1 WHY DO
YOU NEED
   TAGS?
Tags solve a problem
     you didn’t know
             you had.
Joomla 1.5 : The bad old days
   Fixed structure: Section, Category, Article
   Imposed limitations on the ways you could
    organize site contents


     Section                      Recipies



    Category            Lunch                  Dinner



     Article     Recipe 1   Recipe 2    Recipe 1    Recipe 2
Joomla 1.6: nested categories
   The biggest yay! moment in recent Joomla!
    history




   No more limitations on organizing content
Using nested categories
   An example: organizing recipies
   Something you couldn‟t achieve with 1.5:

Main level category                                        Recipies




    Category level 2                         Lunch                              Dinner




    Category level 3             Fast                Vegetarian                 Meat




        Articles       Recipe1          Recipe 2     Recipe 3         Recipe1            Recipe 2
However …
   Each article can be assigned to only one
    category
   Recipes site: you have to create multiple
    categories for “vegetarian” recipes
Main level category                                         Recipies




    Category level 2                          Lunch                               Dinner




    Category level 3              Fast                Vegetarian        Meat           Vegetarian




        Articles       Recipe 1          Recipe 2     Recipe 3         Recipe 1            Recipe 2
The problem with categories
   Sometimes properties (such as “vegetarian”) fit
    in more than one category

   Sometimes it‟s hard to keep the site structure
    simple and logical
     -- hard to classify content for content managers
     -- hard to find content for site visitors
That‟s the problem which is
      solved by using
What can you do with tags?

   As used in other CMSes:

    a label assigned to content

   The difference with categories: you‟re not

    restricted to a fixed tree structure

   Any article can have as many tags as you like

   Easier to classify and navigate content
A promising new feature
   An additional system to organize content:

                     Tag: „Vegetarian‟
Top level category                            Recipes




Category level 2                   Lunch                         Dinner




                      Recipe      Recipe   Recipe       Recipe            Recipe
     Articles           1           2        3            1                 2
2 JOOMLA
    TAGS
TUTORIAL
Let‟s try out Tags in a test site
   Install Joomla 3.1 or higher
   The final release will be available on
    joomla.org
   The current beta release is found on
    http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomla/frs/
Installing Joomla 3.1
   Let‟s create a „Recipe Repository‟
Joomla has been installed
   The output: a new, empty site
Optionally: changing color and logo

   Now we‟ve got a site we can fill with content
Adding content in three steps

   In Joomla, you‟ll usually follow these three
    steps:

    1       Create categories
    2       Create articles
    3       Add menu links
Step 1: creating categories
   In this example:
    1 top level category, 3 subcategories




   Recipes
     Breakfast

     Lunch

       Dinner
Step 2: creating articles
   Add a few articles (recipes) to each of the
    three categories: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
   Create a couple of „Special‟ articles
Step 3: creating menu links
   Three menu links of the Category Blog type:
     Breakfast,   Lunch, Dinner
The outcome: a website!
                     homepage
The outcome: a website!
                     category blog page
Is that all there is? Not any more

   Up to version 3.0:

     1. categories
     2. articles (+ Special articles)

     3. menu links



   In Joomla 3.1+:
     4.   creating and assigning tags
3 CREATING
       AND
 ASSIGNING
      TAGS
Using the Tags Component
    Components > Tags
Creating our first tag
   For our recipes repository:
   Tags > New > „Vegetarian‟
The tag has been added
   The list of tags appears in the Tags component
    screen
Assigning tags to articles


                   Open an article
                   Details > Tags
                   Type until the tag
                    has been found
                   Autocomplete - Enter!
Multiple tags per article
   You can add as many tags to an article as you
    like
A shortcut to creating tags
   Make a tag straight from the article screen
   Enter the new tag text in the Tags field
   Enter, Save, done!
4 WHAT
DOES THE
 VISITOR
    SEE?
This is what tags look like on the
front end
   Tag labels appear:
     Inteasers of Special articles
     Above the full article text
This is what tags look like on the
front end
   Click on the tag „Vegetarian‟
   The output: a simple list of titles
Improving the tags page
   Components > Tags > Options
     Show  tag name: Show
     Tag Image: Show

     Tag Description: Show
Showing article teasers
   Components
    > Tags > Options
     Item Images:
      Show
     Item description:
      Show
Is this all? No!
   You can display “tag results” in three different
    ways:
    1  Automatically: through the tag hyperlink
     2 Through menu links to tag pages

     3 Through two new modules
5 USING
       TAG
MENULINKS
Menu links pointing to tag pages

   Menu > Main Menu > New
   Three new Menu Item Types
Menu links pointing to tag pages

   Menu > Main Menu > New
   Three new Menu Item Types
      Tagged Items

      Compact list of tagged items

      List of all tags
Menu links pointing to tag pages

   Let‟s create a Tagged Items menu link
What‟s the output of the new
Menu Item Types?
   As an example: Tagged items
Customizing the menu link
   You can change the Tagged Items
    page lay-out through the Menu Item Options
    settings
Including multiple tags
   The Tagged Items menu link can also point to
    combinations of tags
Combining multiple tags
   „Vegetarian‟ + „Pasta‟ =
6 TAG
MODULES
Displaying tags in a module
   Apart from the new Menu Item Types for tags
    there are also two new modules for tags:
Using the Popular Tags module
   Module Manager > New > Popular Tags
The output of Popular Tags
   This is what the module output looks like:
Similar Tags module
   It doesn‟t display similar tags …
   … but it does display links to articles that have
    one or more tags in common with the current
    article
   Can be useful to direct visitors to related
    content (from „Pasta‟ naar „Pasta‟,
    „Vegetarian‟)
Similar Tags module
   This is what the output of the Similar Tags
    module looks like
7 TAGS:
    THE
VERDICT
Hoe good are Tags in Joomla?

   To say it‟s a great new feature would be an
    understatement …
   It‟s great, it‟s chill, it‟s dope, it‟s fresh!

   It‟s a combination of a component, Menu Item
    Types and modules
   Even nested tags are possible
   You can also tag the output of other
    components, such as Contacts
   Great for SEO (the findability of your content
    increases)
Hoe can you use them?
You can make it as simple or complex as you want

As an addition to categories
 Categories for the main „sections‟

 Tags for specific article properties



As an alternative for categories
 A full-blown, flexible system to organize content …

 You could even stop using categories
The art of tagging
   Help your visitor to easily find content: use the
    words that your site visitor would use when
    searching the site
   Don‟t add too many tags per article
   Don‟t use different tags pointing to the same
    content
   Don‟t use general („gerechten‟)
   Avoid „tag stuffing‟
ENJOY!

  • 6. Tags solve a problem you didn’t know you had.
  • 7. Joomla 1.5 : The bad old days  Fixed structure: Section, Category, Article  Imposed limitations on the ways you could organize site contents Section Recipies Category Lunch Dinner Article Recipe 1 Recipe 2 Recipe 1 Recipe 2
  • 8. Joomla 1.6: nested categories  The biggest yay! moment in recent Joomla! history  No more limitations on organizing content

However …  Each article can be assigned to only one category  Recipes site: you have to create multiple categories for “vegetarian” recipes Main level category Recipies Category level 2 Lunch Dinner Category level 3 Fast Vegetarian Meat Vegetarian Articles Recipe 1 Recipe 2 Recipe 3 Recipe 1 Recipe 2
  • 11. The problem with categories  Sometimes properties (such as “vegetarian”) fit in more than one category  Sometimes it‟s hard to keep the site structure simple and logical  -- hard to classify content for content managers  -- hard to find content for site visitors

  • 19. Optionally: changing color and logo  Now we‟ve got a site we can fill with content
  • 20. Adding content in three steps  In Joomla, you‟ll usually follow these three steps: 1 Create categories 2 Create articles 3 Add menu links
  • 21. Step 1: creating categories  In this example: 1 top level category, 3 subcategories  Recipes  Breakfast  Lunch  Dinner
  • 22. Step 2: creating articles  Add a few articles (recipes) to each of the three categories: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner  Create a couple of „Special‟ articles
  • 23. Step 3: creating menu links  Three menu links of the Category Blog type:  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • 24. The outcome: a website! homepage
  • 25. The outcome: a website! category blog page

  • 30. The tag has been added  The list of tags appears in the Tags component screen
  • 31. Assigning tags to articles  Open an article  Details > Tags  Type until the tag has been found  Autocomplete - Enter!
  • 32. Multiple tags per article  You can add as many tags to an article as you like
  • 33. A shortcut to creating tags  Make a tag straight from the article screen  Enter the new tag text in the Tags field  Enter, Save, done!
  • 34. 4 WHAT DOES THE VISITOR SEE?
  • 35. This is what tags look like on the front end  Tag labels appear:  Inteasers of Special articles  Above the full article text
  • 36. This is what tags look like on the front end  Click on the tag „Vegetarian‟  The output: a simple list of titles
  • 37. Improving the tags page  Components > Tags > Options  Show tag name: Show  Tag Image: Show  Tag Description: Show
  • 38. Showing article teasers  Components > Tags > Options  Item Images: Show  Item description: Show
  • 39. Is this all? No!  You can display “tag results” in three different ways: 1 Automatically: through the tag hyperlink  2 Through menu links to tag pages  3 Through two new modules
  • 40. 5 USING TAG MENULINKS
  • 41. Menu links pointing to tag pages  Menu > Main Menu > New  Three new Menu Item Types
  • 42. Menu links pointing to tag pages  Menu > Main Menu > New  Three new Menu Item Types  Tagged Items  Compact list of tagged items  List of all tags

  • 45. Customizing the menu link  You can change the Tagged Items page lay-out through the Menu Item Options settings
  • 46. Including multiple tags  The Tagged Items menu link can also point to combinations of tags
  • 47. Combining multiple tags  „Vegetarian‟ + „Pasta‟ =
  • 49. Displaying tags in a module  Apart from the new Menu Item Types for tags there are also two new modules for tags:
  • 50. Using the Popular Tags module  Module Manager > New > Popular Tags
  • 51. The output of Popular Tags  This is what the module output looks like:
  • 52. Similar Tags module  It doesn‟t display similar tags …  … but it does display links to articles that have one or more tags in common with the current article  Can be useful to direct visitors to related content (from „Pasta‟ naar „Pasta‟, „Vegetarian‟)
  • 53. Similar Tags module  This is what the output of the Similar Tags module looks like
  • 54. 7 TAGS: THE VERDICT
  • 55. Hoe good are Tags in Joomla?  To say it‟s a great new feature would be an understatement …  It‟s great, it‟s chill, it‟s dope, it‟s fresh!  It‟s a combination of a component, Menu Item Types and modules  Even nested tags are possible  You can also tag the output of other components, such as Contacts  Great for SEO (the findability of your content increases)
  • 56. Hoe can you use them? You can make it as simple or complex as you want As an addition to categories  Categories for the main „sections‟  Tags for specific article properties As an alternative for categories  A full-blown, flexible system to organize content …  You could even stop using categories
  • 57. The art of tagging  Help your visitor to easily find content: use the words that your site visitor would use when searching the site  Don‟t add too many tags per article  Don‟t use different tags pointing to the same content  Don‟t use general („gerechten‟)  Avoid „tag stuffing‟
