How get Tags in Joomla

Post by kbmaster » Wed Apr 03, 2019 7:58 pm


I have problem with module, I need to show on the page some articles, but I need to insert icons on the thumbnails, like 'video' or 'photo', to do this I thought I can take tag from joomla article, like video and make simple 'if loop', like "if tag is like video, insert icon of video". For now I make it in another module, where I check the category and insert properly icon, but I need to make 10 more modules like this on front page, and I need somethink whitch will work better and more universally. In attachment I add a simple, what I need to make. I see there is option to choose articles by they tag, so i need only that part of code to compare tags.

My code:
foreach($list as $item){
foreach($item->tags->itemTags as $tag){
if (($tag->title)=="video"){
?> <i class="fa fa-play-circle"></i>
<?php }
elseif (($tag->title)=="galeria"){
?> <i class="fa fa-camera"></i> <?php
else{echo $tag->title; echo ",";}

Thanks for any answers.

Maybe go by id.

if ($tag[id] == 1) {......}

I'm unsure how you have things organized.
