Faceted navigation view for directory

Project Description

This add-on is part of the* suite. For an overview and a demo of these suite, see

Faceted navigation view for directory.

Read eea.facetednavigation and documentation for more information about those amazing products.

This faceted navigation has a pluggable and optional feature that allows user to apply actions to contacts and batch actions to select contacts. You have to “Enable actions” on directory actions.

By default, you have a “delete” action (with selection) and an “edit” action. If you have installed collective.excelexport, you also have an excel export button.

You can add new actions, adding viewlets to viewlet manager ( interface) and to manager ( interface) You have to write the javascript code to handle it. See abstract classes.

Some api will help you to handle the list of selected contents uids and pathes. Use delete action as a model.


  • Add to your eggs.
  • Add to your zcml. #It is not auto included#.
  • Re-run buildout.
  • Install the product in your plone site.

If you don’t want all default features, include only minimal.zcml file and the files you want in configure.zcml.
