Add-On Type(s)



Synchronize Solspace Tag tags to a custom field when entries are published or updated - or all at once - to make your tags searchable by the Search module.

NOTE: Tag Sync for EE2 has been made obsolete by Tag 4.0, but you can still use Tag Sync 2.0.1 to synchronize existing tags to your new Tag fields in older entries.

Tag Sync is an extension that works alongside the Solspace Tag module to automatically keep a specified custom text input or textarea field synchronized with each entry’s tags, making your tags searchable via the Search module.

You can also run a full synchronization of tags to your custom field by using the link provided on the extension settings screen for each channel. This is useful if you already have a bunch of tagged entries when you install the extension, and for periodic refreshes (i.e. when tags have been altered or merged using the Tag Manager, or if tags have been submitted via the public tag form, as these actions will not automatically update your custom fields).

Note that Tag Sync executes one-way synchronization. It will never interfere with the Tag module; it will only take data from the module and insert it into your custom field.

If you have Solspace’s Tag working, get this – it’s a lifesaver you’ll eventually need.
