How to Show All the Articles With a Joomla Tag

Besides categories, Joomla tags are your best option for organizing your content. You can even consider Tags to be better than categories. A Joomla article can belong only to one category. A Joomla article can be associated with as many tags as you want.

Joomla tags also work across extensions. If you create a Content Category, you can only use that with articles. However, tags work with Content, Contacts, News Feeds, and multiple other extensions.

In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to create a module showing all the content that has a particular Joomla Tag.

  • Go to Extensions > Modules.
  • Click New.
  • Click "Articles - Category":

Articles > Category module

  • Click on the "Filtering Options" tab:

Modules: Articles - Category

  • There is now a "Tags" field present.
  • You can now publish this module, and it will show all your articles (and contact forms, news feeds etc) that are using this tag.
