepared to be used with ExternalEditor and AbracadabraObject. OrderedObjectManager patches the OFS/dtml/main.dtml. If you use other products which patches this page, you have to resolve resulting conflicts by combining these changes.

If you want to integrate OrderedObjectManager into your Plone-Site, create an External Method in your Plone-Site with

id = Install

Module Name = OrderedObjectManager.Install

Function Name = install

save it and then execute it by clicking on Test. Now you can see two additional buttons if you view folder contents in a Plone-Folder, which allow you to determine positions of objects by moving selected objects up and down. Please note: OrderedObjectManager delivers a slightly patched version folder_contents. You should test OrderedObjectManager in a clean Plone-Site to see how it works, before you integrate it into your production site.

The OrderedObjectManager works reliable for me and I can't live without it anymore, but I will give no warranty at all. Don't use this product in production environments before you've tested it properly in a sandbox!!!
