Hello,

I am trying to make the "Article Tags (JForm- Tag) required and validated with the current list of tags.

How do I get it to require a selection from the Tag dropdown menu?

Thanks,

Jeff

The objective is only selection, the user can´t add new tags ?

Codigo Aberto,

We are not allowing the creation of new tags.

Is there a way to require at least one selection from the given list?  

See screenshot:  https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4967834/forum-postings/seblod/Screen%20Shot%202015-04-05%20at%2011.15.32%20PM.png

Thank you,

Jeff

Codigo,

I have it set to "required" but that is not stopping the form from being submitted.

What javascript code and where would I put it to validate com_tags?

Thanks

Jeff

Codigo,

No value, tag, gets saved.

Here is the backend showing that the tag field is empty:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/d55li9zyadm19g7/Screenshot%202015-04-07%2016.28.03.png?dl=0
