Tagging add-on for Plone

Project description


ftw.tagging extends Plone content types with a tags field using schemaextender for Archetype or a behavior for Dexterity.

It’s possible to define tag roots to restrict tags to a part of the site. If no tag root is set, the Plone-root will also be your tag-root.

A tag cloud portlet is provided that shows a tag cloud for the current tag root.

As an example, ftw.tagging is used by for tagging blog entries.


  • Add ftw.tagging to your buildout configuration:
eggs =
  • Run buildout
  • Install ftw.tagging in portal_setup


Enable tagging on your DX types with a behavior:

<property name="behaviors" purge="False">
  <element value="ftw.tagging.behavior.ITagging" />

Optionally use a behavior to define tag roots:

<property name="behaviors" purge="False">
  <element value="ftw.tagging.interfaces.tagging.ITagRoot" />

Tag Cloud

You can show the tag-cloud by adding the tag-cloud portlet provided by this package.
