Joomla/K2 Tags Mod

1 response

Just a quick fix for a tag link issue I came across.

broken url:
domain.com/tag/two word.html

if you take the spaces in the URL and replace them with pluses (‘+’) it’ll work. For example:

fixed url:
domain.com/tag/two+word.html

tested and working on Joomla 1.5.15, with K2 2.1 and sh404sef 1.0.20_Beta – build_237

below is this file: /modules/mod_k2_tools/tmpl/tags.php
but it’s the same basic fix for the other files:
/components/com_k2/templates/default/item.php
/components/com_k2/templates/default/category_item.php

the key part is: <?php echo str_replace(' ','+',$tag->link); ?>

<?php

<div id="k2ModuleBox<?php echo $module->id; ?>" class="k2TagCloudBlock <?php echo $params->get('moduleclass_sfx'); ?>">
        <?php foreach ($tags as $tag): ?>
        <?php if(!empty($tag->tag)): ?>

                <?php echo $tag->tag; ?>
        </a>
        <?php endif; ?>
        <?php endforeach; ?>
        <div class="clr"></div>
