tag_count: change the number of tags that appear by default. When only a subset of tags is shown you’ll also get a “more” button.
categories_page_column_count: this controls the number of columns on the page in total. Note that when the browser is less than 768px wide, all the content will stack into a single column.
tag_column_count: the number of columns used within the tags section
hide_categories_column: enabling this will hide the categories, this may be useful for sites that want to focus on tagging
categories_column: the column categories appear in
categories_row: the row categories appear in
tags_column: the column tags appear in
tags_row: the row tags appear in
topics_column: the column topics appear in
topics_row: the row topics appear in
Note that the column and row settings accept values that work with grid-column and grid-row… so for example, by default the topics_row value is 1 / span 2, this means topics start in row 1, and span across 2 rows. So as seen in the screenshot above, the topics column is as tall as both the categories and tags columns, which are only 1 row high.
The row and column settings grant a lot of layout flexibility. With a few changes you can change the layout to something like this:
Thank you for creating and sharing this out @awesomerobot. I am confused and would love some handholding to create this layout on our instance. I want to exactly replicate this screenshot. Would you be willing breakdown what each setting needs to be set at for that?
and @awesomerobot, how can I sort them by name rather than count?
and is there a setting which makes showing all tags all the time, rather that having a More button? @awesomerobot
@awesomerobot Hello Kris. Sounds like you might be able to guide me on a new anomaly. If you can great, otherwise, I am at ease with starting a new thread.
After a few days of stability using the theme component which adds tags on the left side of our /categories page, this morning all the names of the tags have disappeared and it looks like this! I have also attached what it looked like after we successfully installed the component and set it up the way we like it best.
What do you think is causing this behavior?
What steps can I be taking to troubleshoot?
I know that I can ever so easily revert to the original /categories page and set it up again. I need help from others who have more experience than me. First asking for support.
