Introduction

Content in eZ Publish is stored in attributes of content objects. A datatype describes the type of value that can be stored in an attribute and is the smallest possible entity of storage. It determines how a specific type of information should be validated, stored and retrieved. eZ Publish comes with a set of datatypes for, among other things, plain text, formatted text, images, email addresses and dates. This article explains how to create additional datatypes in eZ Publish 4, and explores how to take advantage of some of the new eZ Publish 4 features.

I would suggest to get in touch with the initial author, and ask the question. You can do so using the Direct Contact link from Thomas' profile : http://share.ez.no/community/profile/11587

Good enough tutorial, I managed to create my own datatype following this and some standard datatype as example.

 

On the other hand, I would be interested in exactly this datatype, date/time with timezone information, but I cannot find the source code. Does anyone know where it could be?

This tutorial is really interesting, but the source code is missing!

I contacted the original author to get some information about that... meanwhile, is there anybody that have downloaded the source code when it was available?

 

Thank you

Sorry for not providing the source code for quite some time now. We just have put the code up on github. The link found in the article now redirects to this repository "ymc-ezp-datatypes" there.

Many thanks to Graham from Brookins Consulting for contacting us and to point this issue out.
