Joomla! Help Support Warrington Cheshire Manchester Merseyside UKContent Tags is a Joomla! Component.

We include it in our guide's Navigation section because the Component helps website visitors find what they are looking for.

Here is how The Joomla! Project describe Tags.

"Tags in Joomla! provide a flexible way of organizing content.

The same tag can be applied to many different content items across content types (articles, weblinks, newsfeeds, contacts, and categories).

Any item can have as many Tags as desired.

Once an item is tagged with a specific tag, browsing to the link for that tag will give a list of all items that have been tagged with that tag."
