Tags are useful way to organize data besides categories. We @intechnic implemented tag solution is a different ways in a different projects.
Here are sets of ideas, that might be common to all tag solution and can be a nice module at the end:
  1. any unit can have tags (no need to be a category or category item for that)
  2. tags can be managed (add/edit/delete) in central place
  3. tag name always lowercase (as a setting)
  4. tag validations:
    1. minimal/maximal tag count per item
    2. minimal/maximal length of a tag
  5. setting: deleting a tag (from tag list) cause
    1. tag being deleted in all used units
    2. warning shown, that such tag can't be deleted
  6. automatic total weight calculation for tag (usage count across all units)
  7. automatic unit weight calculation for tag (usage count from each unit)
  8. tag filter: see all unit items (e.g. in current category) that have given tag
  9. tag colud (links in tag cloud have size based on their weight)
  10. custom tag link:
    1. to page with all item list, that have this tag
    2. to page with tag description and possibly link to previous page (with usage)
  11. recalculate weight button - in case if weight is incorrectly calculated recalculate all weights
  12. tag type - project-specific tag types, that allow to divide tags into groups by their type

Hi Alex,


Yes, this quite full description of what we have for Tags so far. I think we should make this tags functionality as part of Core or perhaps a separate module (may be later when times comes for modules in 5.3.x)?

Of course. That's why I'm writing about it. Don't want to implement tags code on each project in a different ways myself.

I guess, the main question remains about where the Tags should go?

I believe, it should be in it's own Module, but we don't have well modulized structure just.

What's your take on this?

We can create a task for 5.3.0 if by that time more fine grained modularization scheme will be implemented.

Hi,


Let's create a task for 5.3.0 here and deal with modularization scheme on a separate note (probably in 5.3.0 too)
