User permissions for the tagging system

Post by SchoolsICT » Thu Dec 07, 2017 2:32 pm

Hi everyone,

I have a client who is using a site that makes use of the tag system. They have requested that we enable only certain users to be able to tag articles. I have had a look at global settings and could not see a way of doing this, I could only find the option that turns tagging off altogether. Is there a way of specifying who can use tags at any level?

Many thanks in advance

Hi,

It's not possible to do with using Joomla core, You can however trying doing it using Custom code if you like.

Wrong it can be done.

Components >>> Tags >>> Options ... Permissions ... They follow the global Permissions for existing User Groups. You can set to deny if you want Author, Editor and publisher not to be able to create/edit them. Alternatively set up Alternatives of those groups and Allow creating etc. of Articles in the Article options ... then create respective chuild user groups and edit the Tags Options as you will.
