collective.contentstats: nice!

Long-time Plone community member Raphael Ritz just released collective.contentstats, a new little add-on for Plone that generates a simple grid view that counts up each of your Plone content objects by content type and by workflow state.

In addition to the obvious function of providing a quick and easy way to track how many pieces of content you’ve got in your site, being able to quickly click through any number to get a list of the matching content objects is a tremendous simple way for site managers to zero in on draft content that might have gotten abandoned before being published, or old, retracted content that is ripe for deletion.

We’re already using it on Groundwire.org, and I’m looking forward to rolling it out to Groundwire clients.  Thanks, Raphael!
