Anyone know what the best way of adding a custom content type to the default Document's addable_to list is?

If you want to be able to add a content of a custom content type to a content of Document content type, you've just to add the name of Document content type ('Document') to the CustomContentType.type_info.addable_to attribute (http://kotti.readthedocs.io/en/latest/first_steps/tut-2.html).

Sorry, I think I've misunderstood your question. So, if you want to add a custom content type to the default Document's addable_to list, you can add this following lines in your __init__.kotti_configure() function:

from kotti.resources import Document
Document.type_info.addable_to.append('CustomContentType')

Thats great. Brain got stuck on overrides and overlooked adding it straight to the Document object. /facepalm
Thanks a bunch!
