Customising eZ Publish's toolbar
The eZ Publish Website Toolbar extension (ezwt) is easy to customize. Recently, we wanted to allow our staff to easily save PDF versions of web page content (without the surrounding headers and page navigation). We installed and configured the excellent ParadoxPDF extension which uses a Java program running behind the scenes on our Linux server to generate a PDF, but how best to make this functionality accessible to our staff? The toolbar is by definition a bar of tools so that seemed the best place to add a button for this new tool. By simply adding two lines to a settings file and writing a short template, our users got a new PDF button in the toolbar at the top of every page, allowing them to download content in clean PDF format with a single click.
