we are running Plone 5.2.0 using Python 3.6.8. We've added the Navigation-Portlet on the site root so it automatically is visible on every subfolder and other Container-like Dextery types recursively. We created many new types for our addon and for some types the Navigation should not be rendered. It seems not possible to define types where the Portlet should not be rendered or to exclude the portlet in certain views. The portlet manager (
/manage-portlets) does not show inherited portlets so that we could hide them manually.
What's the correct way to hide inherited portlets for certain types or views?
I found things like this: https://docs.plone.org/develop/plone/functionality/portlets.html#disabling-right-or-left-columns-in-a-view-or-template
But many of the links there show an 404 which is unfortunate and I don't know what
disable_plone.rightcolumn exactly does. The explanation is just to short for me to understand it. What is the left and what is the right column? I thought there are portlet managers and portlets but not left and right columns. I don't get it.
I hope you can enlighten me here. Thanks a lot!
