Web page


Open a new project:

./odoo.py scaffold newpage addons

Add website as a dependency to newpage:

'depends': '[website]'

then add the website=True flag on the controller, this sets up a few new variables on the request object and allows using the website layout in our template.

Creating pages

1 way

Write the following code in controllers.py:

from openerp import http
        @http.route('/new-page/',auth='public', website=True)
        def index(self,**kw):
            return http.request.render('newpage.index')

The new web page will appear by adding - /new-page/ http.request.render('newpage.index') – downloading a tamplate for a new page

A pattern templates.xml

            <t t-call="website.layout">
                <t t-set="title">New page</t>
                    <div class="oe_structure">
                        <div class="container">
                            <h1>My first web page</h1>
                            <p>Hello, world!</p>

website.layout means that the elements of pattern website are used.

After restarting the server while updating the module (in order to update the manifest and template) access http://localhost:8069/new-page/. You will see a new page with a title ‘My first web page’ and with text ‘Hello, world!’

2 way

Write in pattern the following:

<template name="Services page" id="website.services" page="True">
    <t t-call="website.layout">
        <div id="wrap">
            <div class="container">
                <h1>Our Services</h1>
                <ul class="services">
                    <li>Cloud Hosting</li>
                    <li>Unlimited space</li>

page="True" creates a page as follows below: http://localhost:8069/page/services/

If add in view.xml:

<record id="services_page_link" model="website.menu">
    <field name="name">Services</field>
    <field name="url">/page/services</field>
    <field name="parent_id" ref="website.main_menu" />
    <field name="sequence" type="int">99</field>

This code will add a link to the main menu.
