Manage tags in TYPO3 Core
Allow editing and adding lightweight tags for any kind of record to identify records easily.
Characteristics of tags:
- Non-translateable - the same tag for all languages
- Reuse tags by suggesting existing tags
composer req b13/tag or download the package from the official TYPO3 Extension Repository.
You need TYPO3 v9 or later for this extension to work.
Add a database field for keywords/tags in your database table:
keywords int(11) unsigned DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL
For enabling tags in your TCA table of TYPO3, configure it like this in your database table (
'keywords' => [ 'label' => 'Keywords', 'config' => (new \B13\Tag\TcaHelper())->buildFieldConfiguration('tx_my_table', 'keywords') ] \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Utility\ExtensionManagementUtility::addToAllTCAtypes('tx_my_table', 'keywords');
As all tags are stored in
sys_tag and all its relations within
sys_tag_mm, you're on your own whatever
you want to do with tags in your system, however multiple functionality might be added later-on.
- Permission handling: Make certain tags "read-only" for editors, so they can not remove specific tags from a record.
- Allow to only search for tags on a per-pid basis
- Allow to configure the "pid"
- Allow numeric tag names
- Limit max number of tags for a specific field
- Use LLL labels
