[Solved] Announcements and Tags don't play together well (TaggingEnhanced)

If I have an announcement with a tag called Tag1, and I click on Tag1 in the tag list, the announcement tagged with Tag1 doesn't show up (in fact none of the announcements show up) when a Category or Tag page is pulled up. Is there a way to show the announcements with Tag1 to also show up when Tag1 is clicked? I'm using Vanilla, and all my plugins are downloaded in the last 7 days.

    Oh boy... :-S

    I cannot give you a solution, but I can give you how I found what you need to change:
    Open this file:
    You'll see the text : Questions tagged with so this is the main view file for tags
    This is the important piece of code:

      <?php include($this->FetchViewLocation('discussions')); ?>

    Then open this file:

  • Thank you.

    I'm looking at those files now, but haven't been able to find what to update. Anyway, I'll continue to dig in. I thought maybe if someone has done it before, I can get some quick help.

    I'm able to make some progress but not without some unwanted side-effects :)

    I changed the following line in applications/vanilla/models/class.discussionmodel.php :


    $IncludeAnnouncements = FALSE;


    $IncludeAnnouncements = TRUE;

    and was able to get the relevant announcements to appear when a tag was clicked. But there's a problem. Back on the main discussions page, the announcements are appearing twice - once at the top (as expected), and once again in the discussion list sorted as per the date they were posted.

    So, the search continues ...

  • Ok
    Also in vanilla\plugins\Tagging\class.tagging.plugin.php

    Look for line 100-102

    $Sender->AnnounceData = FALSE;
            $Sender->SetData('Announcements', array(), TRUE);

    Maybe set announcedata to TRUE. Keep trying and make backups, so you can easily put back what you've changed.

    I don't know if the TaggingEnhanced plugin will give you what you need, but you might want to look at that one too.

  • Actually what you suggested was the first thing I tried, but it didn't seem to make any difference. Let me look at TaggingEnhanced. Thanks again.

    On the TaggedEnhanced plugin page, it says:

    PS: Bug where announcements are not shown when tag filter is on

    This bug can be solved by editing a line in the vanilla\models\class.discussionmodel.php

    Change this line from:
    if (!isset($Wheres['w.Bookmarked']) && !isset($Wheres['d.InsertUserID'])) $this->RemoveAnnouncements($Data);


    if (!isset($Wheres['w.Bookmarked']) && !isset($Wheres['d.InsertUserID']) &&!property_exists($this, 'FilterToTagID')) $this->RemoveAnnouncements($Data);

    But it didn't work. I'm wondering what FilterToTagID property is. Do I need to set this in the configuration file? Maybe this fix works only with TaggingEnhanced.

    My issue seems similar to

    OK, problem solved with TaggingEnhanced. The above code change works only with TaggingEnhanced.

    @UnderDog - thanks for your help.

  • I'm wondering what FilterToTagID property is

    You'll find out someday and then you'll be able to add it to the Vanilla Wiki, I presume.
    Just a hint : Look in the MySQL database for the tagging tables.
