Taxonomies 1.3.2-pl

Released May 18, 2015 by everettg_99

Bringing Taxonomies to MODX Revolution: add Categories or Tags to any MODX page so your MODX site can support all the classifications and tagging that WordPress can do and more!  Unlike other TV-based solutions, this Extra uses dedicated custom tables to provide flexible and efficient searching and true support for hierarchies.

Hierarchical based searching is supported.  getPagesByTerm will now by default retrieve pages in the inferred hierarchy.  E.g. searching for pages in the "Mammals" category will return pages in the "Dogs" or "Cats" category.  You can override this behavior by setting the &exact_matches parameter.  See the wiki for exact usage:

Page associations are visible in the Manager.  When you view/edit a Term page, there is now a tab for "Pages" which shows which pages have been associated with a given term. 

Show/Hide Taxonomies tab by Template.  New System Settings have been added to support showing/hiding the "Taxonomies" tab according to both the resource type OR the template in use.  See
