TTWType - a product for defining new CMF types via the ZMI

    you can use TTWType to define new CMF portal types via
    the ZMI (without creating a new product). This is different
    to modifying existing portal types as you can also add new
    fields.

    This is some sort of prototype implementation to test
    this idea.

    Prerequisites

	- Formulator (tested with 1.3.0)
	- CMF
	- Plone (might be optional, I only tested it with Plone)

    Installation

	create an external method inside your portal with the
	following data:

	id -- install_ttwtype

	title -- Install TTW Type

	module name -- TTWType.Install

	function name -- install

	Then click on the Test Tab and the skins aswell as the
	navigation and validation properties for a plone site
	will be installed.

	Ready it's for usage.
   
    Usage

	1. Go to the portal_types inside your Portal.

	2. Add a new "TTW type information" from the drop-down box 

	3. optionally fill in description and title

	4. click on the "Fields" tab on the top 

	5. you will be presented by a Formulator management screen.
	   Simply add fields and configure them.
	   These will be used in the edit form also. 

	6. now you can add your new type via the normal Plone/CMF interface

	Optionally you can then adjust the ttw_view skin (copy it to
	a new name and change the view action in your type information).
