    Hi,
    Some way to use Tags cloud as multiselector for GC Modules tags. I lovely to include in one Designer to make more friendly tags selectors adding tags in one array to use later to select the News.
    It's posible to use standalone for GC Modules or need complete new implementation? Thanks.

    Hello Pierre,

    Generally, it is possible. Here are the basic steps you should take:
    1. Get all tags using the CmsManager:
    2. Including these tags in some clickable container. When you click on these tags, they should go to another container (like selecting only the ones you need). You might use Javascript for this. You could also show each tag as checkbox.

    3. For all items in the list, make a filterExpression like:
    filterExpression: tag.Name="Tag1" AND tag.Name="Tag2" AND ...

    You can use this both on frontend and in the backend. On the front end, you should have a custom ContentView control, while on the backend - Custom Designer.

    Kind regards,
    Georgi
