OK so Ive finally started working on the final big part of a potential first release! Notice how the news items now have their associated tags displayed at the bottom! This was actually quite easy for the news items, fortunately e107 stores the current news id in a cache and can be accessed by the plugin using getcachedvars().
Other e107 areas may not be so easy, current plan is to use e_Query to derive the id. Need to have a think about this.
The tags were added to the news template via a shortcode so site admins will either be able to do the same, to ensure associated tags appear for all items, or they could manually add the shortcode in each time they post.
It would be nice to automatically insert these some how but im not sure how without hacking e107 core files and I dont wish to do that!
