Questions About Tags

  1. I have a few questions about using the tags field.

    1. Is there a way to have validation limit the max number of tags that a form will accept?
    2. Is it possible to have AJAX tag suggestions as in wp admin?
    3. Is there a way to add a "choose from most popular tags" as in wp admin?

    Thanks!

  2. 1) Currently there is not a built in option for limiting the number of tags. If you wanted to do this you would have to write your own custom validation using the gform_validation hook.

    2) AJAX tag suggestions are not currently a feature, although it is a feature we would like to add in the future.

    3) Again, this could only be done via a customization. You could use a standard drop down or checkbox field to capture the data and then use the available PHP hooks to use that data as the tags for the post that is created.

    Hi Carl,
    I'm also interested in limiting the amount of tags users can put (only in certain forms/fields). Is there any code available already or can you point me in the right direction?
