ok, I think it does depend on the lft and rgt fields in the table as I mentioned in the first thread.

There is a point which is not yet clear for me in tag import and export.

In a Menu system, when you Order the menu by Ascending, you see root menu, then next level, and under each level you have child levels.


I have imported tags, also all Path and parenting set right, when I order tags by Ordering Ascending, I get totally chaotic display of tags, I dont see an structured system of root, next level, and children under each level etc.

My question is why this happens? would effect performance of the site in anyway? and if it is possible to solve it?

Thank you.

Hi,

lft, rgt field doesn't have anything to do with parent child, These are used for ordering. You can enter values for these columns in the below order in CSV file for lft and rgt respectively:

1 2
3 4
5 6


Thanks
Daniel

Hi,

I am trying to import tags. I exported the table and trying to set a custom profile.

The main issue I have is how to deal with lft and rgt fields in the table. It seems that these are numbers showing connectivity between tags such as parents and childs, etc

If I skip these two, and try to get the tags with specific parents imported, the tags are imported although in definition they show right parents but I can see in the list that they do not show up under the parent category (which is most likely because they do not have any value for lft and rgt in the table).

If I skip the parent in importing and try to set the parent manually after import, when I save, I get an error (not showing any error, it just says error).

So wondering if you could help, it is joomla 3.3.6.

Thank you
