    I have four projects/sites sharing a database, and all seems to be working ok.  But I've noticed that if I want to have "Cat1" or "Cat2" in both News, Blogs, Events, etc... I have to retype them in any/all modules.  This goes for Tags too.  So, is it possible to share either "Categories" and "Tags" across modules?

    Hi Randel,

    This is not possible at the moment. We have it logged in our system though, as a feature request.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Kamran Saleem,

    All provider data shared across multiple websites that uses the same database is shared. This means that the all items are the same and once you change any of the item this will reflect in the other websites.

    Perhaps we've crossed wires.  I was asking whether there is now a solution to sharing tags and categories between modules on the same site...

    Hi Kamran Saleem,

    Categories and tags cannot be shared between providers in 3.x versions.
