Personal profile + follow/unfollow functionality for the Plonesocial suite

Project description

Introduction is part of the plonesocial suite.

This package provides a building block for Plone integrators who want to create a custom social business solution in Plone.

If you’re an end-user looking for a pre-integrated solution, you should install plonesocial.suite instead. provides user profiles with follow/unfollow functionality. It intercepts and overrides the default Plone author.cpt profile page. If plonesocial.activitystream is installed, it will show status updates on the profile page.

Additionally, provides @@following and @@followers views that enable exploration of the social graph.

Core rendering logic is factored into two content providers, maxiprofile_provider and miniprofile_provider. This enables and promotes code re-use across different views.

All browser views are anchored on the Site Root, so technically there’s no user context in the form of a Member folder required.

For a full social networking stack, install plonesocial.suite.


Uninstalling either plonesocial.microblog or plonesocial_network removes both utilities, deleting all data.


An extensive roadmap for the plonesocial suite is available on github.
