XES - you might want to have a look at BlogIt, which does provide list of potential tags in its custom edit form. It doesn't use AJAX; instead it gets all of the potential tags, shoves them into a PTV, and has that available on the entry via a bunch of javascript.

Hi, Michael -- I'm not sure what this comment is in reference to. I created this recipe to allow website visitors to tag wiki pages. No login needed, no use of the entry form. It had nothing to do with blog posts at the time and doesn't require the author to tag the posts (although the author could as well, after they're done editing the page). I still use the recipe, as a matter of fact, to allow people with a variety of access permissions to tag pages on some websites. I use it in my XESBlog bundle, so when I'm done writing an article I can just add (arbitrary, new, or old) tags to it. I'm using it on several business association websites for members to add business categories for their profile pages. It was originally invented for Similepedia, which no longer exists, but was supposed to allow web visitors to tag simile pages. I have not yet checked out BlogIt. I haven't really needed to. By all means, people can use whatever blog bundle or system suits them, but sometimes a website just needs an easier way to add categories to pages without having to give a person full edit permissions to the website. This recipe does it admirably well. XES July 17, 2014, at 02:47 PM

Over in AjaxEditSupport-Talk you were looking for tag-list functionality for TagPages. I'm not suggesting you use BlogIt, I'm suggesting you look at the code and demo for BlogIt, which has a tag entry box that provides a list of relevant tags when you start typing.

Thank you, I'll see if I can puzzle that over. XES July 18, 2014, at 03:41 AM
