Bug Description

Mahara 1.8.1

Hi All,

I use the journal tool regularly for my own work purposes, and use tags to I can add journals by tag to my pages.

I would like to see what tags I have applied a journal entry when I'm looking at the entries in a journal. As the attached screenshot shows - the post displays without showing tags used. I have to edit the post to see what tags I have used.

Easily seeing what tags I am using on posts in a journal helps me to get a clear sense of the taxonomy that is developing for that journal, and therefore keep it consistent.

Hi Shane.

I got partway through implementing this before I suddenly noticed the tags are already rendered on the right side of the page.

It doesn't seem like the best place to me... and adding a second entry to my test journal confirms that all the tags get bundled together on the right side - you can't see which relate to which post - so I'll carry on adding them to the display of each post (in addition).

Thanks Nigel,
I was thinking that with tagging being such a valuable way of organizing information having various ways to see them and discover them and the information they are attached to (the goal after all) is great to have in Mahara.
Thanks a lot for this.
My other wishlist item is that journals can be added to a page using multiple tags, maybe even exclusions.
I think Aaron and Robert are looking at that one.

Display tags in journal posts (Bug 1328739)

All tags related to a journal are currently displayed over on the
side of a page, but it is not possible to tell which tag relates
to which post. This patch adds the display of tags relating to a
post in the post itself.
