Meet the eZ Community

What's it like being a member of the eZ Community? Who are eZ's partners and what are the benefits of being part of the community? Lisa Manfield from Mugo Web wrote about this and here's what she had to say:

“When you choose to build a website in eZ Publish or eZ Platform, you’re not just getting a super functional and long-lasting content management system, you’re also getting access to a community of developers who work together to ensure you’ll get the best possible solutions and service over the long term.” Read the full article.

Kieron Sambrook-Smith, Chief Commercial Officer at, explains why people are switching away from traditional hosting and talks about the benefits of eZ Platform Cloud for developers and companies' bottom lines. eZ sat down with him at eZ Conference 2017 in London to talk about the newly launched eZ Platform Cloud.

Question of the Week

Gaetano Giunta from Kaliop asked this question on our Slack channel: “A question for eztag gurus: is there in the existing service(s) a query that will return contents 'more similar' to another content, based on tags, a bit like solr's MLT query?”

Petar Španja provided an answer you might find interesting too: “here’s a basic MLT criterion implementation from my workshop on this year WSC You should be able to adapt it to use tag fields for comparison. Note: IIRC Solr v5+ required for MLT query parser.”
