    Tag auto complete has stopped working


    I am currently developing a site in 7.12.4 and the tags has randomly stopped auto completing when entering a tag that already exists.

    Can anyone help me understand why this has happened?

    Kind Regards,

    Gary Henshall

    Hi Gary,

    I can't say i have seen that happen - I've just checked my v.7.12.4 install and it does work, so i don't think its a version thing.

    I would have a look in your browser develoment tools, and see if there are any errors. - tags are loaded by a call to GetTags (umbraco/backoffice/UmbracoApi/TagsData/GetTags?tagGroup=default)

    enter image description here

    this returns the tags (the group might change based on config) I would suspect you are either getting a conflit with another peice of javascript in the backend or if the call returns blank its a db thing.

    Hi Kevin,

    Thank you for your response :)

    After using your advice, i have found that there was in fact a response with the correct tag group and corresponding data.

    However there seems to be a error in the console in regards to a "Invalid Dataset"


    enter image description here Is this something i may have done that is causing this?

    Thanks for your help.

    Kind Regards,

    It seemed to be my naming conventions. I believe it was because i had spacing in my names... Changing it to "NewsTopic" rather than "News Topics" has seemed to work.

    Thanks Kevin.
