Actions generate links to views of content, or to specific methods of the site. They can be filtered via their conditions.
Actions tab is the place to add or modify actions. The following
fields are available to describe an action:
Title-- The freely selectable title will show up as the link text for the linked action in the portal.
Id-- An ID uniquely identifies an action in its action category (see below) and thus should be unique among the other action IDs in the same category.
URL (Expression)-- A TALES expression that is used to construct the link target for the action. The following bound names are available to your expression:
object-- The current object
object_url-- The URL for the current object
folder-- The current object's containing folder
folder_url-- The URL for the current object's containing folder
portal-- The portal object
portal_url-- The URL for the portal
isAnonymous-- A boolean evaluating to a truth value if the current user is an anonymous site visitor and false if the user is authenticated
user_id-- The current user's ID
Condition (Expression)-- A TALES expression that determines whether the described action should be shown or not. The expression namespace contains the same members as described under
Permission-- Select a permission to limit the action to visitors who have the selected permission
Category-- The action category, which is used to subdivide the available actions into logical groups. The category can be arbitrary or one of the commonly-used categories, such as
Visible-- Toggle to enable or disable showing the action link in case the Permission and Condition restrictions are met, but the action is not supposed to show up at all.
