Content Quality helper tools¶
A selection of add-ons that can help create and maintain appealing, searchable, and high-quality content.
Apart from the inbuilt tools, there are several add-ons available.
Note that these are all separate add-ons you will have to install, and we strongly suggest testing them out first on a separate test-instance of your site, to see if they fit your purpose and do not interfere with other parts of your site. Also, some of these tools rely on web-services, which may or may not be allowed or advisable in high-security scenarios.
Avoiding content errors¶
collective.jekyll is a package that will help you identify common pitfalls, like too long or short titles or descriptions, or a URL starting with “copy_of”. You can even set it up so it alerts editors when they don’t stick to the preferred image format, or if a page has not enough links to other pages.
eea.progressbar can provide a visual clue as to where a document is in the workflow progress, making it easier for editors and reviewers to track what to do next to publish a document.
Check your links¶
collective.linkcheck provides link validity checking and reporting.
although you may also want to keep this out of Plone itself, and run an external linkchecker regularly. This Linkchecker is open source, available for multiple platforms and can be scripted.
Products.ImageEditor allows you to rotate, flip, blur, compress, change contrast & brightness, sharpen, add drop shadows, crop, resize an image, and apply sepia.
collective.aviary integrates the external “Aviary” image editor into Plone.
plone.app.imagecropping surprisingly enough, crops images.
Analytics and SEO¶
collective.googleanalytics enables easy tracking of the standard Google statistics as well as external links, e-mail address clicks and file downloads. It also defines Analytics reports that are used to query Google and display the results using Google Visualizations.
quintagroup.seoptimizer allows setting various meta tags and other information search engines like and need.
if you have migrated from another system, and need to set up aliases to content that still lives in search engines, Products.RedirectionTool gives you an interface to Plone’s built-in redirection and aliasing.
And after all that work, you can use quintagroup.analytics to see your webmaster stats increase. Now lean back with your favorite hot beverage, you’ve earned it!
