    This query is about grouping tags and whether is it possible to extend tags like you can add custom properties to other SF modules like events/blogs etc.

    I have the following scenario as an exmaple:

    My blog posts can be tagged with the following tags: mouse, pc, table, chair, monitor, keyboard

    I have a database table called TagGroup:

    TagGroupID | Name
    1                  | Computer Equipment
    2                  | Office Equipment

    When I create a tag, I would like to assign a TagGroupID to it. so mouse, pc, monitor, keyboard would be have a TagGroupID of 1.

    On the frontend, I would like to display the tags by the groupings.

    Any ideas on how to implement something like this or a similar solution? Any help would be greatly apprecaited.

    Many thanks

    Would it be worth me just writing my own module that directly updates sf_CmsTag database with TagGroup association id?

    Hi Imran,

    The tag grouping is not implemented yet.

    I am going to suggest you something else though. In Sitefinity 3.6, we introduced the hierarchical categories. You may have a parent category, and sub categories. Having that said, here is the categories you could have:
    Computer Equipment -> Memory
    Computer Equipment -> Hard Drive

    Then you can assign your items to the Memory category. They will automatically be assigned under Computer Equipment as well.

    Other than that, we do not recommend working with the database directly, but if you need such a functionality anyway, then it will be probably worth to try with this approach.

    Best wishes,
