    I am trying to set up a TagsList on a page with the blog posts below it. I have two problems on this page:

    1. When I select any of the tags in the list, i get an error page with:

    Directory Listing Denied

    This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed.

    2. I would like the list to always be a list and not provide the option of appearing as a cloud. How do I remove the "display as" option at the top?

    Thanks.

    Hello Isabelle,

    1. You have not configured the control properly and when you click on a link the correct url cannot be resolved.

    You should set the following properties of the TagList control

    1. ProviderName - Blogs
    2. TaggedContentUrl - url to the page where BlogPosts control has been dropped.
    3.TagKeyType - ID
    4. TagItemKey  - BlogTagID

    The default QueryString keys are set under BlogPosts control >> Advanced >> QueryString Keys. If necessary you could change them, but they should reflect to the TagList control settings.

    2. You can map the external template for the TagsList control and remove/hide the link form the HTML - How to map a template. Another option would be overriding the control and accessing the link inside CreateChildConrols from where you can hide it.

    Best wishes,

    Thanks Ivan, I am no longer receiving the error. I am trying to find ascx and ascx.cs files for TagsList, but i can't find them.  Are they accessible?

    Thanks.

    Hi Isabelle,

    TagsList is a custom control. It does not have a code behind that you can access. The control is embedded into Telerik.Cms.Engine.dll. All controls have public templates - ascx files that you can download from your account >> Downloads section. There is an archive with all external templates.
    If you want to change the behavior of the control, you should inherit from TagsList and override some of its methods/properties
