Alter Tags

Displays item tags in backend lists and adds tags for Joomla! users.

You can add tags for Joomla! users: assign tags in backend user edit page and see item tags in backend user list.

You can add item tags column in backend articles and categories lists, set a limit of displayed tags.

You can configure background and foreground colors for a specific tag and see colorized tags in backend tags column.

Optionally, add tags column in backend lists for 3rd-party extensions which support tags and follow native Joomla code standards (but no guarantees).

Works perfectly with our AJAX Toggler and AJAX Toggler Pro extensions.

Installation and configuration is simple: install the extension, next edit "System - Alter Tags" plugin and save settings.
