A Blogging Suite for Plone.

Project description

Quills is an Enterprise Weblog System for the Plone content management system. It is designed from the ground up to work well and provide specialized features for a multi-blog, multi-user environment.

Requires Plone 3.1 or later.


There are a few packages that add extra functionality to your Blog.


Use your Blog with any Weblog Editor that supports the MetaWeblog API. This feature requires the Products.MetaWeblogPASPlugin product to be installed into your Plone site.


There is a slight incompatibility with Quintagroup’s Plone Comments product. To fix it, open the ZMI of your Plone site and go to the “portal_form_controler”. There select the tab “Actions” and delete the overide “discussion_reply_form”.
