Top Left Text cha

Web & App Development

I think it's great that you now have the ability to add tags to Joomla articles. But, am I the only one that's so annoyed by the auto-fill feature of the tags that I can't stand to use them? It's extremely hard to create tags. It changes the tags when you put them in. Also changes the tag while you're typing it so it ends up a bunch of jarbled text much of the time. I feel like I'm fighting the field every time I try to use it. It's beyond me why someone would take a cool feature and ruin it like that.

Anyway, done ranting. I'm going to try to find a way to turn it off or override it via a tags template modification.

I haven't really dug that deep into the templates, but if I find where it is and can get rid of this nuisance - and actually make the field useful, I'll post again with the solution.

Here's a workaround... When the Ajax changes what you are typing, just keep typing. Hit enter, type it again, hit enter, etc. It might take 2 or 3 times typing the tag you want to add before it actually doesn't change it. But then, you can just 'close out' the garbled text ones and ones that you don't want.
