Template: Moments, getting the tags to show on the homepage

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Hi. I'm setting up a blog using Joomla and the Moments template. My homepage is set to category blog so that all articles under the blog post category show up. It's single column, so altered from the Moments layout displayed in the live preview, but one thing I noticed about the preview is that the tags are showing from what appears to be the home page, and I'd like that for mine. Unfortunately, I've tried tweaking every setting from global configuration on down to get the tags to show and nothing is working. Am I missing something? Is there a module or component I'm missing?

Hi

Are they not showing both in the intro and the main article view?

They show in the main article view, but not from the main page. If I click on the linked title and view only the article and not the main page, yes, I see the tags.

I'm sorry, I'm not really a programming wiz or anything, my husband is better with this, but he's stumped too.

Paul,

Sorry for the delay, I was having a fight with Apache2 not serving my site on my public IP. I got that worked out. You should be able to see the site at: www.kissmyirish.net

Thanks in advance!

I think the issue might be that we're not using the template exactly as intended. We are only using the required modules because we couldn't figure out how to use the Zen modules.

The tags in question are depicted on the demo page in the attachment.

In addition, we'd really like to figure out how to get the three bar icon to the left of the Menu selector.

Ah thanks Michael,

They are just the standard Joomla tags and we are using the featured Joomla layout. Perhaps if you need us to look at the setup you could create a ticket with J login details.

For the button if you have JB Type installed and published it should just automatically display.

Thanks

Hi Micheal,

Just set up a blank joomla install myself to test this
- can you change the link type to "Featured Articles" instead of blog

Cheers

I'm back with another question. So attached, I have a screenshot from the Moments demo showing the tag icons, and I have a screenshot from my webpage where the tag icons are squares instead of the little tag icon. How do I fix this? I'm not using K2 or Zenkit.

Paul,
I've put the site back up. It's www.kissmyirish.net. We figured out the issue with the tags, so that's no longer an issue. However, we still can't get the little icon next to MENU to show up. Any thoughts. The site is online for you to look at. Thanks!

Can I just check - did you confirm you have JB Type installed and enabled?
