Nate Hunter created the topic: Merging 2 separate tags into one?
Is there a way to merge tags or batch edit articles to change their tags? We have a series of menu items that allows the user to drill down to news based on certain tags.

One of our editors has been using the wrong tag on the articles he has written for the last 6 months( I know x-( grrr...) and now its my problem Grrrrr...
So the menu item is not showing very many articles because they haven't been tagging the articles correctly.

So any ideas? is there a native solution? or do I need to get a plugin for this? is there one that someone has used in the past?

Thanks for your help.

The tag - item connection is being stored in this table.
You can replace the wrong tag's id with the correct one.

So where can I find this table?is there a Web interface? Or do I need to use SQL server or Navicat? Any recommendations? Can I have multiple tags with the same ID?

The id has to be unique.
In order to access the database you need an interface like phpMyAdmin or an application like SequelPro.

Prior to any actions you are highly advised to backup.

Hello,

and if we have 2 differents tag with the same signification, and want to merge them.
Like, for example, "réservation" and "reservation".

How can we do that ? Is there a tool to manage all of our tags ?

Thank you.

Regard.

Very useful, really waited for a an extension like that for years. I had over 13.000 tags on my site, now I have a little less ;-) Did work in Chrome, Firefox and even Safari with Joomla 3.8. - thank you.
