Tags to categorize Contao elements

This module allows to create tags for any Contao element.

It provides a basic database structure to save the tags and it can be used to visualize existing tags.

The module contains the following extensions:

  • A widget TagField for backend forms. You can add tags as a comma separated list into a text field. The tags are saved into a separate database table.
  • A frontend module Tag Cloud to visualize the tags in a cloud like in the Contao extension repository. The Tag Cloud can optionally contain a top tags list of tags and a list of related tags.
  • A frontend module Global article list to show a list of all articles in a Contao installation. If the global article list is called from a tag cloud, only the articles with the given tag are listed
  • A tag field for articles, news entries and calendar/events, content elements, and files
  • An extended content element "heading" that can be shown only if tags are used.
  • An insert tag {{tags_used}} that shows a list of used tags.
  • Added: Save news archive URL parameters if a news archive is used on the same page as a tag cloud

Please note that for a proper integration the Mootools support must be activated in your Contao page layout.

  • Contao 2.10 compatibility

  • Added: Clear tags option. When checked, an additional hyperlink is shown to clear all selected tags.
  • Added: Module "Tag scope". This module shows all selected tags on a page. It supports the following actions: a) Clear all selected tags. b) Select a specific tag c) Clear a specific tag.

1.6.6

1.6.5

  • Fixed: Problem with calextend-Extension which prevents the extension of the eventlist-Module by removing the eventlist module legends

  • Removed automatic manipulation of headlines when tags are used. Instead the used tags are available in the template variable 'tags_activetags' and the number of hits in the template variable 'tags_total_found'. This behaviour is NOT compatible with previous versions of this extension. To get the same result you have to modify existing template like mod_newslist etc. on your own but it's definitely the better and cleaner solution. I apologize for all inconveniences.
