    Every link i click on to download the MU-Tags plugin returns a invalid project error on muwpdev. Could someone direct me to or share the latest release?

    This is something I use.

    I posted this earlier on this thread:

    Heres a quick fix to show only a part of each post.
    Just place this in some php file in mu-plugins, or in your themes functions.php file.

    function content_intercept($content) {
    //how many characters to show from each post
    $maxchars = "200";
    $newcontent = ''.substr($content, 0, $maxchars).'...';
    return $newcontent;
    }

    if(tag_results()) {
    add_filter('the_content', 'content_intercept');
    }

    A couple questions.... Why do I keep getting repeat posts with my tags? Here is an example.

    Also, is there a way to get an rss feed from mu tags?

    Thanks

    bwinn: Try using version 0.2b.

    There is a way to get rss feeds from mutags. Here's an example.

    It's an addon to mutags which I might be releasing in a few months.

    Hey how did you get that smooth ajax login box? I want one!

    Haha, thats pure js and css :)

    Here's how it's done:

    function toggle(){
    var loginbox = document.getElementById('loginbox')

    if (loginbox.style.display == 'block') {
    loginbox.style.display = 'none'

    } else {
    loginbox.style.display = 'block'
    }
    }

    Then just give this attribute to a link that you want to use as a "toggler": onclick="this.href='javascript: toggle()'"

    Sorry to bump this thread again but I've noticed many 404's in my logs coming from the tags install.

    The weird part is that when I click on the tags I do get a list of the posts so I dont know why it randomly gives 404 for valid tags :(

    I notcied if you spit out a list of Pages, it includes the tag results page on that list, and if clicked, returns a null result. Which may give those 404's.

    Nice plugging but it does not work on IE --- 404 when clicking on the tag itself so I have to refresh it about 2 or 3 times

    Um, I've used it recently on a site and had people check it in IE. Worked for us.

    A great plgin, worked out of the box for me.

    One question though. How hard would it be to display, not a tag cloud, but an alphabetical list of all tags?

  15. mrhenry

    wildebees: Not hard, but it requires some editing of the code.

    Open up mutags.php in a text editor and find the function named "mu_tag_cloud" near the bottom. Scroll down a bit and you should find a part with some "echo" statements. Thats the bit you need to edit.

    Thanks Mr Henry. All advice is much appreciated

    To be more specific you need to add an "echo '
    <ul>';" tag before the foreach loop and the same with </ul>
    after the loop and add
    <li> and </li>
    before and after the tag links. Then you need to go to you mutags settings page and select to arrange tags by name.

    Anyone have a suggestion on how to get either the author_id or email for each tag post so the Gravatar for each post on the tag_results.php can be displayed using get_avatar( user_email , 30 ); for example?

    No one willing to help with getting the Author Avatar for each tagged post result?

    <?php echo get_avatar( $post->post_author, 48 ); ?>

    I used the function posted above to limit the number of characters per post to 200. If it ends a post in the middle of a link, it breaks the template. How do I remove the formatting and links in the post diplay on the tag page?

    Also, does anyone know how to make the tag links from the subdomain blogs link to the main blog's tag pages like WordPress.com does? I asked on another post and no one knew an answer for that.

    I've found another little odddity. I tagged a post with "93" as I was writing about my Saab. When I hover my mouse over it it shows http://canalplan.blogdns.com/tag/93 as the URL but when I click on it I end up on http://canalplan.blogdns.com/blog/2007/06/03/tagging/

    So I think there must be some weird redirect going on somewhere.

    It doesn't like numbers.

    I thought it might be length related so I created a post with the following tags:

    1, 12, 123, 1234, a, bb, ccc, dddd

    The character based tags work but not the numeric.

    Time to go digging in the code methinks!

    I've just noticed that the tags work fine but the pages are delivered with a page title of "Page Not Found" for some reason.

    k, dumb question:

    I just tried, making a page with the slug taguri, used a defautl apge tempalte, that displays mu_tag_cloud()
    instead of the_content but when I browse to the page, I get: Results for
    Not Found
    Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.

    as if I would be looking at a results page and not at the apge with the tag cloud.

    then I decided I had enough for tonight, and made teh results apge into a draft, and when I surf to the page using the page id not pretty permalinks Isee tags on it !?

    compeltely confused and using the latest version of this plugin. will try again tomorrow and post urls here...

    ok, here is more info:

    if I publish the page showing my tag cloud it doesn't work, see screenshot: http://screencast.com/t/DRiGnrytrF

    if I make the page into a draft, it works, screenshot: http://screencast.com/t/7v86pQQ1Qh

    any ideas what to make of this behaviour?

    btw. using the latest modified version by dsader from http://wpmudevorg.wordpress.com/project/MuTags and btw. the import tags and import categories doesn't work on my installation. New saved posts update the tags indeed.

    On the results page for any tag, the links to the psots containing those tags is of the numeric format rather than pretty permalinks.

    one more issue: the tag_results.php tempalte file, needs some further modding, I noticed this function: function get_the_mutags() {
    global $wpdb;
    $id = get_the_id();
    $tags = &get_posttags($id);
    $thetags = "";
    foreach ($tags as $tag) {
    $thetags .= 'category_nicename.'">'.$tag->cat_name.' ';
    }

    which displays the posts tags underneath just appends the tags to the current url, thus leading to wrong links. can anyone help make this into working urls? I am not sure about the syntax, it should be something like TagOpt['tag_base'].'/'.$tag->category_nicename

    Probably I miss something crucial because the links on the first page lead me to a wasted page which would be nice to redirect to the actual page of the plugin:

    http://wpmudevorg.wordpress.com/project/MuTags

    Thank you

    When I installed it I put the MUTags file in the mu plugins folder and created a new page called tag_results.php in the theme folder for the main blog (which might need a little editing to fit in with the style of your these) and set the slug to be tag and it works (well apart from if you give it numbers which seem to upset it) :

    http://canalplan.blogdns.com/tag/chester

    Not sure why you have taguri in you URL.
