Explore Plone content by keywords/tags

Project description

© 2003-2010 Ingeniweb

PloneKeywordExplorer is an alternative to the usual Plone search. Searches are restricted to combinations of keywords.

The search is iterative. Keywords can be added and removed from the search at any time, allowing the user to conveniently explore the document space. The result set can be narrowed down to a few documents in a few steps.

PloneKeywordExplorer depends on well-chosen keywords, and supports finding documents that don’t have keywords associated. When you click on the [no keywords], you get a list of all documents that do not have keywords. You can browse through this list and start annotating your documents.


Plone 2.1, Plone 2.5 or Plone 3.x

How does it work?

A search form is provided that offers a choice of keywords. These keywords are chosen from the published documents of your site. You can select and remove keywords by clicking on them.


Add Products.PloneKeywordExplorer to the eggs list in your plone.recipe.zope2instance of your zc.buildout configuration file. Like this:

recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
eggs =

Then install in your Plone site using the portal_quickinstaller tool or in the extensions Plone control panel.

  • Use the QuickInstaller Tool to install.



if upgrading from the non-egg distribution of this component (version 0.4 and earlier) you will need to delete in ZMI the content of /Control_Panel/TranslationService before restarting your instance.
