How do I set up Product Tags in VirtueMart?
Product tags can be a great way to boost your store’s visibility and organization. Fortunately, setting up product tags in VirtueMart is relatively easy. Once set up, you’ll be able to assign tags to your products quickly and have a better organized and more functional store.
Step 1: Install Plugin or Component
The first step is to install a plugin or component that supports product tags in VirtueMart. Some suggest using the JoomlaXTC TagCloud plugin, which is free and easy to install. To use this plugin, download it, install it to the Joomla extension directory, and activate it. Alternatively, there are components like Tag Groups, Yireo Tags, and K2 that offer support for product tags.
Step 2: Create Tags
Once the plugin or component is installed, the next step is to create a set of tags. This can be done by navigating to the tags section in your Joomla administrator and adding the tags you would like to use. It’s a good idea to limit the number of tags you create to make it easier to quickly find and assign them to products.
Step 3: Assign Tags to Products
Once the tags have been created, the next step is to assign them to products. This can be done by navigating to the product in the VirtueMart administration and selecting the tags that should be assigned to it. This process can be time consuming, so it’s important to set up a tagging system that makes it easy to assign tags to products quickly.
Step 4: Publish or Show Tags
The last step is to either publish or show the product tags. This can be done by a plugin or component setting, or in some cases by customizing the product page code. Publishing or showing the tags can be an important step in helping customers find specific products and can improve search engine visibility.
