Some thoughts


Posted on 06 December 2013

While it is very nice that this plugin extracts all the keywords from the meta as "tags" and show at the bottom of the article as "tags" however, I was disappointed when I saw that when I click on these "tags" it only just open that keyword in the basic search (whether you set and want to use the inteligent search on your site).

So while it is nice to show - here comes a more accurate definition- "extracted metakeywords with hyperlinks which points to basic search page after article" and it might be advertise using the search among viewers however tags should show the articles what the publisher want to show in each tag and not what the search want to offer (since there might be a name in an article but the article is nothing about him)



But it might be enough and useful for other site developers. These are just my personal thoughts on this plugin.



And I'm very thankful for sharing your work in the joomla extension directory. Keep up the good work.



So this plugin would be the best if:

-it could copy the metakeywords to the joomla tags

-by clicking on tags it could show all the articles with optional picture and lead in a simple list

-also with a tag manager (or just use the basic joomla one)


Excellent!

This is such an easy plugin that does exactly want it says it does. There isn't an easier way to put tags to the Joomla content. This is great!


This is a great non-commercial plugin. Thank you so much for making it. However, like the comment "Fractioned," I was stumped. Now that Joomla 3.1 has introduced Tags into the Joomla core, I could not figure out why my metakeywords were showing. Like a big fat dummy, I had installed Showtags and moved on. Then SEO-Generator pumped my articles with juicy keywords. Just a friendly suggestion, perhaps Showtags should be renamed Showkeywords now that "Tags" is an actual separate entity in the Joomla 3.1+ core.


Simplicity is Art

I was delighted to see that this extension did exactly what was stated on the tin.



Its free opensource and hosted on github (extra +).



The maintainer has created an easy to follow "documentation". Both for "users" and "advanced users"



Thanks.

Thank you :)

Good Extensions, Only 1 comment on it. It took me half a hour to figure out you basically renamed the field into Keywords instead of Tags. A little confusing if you ask me.

Owner's reply: I didn't translated the keywords field. It's a native Joomla! field. If you read the extension description:

"Showtags is a Joomla content plugin to show article tags in category or article views. Plugin is based on article meta-keywords"

This extension uses article meta-keywords as tags. I understand that can be something confused if you are not familiarized with Joomla!.

I'm sure that your comment will avoid the same confusion to others. I'll include this into the documentation.

Thank you for your time reviewing/giving feedback.

Excellent

simple to install

Does what is says

Roberto was very kindly and quickly answered my question. And I was able to customize the plugin

Owner's reply: After your suggestion I decided to write some documentation about extension customization.

Thanks for your review and your feedback!

I installed this plugin in an e-learning site, where my students can tag their own articles and search any article by tags. They can click a tag to view the search results. On sites with many articles, it is a good and quick research tool. So, the plugin is very usefull, easy to install and works fine - as expected.

Owner's reply: Thank you for sharing your example application and for submitting the german translation. I really appreciate it!

Muchas gracias!

Excellent
