The Tags app is where you manage content tags – keywords or terms assigned to an item of content, see Content tagging.

This app manages content tags, which are different from marketing tags. Marketing tags – advertising or analytics code snippets that you insert on web pages – are managed using the Marketing Tags app.

The content-tags app is installed by the submodule magnolia-content-tags-ui.

The app stores nodes of the type mgn:tag in the workspace tags.

Usage

Go to Tools > Tags to open the app. 

The Tools app group that the app belongs to is only available to the superuser role. This is configured in the app launcher layoutEditors can only add and remove tags using the Add tags field in content app browser or detail subapps, once tagging is enabled

The Tags app has two subapps:

  • Tags browser – Provides a tree/list view of all tags stored in the JCR repository's tags workspace:

    In the browser, you can:
    • Add tags.
    • Rename tags.
    • Delete one or multiple tags.
    • Access the dependencies viewer that displays all the content items a tag is applied to (Show tagged content action).
    • Search for a tag or tags. 
      The search is case-insensitive, forward-looking and its logic is applied to the node representation of the tag in the JCR repository's tags workspace (not to the actual name of a tag).
      This means that if, for example, you have both a history tag and a History tag, the following may occur when searching:


      Search string
      Returned result(s)
      Name columnPath column
      history

      history
      History

      /h/hi/history
      /h/hi/History

      /h/hi/history
      /h/hi/History
      /h
      /h/hi
      /h

        h

      /h
      /hi<no results>*
      story<no results>

      * Because no path beginning with /hi was found.

  • Dependencies viewer – Shows which items are tagged with a particular tag across taggableWorkspaces (see Configure content dependency in the content-tags configuration). To open the viewer, doubleclick a tag in the browser or use the Show tagged content action.

    Each dependency listed is a clickable hyperlink that you can use to quickly open the tagged content item.
