Using Tags in an Extension

The page contents as currently written are substantially incomprehensible. It requires not so much copy-editing as re-interpretation into every day English. GreyHead (talk) 10:28, 24 April 2014 (CDT)


Also bind() on component's table class on JTable should be overridden. Metadata should be json encoded before preStoreProcess.

public function bind($array, $ignore = '')
  if (isset($array['metadata']) && is_array($array['metadata']))
    $registry = new JRegistry;
    $array['metadata'] = (string) $registry;
  return parent::bind($array, $ignore);

For people not using JModelAdmin, a hint to that code would be helpful:

if ((!empty($data['tags']) && $data['tags'][0] != ''))
   $table->newTags = $data['tags'];
