Hello,

This has come up before, similarly, but I hope there is a simpler solution for it:

I have the category display of my items set up, looks fine. Now I also want to set items into the menu by tag, easy enough. But the display of items by tag is totally different from the display by category - I need both to look exactly the same.

Is there an easy way to do this? Rather than overriding tag.php and reprogramming it all from almost scratch ...
The tag page display override should also automatically adjust to any parameter changes for categories. Is that possible with reasonable effort?

Thank you!

Hello,
Unfortunately I will let you down.
Since these are different views you will need to override the tag.php file.

ok, thanks for your quick reply. At least it saves me from looking further.

Maybe a future feature? I've had this issue before, and I think I totally reworked tag.php then, years ago ...

You can add it as a feature request github.com/getk2/k2 so we can have a discussion over it :)

I totally agree with Ralf!!

I have tried to configure tag.php file but with no success, as I am not very familiar with it.
I am following the discussion at github but there are no updates there :(

Is there somebody that can help?
Thanks

Hello Villy,

Unfortunately this is a feature which requires feedback and also it requires several hours of development.
You can comment on the thread so it receives more feedback.

I am trying to display the rest of the item's tags in tag view. I have added the code below, but with no result.
Any suggestion?
Thanks
<span><?php echo JText::_('Also tagged under:'); ?></span>
		  <ul class="catItemTags">
	<?php foreach ($this->item->tags as $tag): ?>
<a href="<?php echo $tag->link; ?>"><?php echo $tag->name; ?></a>, 
<?php endforeach; ?>
		  </ul>
		  <div class="clr"></div>

Hello Villy,

By default the tags are not available in this view github.com/getk2/k2/blob/master/components/com_k2/models/item.php#L96

You can add them to the tags by adding the appropriate view check || ($view == 'itemlist' && $task == 'tag')
and the tags will be available.

PS, You are missing a <li> tag.
