Main features

  • Auto update related items based on internal links found within object’s metadata.

Install

Getting started

  1. Get your alchemy key here: http://www.alchemyapi.com/api/register.html
  2. Update your alchemy API key within Site Setup > Alchemy Settings
  3. Within Plone Control panel go to Alchemy Discoverer.

Auto tagging

  1. Enable auto-tagging within Site Setup > Alchemy Settings
  2. Edit your document and add some tags for it within /edit > Categorization. For example, if you’re writing a news article about water pollution go to /edit > Categorization and add water pollution within tags field (also known as keywords, subjects, topics). Now when you navigate to the View page of this article, you’ll notice that all occurrences of water pollution within your news article body are links to a custom search page which is also configurable within Alchemy Settings ControlPanel

Auto relations

  1. Enable auto-relations within Site Setup > Alchemy Settings
  2. Edit your document and add some internal links for it within /edit > Body Text. For example, if you’re writing an article about an event add a internal link to this event within Body Text field. Now Save your article and you should see a notification message on top of the page saying something like: Automatically detected and added one relation since it is linked in content. If you check the related content section for your article you’ll notice that the Event object was automatically added there.
