Add multilingual_tags to your INSTALLED_APPS


Don’t forget to migrate your database

./ migrate multilingual_tags


To add tags to a model, you have to add the TaggedItemInline to that model’s admin. In your own apps, you can just do the following:

from django.contrib import admin

from multilingual_tags.admin import MultilingualTagsAdminMixin

from my_app import models

class MyModelAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
    inlines = [TaggedItemInline], MyModelAdmin)

This will render the inline admin form for adding tagged items.

If you want to add tags to a third party app, you might need to import its admin instead of Django’s ModelAdmin and then unregister and re-register the model. One way to do it would be this:

from django.contrib import admin

from multilingual_tags.admin import TaggedItemInline

from other_app.admin import SomeModelAdmin
from other_app.models import SomeModel

class SomeModelCustomAdmin(SomeModelAdmin):
    # be careful, if the other admin also defines admins, you need to add
    # them as well
    inlines = SomeModelAdmin.inlines + [TaggedItemInline], SomeModelCustomAdmin)

To get all the tags for an object, you can simply use the TagManager:

# Get all tags for a certain model instance
>> Tag.objects.get_for_obj(mymodel_instance)

[<Tag: mytag>, <Tag: myothertag>]

# .. or get all tags for an entire queryset
>> Tag.objects.get_for_queryset(MyModel.objects.all())

[<Tag: mytag>, <Tag: myothertag>]
