Saved searches and e-mail alerts in eZ Publish

Wednesday 03 December 2014 06:51

by Thiago Campos Viana  | 0 comments

A powerful addition a normal site search is for registered users to be able to save their searches, share the searches with others, and create customized e-mail alerts. This adds a deeper level of interactivity with the site and encourages users to regularly return to the site.

Looking for "Solr redundant-write solution" pull request feedback

Thursday 27 November 2014 08:28

by Thiago Campos Viana  | 0 comments

Hi everybody, I have worked on a solution for eZ find that would allow eZ publish to update several solr instances at once. This is a key part of a solution that removes Solr as a single point of failure. Specifically, this allows eZ Publish to write to a each of a pool of instances, and read from them via a VIP or load balancer. This avoids the issues the Solr has with peer to peer replication, but more importantly provides support for enterprise clients that are using older versions of Solr.

Please check the pull request at github.

Yesterday I had a great chat with Roland Benedetti, eZ Systems CPMO and André Rømcke, eZ Systems lead engineer, about  the latest eZ Publish version 5.4 and what is coming next. We had no network issues this time, but some problems with focus at the beginning. It was Angry Che's fault ;)

"Sort by language" filter in eZ Publish

Saturday 22 November 2014 01:10

by Peter Keung  | 0 comments

Multi-language sites often have a set of base rules and then edge cases for different parts of the site. For example, on the French version of the site you might only want to show French content on most pages. For the news section, you might want to show press release results from all languages sorted in reverse chronological order, regardless of language. But for the case study section specifically, you might want to show all French versions first, following by case studies in any other language. For the most part, eZ Publish supports these features out of the box. In this post, we'll show you how to extend eZ Publish to sort results by language.

We recently added "quiz" functionality to eZ Publish by extending the eZ Survey extension. The purpose of this functionality is to enable companies to create "on-boarding" quizzes for new hires to learn about company policies and benefits.  This was part of a larger intranet implementation.

Subscription-based sites: softer / combination paywall solution

Friday 14 November 2014 02:14

by Betsy Gamrat  | 1 comment

On subscription-based websites, digital publishers often restrict the majority of content to registered users and/or paid subscribers. However, publishers still need a way to enable non-registered users to sample the website in order for the visitors to more fully understand the benefits to subscribing. This is sometimes called a "softer" or "combination" paywall as opposed to a fully hard paywall (everything protected) or a "porous" paywall (everything available given the right conditions).
