Re: tru_tags: A tagging plugin for textpattern

Nothing wrong with it Els – works fine. Just tested. The line endings were already Unix, I use Text Wrangler and that is the default line ending I think.

I likewise had no problem installing tru_tags 3.3 from the code that jstubbs posted.

Good to hear that! Apologies for causing confusion then.

I’m trying to use tru_tags to display search results by section, rather than in one long list.

I’ve found my own solution to this problem. Instead of calling tru_tags_handler for each section, I call article_custom for each section and then use the value of tru_tags_tag_parameter as the keyword query. Exempli gratia:

<txp:article_custom section="sectionA" keywords='<txp:tru_tags_tag_parameter />'  />
<txp:article_custom section="sectionB" keywords='<txp:tru_tags_tag_parameter />'  />

Update: Of course, I just realized my solution fails if the tag has a space in it. For instance, tru_tags_tag_paramter returns “two-words”, but I assume article_custom would only return a match for “two words”

christopheradams – try using '<txp:tru_tags_tag_parameter striphyphens="lookup" />' – that will spit out the tag parameter exactly as it was originally typed (with or without the dashes)

Truist, thanks for your response. tru_tags is a very well thought-out plug-in.

I had noticed the usage of striphyphens for display purposes but had glossed over the “lookup” attribute.

My specific case is that none of my tags (“keywords”) are hyphenated. It would appear that the links generated by tru_tags_cloud and tru_tags_from_article always link to mysite.dom/tag/two-words/ and that the value of '<txp:tru_tags_tag_parameter striphyphens="lookup" />' is therefore also two-words, which does not match anything in my database.

What did work for me however is '<txp:tru_tags_tag_parameter striphyphens="1" />'. For example:

<txp:article_custom section="SectionB" keywords='<txp:tru_tags_tag_parameter striphyphens="1" />' limit="1000" />

However, it seems this would break if I had mixed-use cases (i.e., if some of my keywords used hyphens and some used spaces). I vaguely recall a warning about not having mixed spaces and hyphens in the keywords, so I’ve committed to using spaces. Do I have this right?

Again, thanks for your help. Your mention of striphyphens pointed me in the right direction.

Hm, “lookup” should have done the right thing. Are you using v3.3? Maybe there’s a bug.

You have this almost right. There is a warning about mixing spaces and hyphens in a single tag. For example, a “tag like-this” is bad. But you should be fine to have some tags with hyphens and some with spaces – so long as “lookup” works. If “lookup” doesn’t work, then your best best is to standardize on one type or the other.

Yes, I am using v3.3 ; I didn’t start really using tru_tags until this version.

One thing to keep in mind is that I’m not doing a tag search based on a query that the user enters into a textfield. I’m doing a search based off of the links generated by the tag_cloud.

So, let’s say my keyword is “two words”

The tag cloud will then generate the text “two words” which is a link to http://mysite.dom/tag/two-words/

If I click on that link, the value of <txp:tru_tags_tag_parameter striphyphens="1" /> is two words which finds a match.

In the same case, the value of <txp:tru_tags_tag_parameter striphyphens="lookup" /> is two-words, which will not find a match.

However, I found that if I manually type in http://mysite.dom/tag/two words (yes, with a space!) then striphyphens=“lookup” does find a match.

So striphyphens=“lookup” seems to be looking up the literal value of the URL (or wherever it derives the string from), and not the “real” value of the tag.

Is this not as it should be?

Re: tru_tags: A tagging plugin for textpattern

Hi Nathan,

Lovely plugin (even tho next para is a support Q, I really do mean that ;)

I just posted a Q to your /trutags-usage-instructions page at rainskit.com, please let me know if that was the wrong place.

Cheers, -Alan


At LAST I’ve cheerfully donated to the core devs at #TXP. I only wish I were able to give more. Thanks to the devs and ALL fellow TXPers. -A
