Website Portal (Backported From v10)

This module replaces the functionality of website_portal to support sane layout and extensibility and to allow you to have a special layout just for portal pages, to have custom controllers for pages, to have a menu indicating all sections for the portal features, to inherit everything without problems, and to prepare for forward compatibility.

Warning

This module depends on website_portal, but it replaces it. If you install other module based on website_portal that is not adapted to this version, it could work, but there is no guarantee. If you are developing a website portal module, we recommend you to do it based on this one instead, and get those extra benefits.

Warning

If you want to patch any bug or improvement on this module, remember this is a backport. We should not have any custom fixes or improvements here. Rather than that, try to get your patch merged in Odoo v10 and update this backport when done.

Installation

To install this module, you need to:

  1. Uninstall website_portal, if it was installed, and don't install it again as long as this module is installed.

Usage

To use this module, you need to:

  1. Go to your website.
  2. Go to your account.
  3. Enjoy the new layout.

Warning

This module is just a base for other modules. When you install those others, you will actually see something useful in your account.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • This module was born because the core implementation of website_portal in Odoo 9.0 is considered to be broken by some people. Odoo 10.0 will fix that, but we want it all, and we want it now.
  • This module should be getting updates from time to time, given that at backporting time, Odoo 10.0 is not yet even in the beta phase.
  • To avoid some incompatibilities between website_portal and website_portal_v10, this module depends on website_portal and tries to replace just the bits that are new or different in v10. As such, a plain backport without 3-way diffing between this, core v9 and core v10 modules is quite hard.
  • Any module you base on this will need to be updated to be based on website_portal when you migrate it to Odoo 10.0, because this module is only intended to replace that during the 9.0 lifespan.
  • If you install website_portal_v10 and then uninstall it, you need to reinstall website_portal to restore some of this module's changes. Then, you can safely remove any ir.ui.view object belonging to website_portal_v10.
