OrderedTags

  • Author: Six Apart

  • License: Artistic, licensed under the same terms as Perl itself

Overview

Adds order to entry/page tags.

MT sorts tags alphabetically by default; the OrderedTags plugin maintains order of tags as saved upon entry/page save or edit.

Provides two tags:

  • <mt:OrderedTags> - loop tag to output tags in order
  • <$mt:OrderedTagsFeaturedTagName$> - function tag to output a specific tag, first by default other specified by index attribute.

Tags

OrderedTags

Block tag returning tags in the order which they were saved.

<mt:OrderedTags glue=', '><a href="<$mt:TagSearchLink$>"><$mt:TagName$></a></mt:OrderedTags>

Use the <mt:EntryTags> loop tag to output tags in alphabetical order.

Warning: Entries/Pages saved prior to adding this plugin will have the current alphabetical order preserved.

OrderedTagsFeaturedTagName

Function tag to output specific tag. Default is first tag.

1st tag: <$mt:OrderedTagsFeaturedTagName$>
2nd tag: <$mt:OrderedTagsFeaturedTagName index="2"$>
3rd tag: <$mt:OrderedTagsFeaturedTagName index="3"$>

Installation

  1. Move the OrderedTags plugin directory to the MT plugins directory.

Should look like this when installed:

$MT_HOME/
    plugins/
        OrderedTags/

Requested Features

  • Deprecate the tag OrderedTags in exchange for sort_order and sort_by attributes on the EntryTags tag.

    • sort_by - ascend (default), descend
    • sort_order - label (default), order, etc

    Example:

    <mt:EntryTags sort_order="ascend" sort_by="order" glue=', '><a href="<$mt:TagSearchLink$>"><$mt:TagName$></a></mt:EntryTags>
