Kentico 8: Tag Selector broken?

Kentico Developer asked on April 10, 2014 07:44

Hi guys,

I'm trying to understand how the tag selector works in Kentico 8.

I've added the tag selector to a document, and it displays the tags associated with it's corresponding tag group, but when I type in new tags, the CMS_Tag table is not updated. New tags are not added, and the tag count is not incremented.

Do tags only work on special system defined fields, or am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug in Kentico 8?

I personally prefer this behavior, as it closer suits what I wanted to do on this project anyways, but I want to make sure that I'm not relying on a broken feature to lock down tag-moderation, which may be fixed in a future release/update.

Cheers, Pete

I believe you need to look in the CMS_DocumentTag table to find the link between the page/document and the tag. The CMS_Tag table simply holds the tag info and tag group link.

You'll also want to ensure that page has the Tag group assigned in the Properties>Metadata.

If you look at the schema for CMS_Tag, you'll see there is a "TagCount" column - this is the count i was referring to, and entries are not added to this column from non-system fields
