Non-standard tags implementation

Non-standard tags implementation

5 years 10 months ago - 5 years 10 months ago #802 by Paul Holmes

Hi,

Are there any plans to use the standard Joomla tags approach to tags in an extension (see  docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Using_Tags_in_an_Extension ) rather than the custom approach currently taken (i.e. storing tags in a column along with the item itself, in CSV format?)

As far as I know tag relationships (i.e. item <-> tag) should be stored in  _contentitem_tag_map rather than inline with the item.

Not using this approach means:

- Can't easily use JOINs to fetch data based on tags
- Incompatible with modules that look for associations in  _contentitem_tag_map 
- Need to unpack tag values from field after query has run

None of which are particularly great traits.

Cheers,

Paul

I need this as well.
I am making a module to get content articles tag, and match with tagged items in my component to display some of the information.

Hi!

We implemented tags in Component Creator in its early state, now it has evolved, as it's standard Joomla, we will prioritize it in our development roadmap. By the way, you are still on time to vote for the rest  www.surveymonkey.com/s/CXCSBC9
