DeepaMehta 4 Webpages

This DeepaMehta 4 Plugin brings simple, multi-site web-publishing capabilities to your DeepaMehta 4 installation. Installing it introduces the types Webpage, Redirect, Menu Item and Website to your DeepaMehta 4.

Website Example: Setup of the Kiezatlas Webpages

Feature-wise it allows for a global standard website and, if desired, this module provides each of your users their personal resource for publishing. Subsequently each website can appear in different style or layout, has its own menu items, footer and frontpage. Webpages can also extend the style or layout of their website and users are also allowd to load their own JavaScript for their page.

The HTML generated by this module tries to map (at best as possible) the DeepaMehta standard types to terms of the vocabulary.

It builds on our recent work, especially on the dm4-thymeleaf module.

Installation Requirements

See system requirements at jri/deepamehta

It is recommended to use DeepaMehta 4.8.3 (or higher) and it is required to use the following

You'll find both available for download both at

Usage: Creating a Webpage

To start working a Webpage simply use the Create menu in Toolbar (upper grey area of DeepaMehta).

To publish a Webpage it must be connected to a Website.

  1. Navigate and reveal your Website (e.g. via following the My Website button after clicking your Username in the Toolbar). The website topic allows you to edit and enter some basic information which occurs on all your webpages (Footer, About, Layout, etc):

You can also reveal your website through search By Type and then selecting Website.

  1. Creating a Webpage is as simple as using the New Webpage when having selected a Website item.

That's it. Your webpage is now published under your hostname and its so called Web Alias. The very same steps apply if you want to publish a Redirect or a Menu item on your website.

Note: The permission who can see your published webpage depends on the so called SharingMode of the workspace your webpage is assigned to.
