MetaData, Search & Indexing, Tags & Clouds

Through this component, and a few plug-ins you can add tags to virtually
all components using the editor in their fields.

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)
- And much more tags futures...

The latest features and updates:
- New indexes for fast search
- Compatibility TorTags with "Save and Copy" (copy tags in new articles)
- Tagging with "Batch Copy" (copy tags in new articles)
- Create connect tags. You can add a new tag everywhere where there is already specified another tag.
- Migration tags: Import tags from JoomlaTag and JX labels (from joomla 1.5).
- W3C tags
- Updated settings for components: Added option to show TorTags form for add new tags in editor only in BE, only on FE or both; Added option for state field customization.
- Updated settings for tag. Added option published/unpublished tag.

Thank you for using our component.

I purchased TorTags the other day and now I see there is an upgrade. Unfortunately, from what I can see, there is NO way to download an upgrade of the product from the developers site or Avangate which they chose to use for software purchases. Great product, poor download and update implementation.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your review. You are very fast :) For that reason, we give you our new version - free (already sent to your email). Immediately after the release of new versions, we just do not have time to refresh the page. Now is possible to update your versions on the site.

Great extension

-Works well

-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!

Owner's reply: 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 bought the full version and requested the TorTags in another non-content based component. I got reply in 2 hours with full demo and support. Kudos to the developers. This component has a great potential to grow.

Owner's reply: Thanks for a great review. We are always happy to help you with our component.

good job
