collective.advancedsearchtamer 1.0

Tries to tame Plone's advanced search form
collective.advancedsearchtamer is a small Plone 3 add-on which attempts to tame the advanced search form. It uses javascript to add a checkbox to each search element in the form which enables/disables that element.

The result is that the urls generated by the search form are generally much shorter, as only the required fields are sent on the request.


First you need to install this package. You can install this in either the system python path or in the lib/python directory of your Zope instance. If you have setuptools installed you can do this using easy_install:

easy_install collective.advancedsearchtamer

If you do not have setuptools you can install it manually using the script in the source. If you want to install it inside your Zope instance instead of system wide you can its ''--prefix='' option to install in the ''lib/python'' directory of your Zope instance.

After installing the package it needs to be registered in your Zope instance. This can be done by putting a collective.advancedsearchtamer-configure.zcml file in the etc/pakage-includes directory with this content.
