Revert the look of Tags after an update to Joomla

Post by SPDJoomla4 » Sun Oct 30, 2022 1:07 pm

Is there any way to find out everything that has changed between versions of Joomla?
I have been testing an update from 4.1.5 > 4.2.4 and I have found a difference in how a tags are being displayed in articles.

The challenge is that my page builder has also updated so I am not sure where the change came from so I'm not sure where to ask for help.

In case anyone would be interested. In the old version as you can see on this page - https://piningforthefjords.co.uk/catalo ... ding-guide
...that tag list has a Tag icon

If I inspect the page while hovering over Fallout 4 tag I see this code
Old Version

Code: Select all

<li class="list-inline-item tag-20 tag-list0" itemprop="keywords">
   <a href="/catalogue/resource-tags/fallout-4" class="btn btn-sm btn-info">
      <i class="fas fa-tag" aria-hidden="true"> </i> 
      Fallout 4
   </a>
</li>
Doing the same thing on the test subdomain
https://rctest.piningforthefjords.co.uk ... ding-guide

New Version

Code: Select all

<li class="tag-20 tag-list0" itemprop="keywords">
 <a href="/catalogue/resource-tags/fallout-4" class="">	Fallout 4 </a>
</li>
The <i> tag is no longer there and it seems a class list-inline-item has been removed from <li> tag

If that is part of the problem, any way I can put them back?

The code you are referring to comes from the Helix Ultimate framework and the file that contains the code is tags.php that is located in the directory \plugins\system\helixultimate\overrides\layouts\joomla\content.

You could override this file by copying and pasting the above mentioned file to the directory \templates\shaper_helixultimate\overrides\layouts\joomla\content. You could make appropriate changes to this file and you would be seeing the same behavior before you updated the files.

I have attached the modified file that I tested for your reference.

Following are the list of images during testing. You could notice the differences in how the tags are displayed.

(a) Joomla core tags with template Cassiopeia

(b) Tags in Helix Ultimate template - Original

(c) Tags in Helix Ultimate template - Overridden

Wow, thanks so much for the detailed response.
While I do vaguely remember I had to do something to get tags even displaying in Articles, I couldn't find any notes on it, my bad.

I have learned a lesson not to wait so long to do basic updates/testing and obviously take better notes :-)
Cheers
