Plone: Add Contact Link to Global Navigation

How to link to Plone's content-info view from the global navigation bar

Plone IconIf you would like to display Plone's built-in contact form in a more prominent position, here is how to add it to the global navigation bar:

  • in the site root, create a folder called contact
  • goto http://<yoursite>/contact/manage_propertiesForm
  • on this form, add a new property called layout with the value contact-info

Assuming that your navigation is set up to automatically generate tabs, the contact form will now appear in the global navigation. If not, check your settings at Site SetupNavigation Settings. When selected, the tab will be marked as current in the navigation bar, just like an ordinary content page.

Note, that the manage_propertiesForm is not available via the Zope Management Interface.
