Getting Tag Options from Field Values

Hey Kirby-Masters

I learned that Panel 2.3.0 introduced getting Select field options from any other field Now I wonder, how to get this working for Tags field options as well?

Thanks for your help,

So you want to display the values of another field as tags in another field? For example sync two tags fields?

The tags field does not have a query option? Do you want to create a custom tags field?

Edit: There is only an autocomplete feature which you can control with the index option.

This is slightly different but maybe answers your needs: How to fetch tags from another field (in this case on the parent page)

That would be gerat indeed! (And yes, I’d like to build a Tags field with query options.)

The problem I see with this (as already stated here) is that users would not know what they could enter into such a tags field, so from an UX point of view, I have some doubts regarding usability? :pensive:

Have you tried using this ?

It extends the checkboxes field which means you can query options from a remote location. It’s also a fun peak inside @distantnative’s music taste :stuck_out_tongue:

Hold on; my only request is having a Tags field that pulls its autocomplete proposals from values defined by a field of a batch of other pages —but not limit them to whatever users decide to type in manually. I see absolutely no ‘UX issue’ there. Or did I miss you point?

Oh, ok, than I got you all wrong, sorry. But then the index option might indeed be what you are looking for.

@texnixe: Can you give an example, of something like this:

  label: Tags
  type: tags
  separator: ,
  index: field
    page: /dictionary
    name: title
