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:

A great part

I would like to thank the developers for this component. Use it JoomGallery. Separately, many thanks to the technical Support issues that helped solve a small problem.


Using TorTags in Joomla 2.5 since version 2.5 (September 2012).

Advantages: Add any number of tags to articles, ability to integrate not only Joomla (com_content), but also with other components, convenient management of all site tags on a page, plug-in for Joomla search, integration with WYSIWYG editor TinyMCE, built-in styles for the design of tags (labels), access to the style sheet tags directly from the administrative zone, Joomla ACL, tag cloud for modules, User-friendly interface.

Disadvantages: There is no way to automatically create tags based on the text of the articles on the site. Last update of the product 28 February 2013 (for TorTags 3.0).

Support: The first time was great. But the last few months is too long to answer questions.

I chose this component because it has a lot of options and opportunities. The latest version support multiple languages.

Engaged in web technologies since March 2007. Use Joomla since December 2009.


Great tagging system!

I install on almost every joomla website i run. Persian of Farsi language is not supported in the main meta data of joomla, so this is a must-install component for me. thanks a lot

Owner's reply: Thank you for great review! We're pleased that our component is useful for you! Happy Tagging!

Finaly what I was looking for.

A realy feature rich and efficient Tag system for joomla 2.5. This component, along with the search, finder and content definition plugins, proved to be the perfect solution for my site.

I recently switched from other Tag Solutions without any major issue. I was able to replaced now all this different Tag Solutions within Tortag and can highly recommend it and I Will go definitively for an Pro Version.

+ good Extension and great concept, the configuration options are very good "out of the box" as it is

+ this was very easy to install & customize and does what's "advertised".

+ migration from other Tag Solution just went smooth and saved me a lot of time

+ easy to use module, (my favorit is randomly)

+ results of Tag output is html validateted and in a good page layout.

+ comes with a lot of useful plugins.

+ works good with Joomla core SEF.

+ fast communication & helpful response from Team.

- Doesnt make coffee yet... :-)

Owner's reply: Wonderful! Thank you! Perfect review! (we're a little embarrassed) P.s. and if there a strong need, we'll try create functional for make a coffee) Happy Tagging!

Superb component. I chose from the many options, but TorTags the most loved. A support team is working very well. Pleasantly surprised with the new version 3.0. and support for Joomla 3.0. Thank you!

Owner's reply: Thank you! We try to keep up with all joomla and third-party updates. Happy Tagging!
