    Javascript is active. This error appears under "suggested tags" and "click tags".

    Alright, I figured this out. This plugin only works when three conditions are met:

    • You are using tags.
    • The tags are being used in a published post.
    • The tags are being used in a public post.

    If those conditions are not met, WordPress records the tag-use count as '0' and simple tags does not function.

    So, for the heck of it, to get suggested tags to work, lines 166-169 become:

    }
    			if ( $this->options['use_suggested_tags'] == 1 )
    				wp_enqueue_script('st-helper-suggested-tags');

    In what file do I need to change this? I get the exact same error ...

    I have the feeling there is a conflict between Simple Tags and another plugin, as Simple Tags seems to work fine on another blog I have (both running WP 2.7)

    Update: OK figured out to change this in simple-tags.admin.php in the 2.7/inc directory. But making this change does not solve my problem unfortunately. Any other ideas?

    I still get the "This feature works only with activated JavaScript. Activate it in your Web browser so you can!" both in Click Tags and in Suggested Tags.

    I had this message before too. And then I realized you have to have at least ONE tag in your database for the "suggested tags" and "click tags" to work.

    This happens in IE or Firefox. Here's some details from the browser errors:

    I have the same situation. Could you please tell me where to put these tags?

    I have the same issue, in both Firefox (3) and Opera (9.6) running under Ubuntu (latest). At the same time I also experienced another issue with my media upload/insert buttons disappearing (mentioned in another thread). No amount of rolling back versions helped with either problem.

    wzeallor - If you'd let us know the file name in which you made that substitution, I'd love to try it out. (and would be immensely grateful!)

    Go to tags...add one tag...and it should star working. It did for me.

    adding a tag didn't work for me, still the same error WP2.7 ST1.6.4

    I had this problem with two of my blogs. With one I simply added a tag and everything was alright, but the other blog wasn't so easy.

    It turns out that a plugin called "Position Yourself" interferes with Simple Tags. Disable it and add a new tag, and all will be well.

    Seems I figured it out. I've found some multiline (with \n char) tags in wp_terms. So, I just removed them and got it working

    I'm having the same problem with the "This feature works only with activated JavaScript. Activate it in your Web browser so you can!" Error.

    Not sure whats going on. Tried finding as many forums as possible about the problem.

    Any more suggestions? Also, where can I find the wp_terms file. This is a file right?

    same issue here too.

    it's interesting. I have 6 different worpress 2.7.1 installs with the same plugins added, including Simple Tags 1.6.4.

    All on the same server.

    Simple Tags works as expected on all but two installs.

    Only difference between working and not, that I see, is those not working are installed in the web root. Those who are working are in sub-directories.

    The other difference at the moment is cosmetic, being the themes used, but I don't see how that would impact the admin back-end.

    It appears you will get this misleading error until you have created tags and assigned them to articles or pages.

    I noticed that on my newly installed (empty) blog that this error occurred.

    I was creating just pages (no blog posts) and assigning simple tags to them.

    I went to wp-admin and the 'Posts' section and selected 'Post Tags'. It showed the tags in the right hand column.

    However, if I went to the 'Manage Tags' subsection, then no tags were listed.

    Perhaps this plug-in doesn't properly recognize tags if they aren't also assigned to a post (as well as a page)?

    ...I have just seen that others are reporting bugs with this plug-in when using v2.8 (and possibly 2.8.1 now?).

    Okay so I'm having alot of the same problems, however, this is REALLY starting to unwravel my Post.php in the admin panel.

    CLICKING ON THE FOLLOWING DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING:

    Screen options
    the "add button" under Post tags
    My Categories section no longer has a drop down with my categories, nor the option to add a new category
    If I try to add a tag under the Tags (Simple Tags) I get a 500 server error and then it just goes back to all the posts.
    And click tags has a "This feature works only with activated JavaScript. Activate it in your Web browser so you can!" Message
    Suggested tags doesn't even allow you to drop it down

    Oh and here is the Javascript error I have in IE8 running WP 2.8.4

    Howdy folks! I was having this problem with simple tags in WordPress 2.8.4. The problem was called by the plugin: wp-insert (a plugin used to insert adsense into blog content).

    Solution? I removed wp-insert from my blog. Now I have to find some other way to manage my adsense :-(

    These steps worked for me !

    This plugin only works when three conditions are met:

    * You are using tags.
    * The tags are being used in a published post.
    * The tags are being used in a public post.

    The error message is completely misleading and needs to be fixed in a future release. It had nothing to do with Javascript not being enabled on my site.

    I was creating a new site with just pages. I was applying tags to those pages, but they were not recognized and that error message was being shown in the click tags and suggested tags sections.

    My solution was to select 'mass edit tags' from under the Posts section and create all the tags I wanted there. This time, when I was adding or editing a page, I saw no error message and instead saw the tag choices.

    I am having the same issues with simple tags, and I tried the "3 Conditions" mentioned above, but that didn't help.

    Thus, suggested tags, click tags, and autocompletion do not work. Anyone find any other suggested fixes or other plugins which work with WP 2.8.5?

    I really love the functionality of Simple Tags and have used it for more than 2 years, but it has been awfully janky since the last few WP upgrades.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated...

    wzeallor had it right....

    Add the following to your functions.php file:

    if(is_admin() && isset($_GET['action']) && $_GET['action'] == 'edit') {
    	wp_enqueue_script('st-helper-suggested-tags');
    	wp_enqueue_script('st-helper-click-tags');
    }

    I had this problem and it was realy bugging me since my other WP installations worked fine.

    You have to enter at least one tag as stated above, however that is not the only condition.

    You have to enter the tag in the Simple Tags box and not the default WP tag box.

    You then need to refresh the page (save your work!!!). I would recommend clicking on "save draft" if your post is ready for the public, otherwise "update post" should do it.
