Puts a nice overlay over Archetypes' default keywordwidget for plone.

Project description


This package is using jquery muliselect plugin to make a nicer keyword-widget for Plone. It depends on jquery and jquery.ui.

No changes are made on the keyword-widget itself!

Cool: ftw.keywordoverlay works with multiple keywordWidgets.

Limitation: Experienced problems if there are more than aprox.500 keywords


  • Add ftw.keywordoverlay to yout eggs section in your buildout:

eggs +=
  • Use quickinstaller to install it on your plone site.

  • Javascript and CSS is added, which automatically hooks into the widget.


1.x is using collective.js.jqueryui and plone 4 (which ships a suitable jquery version)

0.2 depends on jquery 1.3.x and jquery.ui 1.7.x, jquery 1.4.x is currently not supported
