      Description

      The "all tags" link in the Tags block currently takes the user to the context page they are currently located. If on the front page, it simply redirects the user there; on a course page, it refreshes that page. It should take the user to a list of all tags available on the site (http://site/tag/search.php, for example). Similarly the "course tags" and "my tags" links should direct the user to a list of those respective tag lists.

          Thanks for suggesting this.

          Your description is not entirely clear. Perhaps you could rephrase it.

          If you can propose a code solution, that will help others who may have the same need and will increase the chance of this improvement/feature coming about sooner. If you are able to provide a patch or links to your Git repository branch, please add a patch label so we will spot it.

          Michael, thanks for your update. The following is from our client who is requesting this enhancement. Hopefully this will clear up things.

          The plugin Tags block on my site is a system level block set to display throughout the entire site. On the front page, the “All tags” and the “My tags” links go to the main site address (http://site). The “All tags” should take the user to a list of all the tags currently available throughout the site (I am not sure what Moodle page this currently is, but am guessing the http://site/tag/search.php, could be the All Tags location). The “My tags” link should take the user to a page in Moodle that lists all the Tags they have created. (I cannot even locate a Moodle page where all user tags are displayed together).

          This issue also exists in course pages. The “All tags”, “My tags”, and now the “Course tags” links go to the current course page (http://site/course/view.php?id=XXX). Similarly, the “Course tags” link should take the user to a page with all the Course tags and the other two links should take the user to their respective pages described above.

          We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.
