-Free! (for basic functionality, otherwise pretty inexpensive to purchase for full functionality)
-Exactly what you expect Tags in articles to be.
-Very little documentation
-Slightly confusing to configure for anything but back-end article editing (there is documentation for this one view)
-Must save article once before adding tags (yes, it's a little thing, but mighty confusing for the layperson)
Would be nice:
-Configurable positions to have tags always appear in (to save from having to click the TorTags button in every article, again it's a little thing, but makes for a lot of steps for the layperson), for instance "Display tags at: (Beginning/End) of article"
All in all a promising plugin that could benefit from a little further development, but is solid and works just like you'd expect.
**For anybody wondering, you can configure adding tags for front-end editing by setting up the component exactly as you would for com_content (back-end article editing), but changing "&view=myview" in the Url template field to "&view=form". If you don't, everything will look correct in the front-end editing view, but the tags won't save!
Thanks for good and helpful review.
So, about cons:
1-2. Documentation. We're writing articles based on a problems with our component. We're always try to help everyone. Progressively, we'll fill up the base of manuals.
3. Before save. In new versions we're already added possibility to add tags before saving article.
4. Without clicked on the TorTags button. In new version you can set "auto insert" in settings of Tortags content-plugin.
Once more, Thank you Liam! You really helped us to find problem areas in our component.
I find myself coming up with all kinds of creative ways of using it to integrate categorically disparate articles, and by doing so, greatly enhance the user experience of the website. It's become one of a handful of extensions that I install on all my Joomla! websites by default.
Even better than it's usefulness is its ease of use! Install, enable, and use. It's that simple - there's no configuration necessary; no stylesheets to play with to get it to look good on your website - nothing. It simply works.
I had one issue with W3 validation, but was able to solve it by editing the plugin's php file so that it places the image links in HTML comments . Facebook still reads the link, and the page now W3 validates :)
I wish all plugins were as easy to use and as functional as this one!
META tag with attribute PROPERTY is valid in HTML5 and this is required attribute by Facebook that it can not be changed to anything else.
