Grouped Plone keywords

┬áThe keywords system is plone is ok, but it’s not great. There is a few alternative such as Portal Taxonomy, and it is quite well discussed elsewhere. However, most systems I’ve seen replace the keywords system entirely, meaning that only modified/new products can use the improved system. All I wanted was something a little better than the list box, and a 2 level hierarchy would also be nice. Using the existing keyword infrastructure was pretty much a must, so it will tie in to any future core changes to Plone.

So, I devised a widget to replace the keywords widget, which provided a simple hierarchy, and check boxes to select the keywords. It is constructed off the keywords list, with a / used as the separator. ie Group1/KeyWord1. Sooner or later I’ll put it on, but until then it is available from SVN at

    Looks useful, doesn’t seem to work yet though, are there dependences (couldn’t see in the code?)
    I would like to get this working so any tips etc would be most welcome
