It would be better if the actual tag search field was there instead of a link.

Edited to take back the thanks for making this modification comment due to his ignorant reply below.

Your remark was uncalled for and kind of childish.

I was pointing out that your mod would be more useful if it were to place the tag search field there. The old zoints tagging system did this.

I am sure I could go in and change things around to get this function...but then again why would I want to?

Mate, it was not childish, it is in response to the original callous remark that you originally posted before you made your edit (you added an extra 2 lines) which should not have been posted in the first place if you were not going to use my hack. I am fed up of people who do not release anything here making snide comments about hacks that people who do release here for free.

If that was not your intent, then you should not have posted it in the first place. The extra 2 lines you added in put it in an entirely different light, so I am not apologising for anything, as I was replying your original one line comment.

So, before posting comments in the future, please consider the impact of your comments on the people you are posting to/about.

After waiting around for this to be made either officially or unofficially I decided to make it myself. I don't release Modifications though. Jelsoft really should be making this as an official part of the forum package.

The biggest downside to the template hook system is that many people create mods that actually use them :)

I have moved my navbar into the header and now this mod will not automatically update it.

Can you give me some instructions on manually adding the link? Like the correct URL etc.

This seems like a very useful mod...Thanks!

as said Boofo, This hack is now obsolete, as the latest Beta 6 contain this link in the Search Block... the exact way this hack is acting...

Is it possible for us to display the tags in the sidebar of forums?
If so, could you please share the code as i haven't come across any mod related to it?

Anything is possible, but I have not looked into it, and probably will not.

So, unfortunately, you will have to look elsewhere.

You could always make a request in the Modification Requests (Unpaid) (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=112) forum, and maybe a coder will take up the challange for you :)
