Zope/Plone Tips and Tricks

(Plone) Files that start with a dot (ie .config, .htaccess)

These files are ignored by directory listings in Plone, but they can be downloaded, if the end-user knows the exact address of the file.

Turn off webDAV access for authenticated

A Zope default installation has webDAV access allowed for all authenticated users, irrespective of their security level. To turn this off, move to the root folder and click on Security. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and uncheck “WebDAV Access” under the “Authenticated” role.

(Plone) Title requirement work-around

If you don’t want to place a “Title” in an object that requires one, (ie documents in Plone), you can place a space in the “Title” form field, and Plone will no longer complain about the missing “Title”.
