Take advantage of redturtle.smartlink backend/frontend URLs conversion feature, overriding Plone URLs when sending e-mails using content rules.


When using Plone content rules mail action, you can rely on some URL-like variables:

  • ${url}
  • ${absolute_url}
  • ${parent_url}

This product could help your when your Plone site use different URLs for backend (http://admin.yourcompany.com/) and front-end (http://www.yourcompany.com/). Action taken in the backend (for example: a contributor add a new document) could trigger e-mail message where variables above will be replaced by backend URLs.

If e-mail messages are targeted to front-end users, this can be a problem.

This product take advantage of redturtle.smartlink Plone add-on and its backend-frontend transformation feature. Before replacing URL variables, it try to apply Smart Link configuration to them.

Original mappings (that do not use Smart Link configuration) will be still available using new names:

  • ${original_url}
  • ${original_absolute_url}
  • ${original_parent_url}


Developed with the support of Regione Emilia Romagna; Regione Emilia Romagna supports the PloneGov initiative.


This product was developed by RedTurtle Technology team.
