Admin Management Xtended
Would like to see all available tags as checkboxes... (3 posts)

    This is a wonderful plug-in. All the features work great and the interface is pretty much flawless.

    What I would love to see though...

    Instead of just a text field to type in new tags, and instead of a tag cloud to pick only the popular ones, I would like a check box window (like for the categories), so I can pick from all my available tags.

    Maybe something that builds the list from post_tag without regarding the count, then adds to the taxonomy count in addition to (of course) the term relationships?

    I don't know how hard that would be to implement into this plug-in, but if you could... this would be heaven.

    Thanks again for such a brilliant plug-in!

    Well, the plugin mostly does it's work in the post/page listing page, so it would be kinda overkill to generate a list of ALL available tags for each of the posts/pages... that'd be something for the Post edit screen IMO. Actually you even have auto-complete enabled for the tag input field provided by Admin Management Xtended, so that might be a little helper. :)

    But the idea could make it into a dedicated plugin.

    Yeah, I do see your 'overkill' point, but like the idea of a dedi plugin for it.

    I know that a lot of people have a gazillion and one tags, so for them it would probably be overwhelming unless the suggested dedicated plugin accessed and managed the 'term_group' availability in the wp_terms table.

    I already input most of my current and future tags to describe the theme of my content, though, and the tag cloud is so limiting in that capacity.

    And to be honest, even the auto-complete function doesn't access my tags like I want, but that is definitely no discredit to your plugin. Everything else works brilliantly.

    I know what I want... I just don't have the time or training to write amazing plugins like yours :)

    Thank you for your response, Alphawolf. You're a great asset to the WP community.
