One of the features that make it interesting is that not only can include tags in the content component (com_content) native Joomla, but virtually any component, whether JoomShopping, MarketPlace, JEvents, VirtueMart, K2, JoomGallery, Joombah jobs, RedShop, Form2Content, Phoca Gallery[categories] or other simply by adding the component from the backend using the fields editor. In addition, tag-labels can be added anywhere in the article, beginning, middle or end of the article.

Your tags in one place. And this place - a paradise for tags - it's Tortags.

Our plans:
- Multilanguage version
- Import meta data from the articles to the tags, and vice versa.
- tags for Joomla 3.x (legacy)

Thank you for using our component.

Integration with JoomGallery. Since the latest updates to Joomla were released, this app is rife with errors!
Ease of use
Good product, easy to install, but configuration sucks. Settings won't save.
Practically non-existent after 3.2.2. Very poor support - have multiple open tickets and no replies or help.
Poorly written if you can find it, must be converted from Russian or German into English.
I used this to: I have a gallery using JoomGallery with over 40,000 images in it and although TorTags would work for me, I just can't get them working together. I get Runtime errors and the settings won't save, so although I paid for this product, I will not use it anymore until it's fixed.

Very oeffective component

Very Good
Ease of use
Very strukturable logic of this
I used this to: I realize modernization and redesign of a major Russian aerospace magazine, and I inherited a huge archive of materials that are difficult to structure the traditional way. To create a complex a multidimensional system of relink helped me a lot TorTags component.
All the fonctionalities I needed, I have simple needs : just wanted to automatically get my tags content elements and have a cloud of them
Ease of use
out of box : just one problem with a tag with a # caracter in name (not in alias)
one first contact (quick and fine) the second one will come soon :)
enough complete for making it to work
I used this to: for a community site, needed a tag of cloud, automatic tranfert from Joomla! tag object, I wanted to change if needed the CSS appearance (not really easy but that's work), wanted also to have a nice and effective result search page (this one is fine and easy to parametize)
it works good
Ease of use
very easy
I used this to: To user that use pro version of this extensions
go to the area member and download the latest version (3.2.2.)
It resolve the problem about the article editor that broke TorTags
For me it work on joomla 3.5.1
Was super easy and I have hundreds of articles tagged. But with Joomla 3.5 came a slight redesign to the article editor that broke TorTags
Ease of use
Was really easy before it broke
No response from Tormix for help after the break. And I paid for this product which worked great until the change. Maybe no longer supported

Удобное добавление тегов

I used this to: ????? ????? ?????????, ????? ???? ???????????? ???????? ? ????? ???????? ?? ????????? - ???? ????????? ??????? ????????.
Previously I had version 2.50 which must have been free at that time. Since then it's been made paid - fair enough, the dev needs to recoup time spent. However, the free version is a waste of download time. It does little useful and the only reason I looked at it was that I needed to use Joomla 2.5 for another component. If I'd been able to use J3 I'd have never looked.

I like it!

This component is very easy to install and set up, everything works fine from scratch. There are some customization possibilities too, which made this free component perfect. I used the 1.3.5 free version. Now there is a newer 1.3.6 version for free download, I will try it later. Good work, thumbs up!
