Six Feet Up Releases Lineage for Plone
February 11, 2009
Six Feet Up is pleased to announce the release of Lineage, the subsite creation product for Plone. Lineage is a product that allows subfolders of a Plone site to appear as autonomous Plone sites to the everyday user. This hub and spoke structure allows site administrators to easily manage multiple, seemingly independent, sub-entity websites in one Plone. Furthermore, the "parent" site can access and view the content in all the "child" sites while the child sites only view their own content. The parent site can also syndicate chosen content to the selected child sites. Lineage is less complex and easier to manage than a cluster of nested Plone sites but gives users all the same benefits.
Lineage can be used within a large organization to manage multiple sub-sites , such as school district sites, university departments, corporate product sites, public library satellites, professional association events, and more.
Six Feet Up would especially like to thank Martin Aspeli for his inspiration and the Duke Clinical Research Institute group for project funding.
