A Plone portlet to display similar items to context

Project description



This is a simple portlet that displays content similar to the present context. Related items are compiled based on the context title and keywords. In case of a folderish context related items are computed based on the contents of the folder and the folder information.


The relateditems portlet is used in production. See


The portlet has the following options available to it on the Add screen.

  • count

    This is the number of recent items that will be shown in the portlet.

  • states

    The workflow states the items must be in to be shown in the portlet.

  • allowed_types

    The allowed types to be shown in the portlet and the ‘more…’ link search

  • show_all_types

    Choose whether or not all types should be available for the ‘more…’ link. This will search for all content types when clicking on ‘more…’

  • portlet_title

    Title in portlet.

  • only_subject

    If selected, we will search only on content subject.

  • display_all_fallback

    If selected, we will display all llowed items where there are no results for our current related items query

  • display_description

    If selected, we will show the content short description
