The Joomla 3.1 release date is quickly approaching and we are excited to see so many new developments. One feature we are especially excited for is the introduction of tags into the core of Joomla, enabling users to implement tagging across all content. When the update is released we are looking forward to many interesting developments with the tagging. According to Joomla we can look forward to innovative features such as:
- Simple and intuitive use
- Several layouts with multiple options
- Content unchanged by addition of tags
- Nested tags with a parent tag and unlimited children
- Core components with be integrated with tagging
- Can implement tags across content and extensions
Tags are easily found under the Components menu in your Joomla 3.1 back-end.
The Tag Manager allows you to quickly create, edit, and place tags throughout your site. You're in full control of your tagging job.
You can be able to select all the tags you have created while creating/editing your article.
All your existing tags can be quickly accessed from the menu.
Tags can be searched or viewed easily through the front end
Tags are compatible with the awesome T3V3 Framework which is open source.
These changes will offer developers more options in order to improve the users experience. This is only one of many new features coming to Joomla 3.1 and we are very excited to see the improvements that this update brings to the amazing Joomla platform.
