Cmsplugin-zinnia

Cmsplugin-zinnia is a bridge between django-blog-zinnia and django-cms.

This package provides plugins, menus and apphook to integrate your Zinnia powered Weblog into your django-cms Web site.

The code bundled in this application is a copy of the original zinnia.plugins module, made for forward compatibility with django-blog-zinnia > 0.11.

Installation

Once Zinnia and the CMS are installed, you simply have to register cmsplugin_zinnia, in the INSTALLED_APPS section of your project's settings.

Entries with plugins

If you want to use the plugin system of django-cms in your entries, an extended Entry with a PlaceholderField is provided in this package.

Just add this line in your project's settings to use it.

ZINNIA_ENTRY_BASE_MODEL = 'cmsplugin_zinnia.placeholder.EntryPlaceholder'

Note

You have to keep in mind that the default migrations bundled with Zinnia do not reflect the addition made by the EntryPlaceholder model.

A solution to initialize correctly the database can be:

$ python manage.py makemigrations
$ python manage.py migrate

Tips for using the apphook

If you want to use the apphook to provide the blog functionnalities under a specific URL handled by the CMS, remember this tip:

  • Once the apphook is registered, you can remove the inclusion of 'zinnia.urls' in urls.py and then restart the server to see it in full effect.
