Hi, 

I am using the tagcoud filter block and would like to be able to indicate what tag has been clicked on/currently viewing. Is this possible?

Add this to code injection - Footer

<script>
(function() {
  const tagCloud = document.querySelector(".sqs-tagcloud");
  if (tagCloud) {
    const currentPath = location.pathname;
    const selectTag = tagCloud.querySelector(`li a[href*='${currentPath}']`);
    if (selectTag) {
      selectTag.style.fontWeight = "bold";
    }
  }
})()
</script>

Thanks for the reply @bangank36, I appreciate it! 

I changed the current state to be an underline. However, whether bold or underline, it's not quite working. It appears only if refreshing every time, on every page. Even on the main blog page where neither tag has been selected, one shows selected on refresh.

@tuanphan @bangank36 Is there a solution that would work under Design > Custom CSS? I am trying to do the same thing - when someone clicks a category at the top (all, motion graphics, or editing), the selected/currently viewing category should stay the hover color. Here is the custom CSS I already applied to the categories, if it makes a difference. Here is my website, pass: pqrs. Thank you!

//tag cloud
.sqs-tagcloud li a {
    color: rgb(67, 45, 199);
    background-color: #00000;
    font-style: regular;
    padding: 5px 10px;
    border-radius: 4px;
    font-size: 18px;
-webkit-transition: .15s ease-out;
-moz-transition: .15s ease-out;
transition: .15s ease-out;
}

//tag cloud:hover
    .sqs-tagcloud li a:hover {
    background-color: rgba(173, 161, 242, .2);
}

This css code only sets the style when you hover the tag cloud.

If you want to set the hover style for the active tag, we need to implement javascript to work around with it

Hello,

Based on the turn off Ajax loading suggestion in the thread, I'm assuming this script is for 7.0.

I'm using 7.1 and the first tag is always bolded, no matter which ?tag= has been clicked. Do you have any suggestions for how to make the script work in 7.1?

My site is https://shop.digglesphotography.com

Thank you for any help you can offer.

Warren

A programmer friend helped me by adjusting the above code to get it to work on my site. I'm assuming these adjustments are needed to get it working in SS 7.1.

The code below will add an underline to the active tagcloud anchor tag
 

<!--- Add style="text-decoration: underline;" for currently selected tag filter -------------------------->
<script>
(function() {
  const tagCloud = document.querySelector(".sqs-tagcloud");
  if (tagCloud) {
    const currentPath = window.location.pathname + window.location.search;
    const selectTag = tagCloud.querySelector(`li a[href*='${currentPath}']`);
    if (selectTag) {
      selectTag.style.textDecoration = "underline";
    }
  }
})()
</script>

Instead of adding a style, I want to add a class. With my limited JS knowledge I was able to accomplish it by modifying the above script like this

<!--- Add class="tag-active" for currently selected tag filter -------------------------->
<script>
(function() {
  const tagCloud = document.querySelector(".sqs-tagcloud");
  if (tagCloud) {
    const currentPath = window.location.pathname + window.location.search;
    const selectTag = tagCloud.querySelector(`li a[href*='${currentPath}']`);
    if (selectTag) {
	  selectTag.classList.add("tag-active");
    }
  }
})()
</script>
