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

Thank you for using our component.

I'm an experienced Joomla user and have been very pleased with this component.

I had one issue installing the component and one other small request - and got very quick and helpful support to get it working just as I needed.


Owner's reply: We're happy - when you're happy. Thank you for your recommendation and great review!

I am using the full version a couple of months now and i must say that although there are a number of functionality improvements that could be added to this extension, it WORKS GREAT, it WORKS AS ADVERTISED and the SUPPORT IS AMONG THE BEST I HAD SO FAR, and I've been around since mambo...

The developers will answer your questions and even adapt code if needed. Great stuff so far.

I RECOMMEND this extension for those that need the "multi-categorisation of articles" or simply article tagging.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your recommendation and great review! Happy Tagging!

Very good so far!

I'm using the free version but so far very good. It does what it says and it does it right. The only thing I miss in this free edition is the possibility to show the related articles without going to the search page.

Owner's reply: Thank you! We'll try to do it. Happy Tagging!

nice work

really a nice work. thanks to everyone who has worked on that.

i have a question. when i hit a tag it brings a search result page with some options like categories, "search only here" etc. i want to bring the results with no options, just a list of articles. is that about the tortags or search options.

note: i use the free version

Thank you for your excellent extensions. It's working on my Joomla! 2.5.6 site.

Owner's reply: Thank you for good review! Happy Tagging!

I'm a Joomla newbie and this was the first extension I ever installed. It worked right out of the box, I didn't need to adjust anything at all. Installed it, created a new article and started tagging. Wonderful! Also, when I contacted the developer with a question, I received a friendly & helpful reply within hours. Keep up the good work!

Owner's reply: Thank you. We'll always help you to configure our component. Thank you for your great review.

I tried the free version and it worked out of the box in content articles.

However, I could not get it working in Virtuemart 2.0.6. After sending a mail to the developer I received instant support.

They identified a problem related to VM and fixed one of the plugins. All been done within 2 hours or so.

This is a valuable service considering this extension comes for free.

The component is very simple to set up, if you follow the examples on their website.

The free version is a bit limited. Better go for the full version, the price is absolutely fair.

Owner's reply: Thank you! We'll always help you to configure our component - if there are any problems. We guarantee the safety and speed. Thank you for your review!

It would be greatest extension for displaying and sorting tags in joomla..

But when I try to pass W3C validation after your extension usage it shows 56 Errors, 19 warning(s)...

Owner's reply: Thank you very much!!! We have fixed almost everything...

Great component

Great component and perfect support! Thank you for fast help.

Owner's reply: Thank you for good review! Happy Tagging!

Hello Everybody,

I was in the search on a tagging extension that would allow me to tag images in JoomGallery as inherently it did not boast such features. TorTags promised such capabilities of being able to seamlessly integrate with 3rd party components and deliver it did.

Through some timed and excellent support system I was able to accomplish my objective and it now works fantabulously.

It definitely is a great component and I would recommend it to anyone in need of such an extension. Happy Tagging!

Owner's reply: We're always happy to help everyone achieve their goals with our component. Thank you for your recommendation and good review! Happy Tagging!
