Using tags in the admin
By default if you have a :class:`TaggableManager` on your model it will show up
in the admin, just as it will in any other form.
If you are specifying :attr:`ModelAdmin.fieldsets`, include the name
of the :class:`TaggableManager` as a field::
fieldsets = (
(None, {'fields': ('tags')}),
Including tags in :attr:`ModelAdmin.list_display`
One important thing to note is that you *cannot* include a :class:`TaggableManager`
in :attr:`ModelAdmin.list_display`. If you do you'll see an exception that looks
AttributeError: '_TaggableManager' object has no attribute 'name'
This is for the same reason that you cannot include a :class:`ManyToManyField`:
it would result in an unreasonable number of queries being executed.
If you want to show tags in :attr:`ModelAdmin.list_display`, you can add a
custom display method to the :class:`ModelAdmin`, using ``prefetch_related`` to
minimize queries::
class MyModelAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
list_display = ['tag_list']
def get_queryset(self, request):
return super(MyModelAdmin, self).get_queryset(request).prefetch_related('tags')
def tag_list(self, obj):
return u", ".join( for o in obj.tags.all())
