When I create an Article I choose an appropriate Tag from my Taxonomy List and save the article. When I click the tag after I save the article I get a list of articles with the same tag.

But how do you make a Basic Page work this way? I've researched Manage Fields and Manage Displays in admin-structure-types-manage and I CAN choose a tag and save it with the Basic Page...but I can't click on a tag on a Basic Page and get a list of all Basic Pages with the same tag.

Can you assist?

You probably have your field being displayed as Plain text. To display as links:

  1. Go to your content type and Manage Displays
  2. Find the Tags field and make sure the Format column has the Link value

Note that I'm assuming that you added the Tags field to your Basic Page content type and it's showing up in your page.

    Yep, just what I was about to write. The other thing I'd mention to the OP is that he might be getting confused once he does get a list of content tagged with the term he clicked. It will be a list of all content in the site tagged with that term (regardless of content type), so it will be a mix of Basic Pages and Articles. – Aaron Aug 12 '15 at 20:08
  • Thanks, yes, I've got the Tags field: field_tags, enabled in Manage Fields and in Manage Display the Tags are in Region: Content, Label: Inline; and Format: Link with the # sign. The tags do appear when I create a Basic Page. But still no joy...I can't seem to get any "Basic Page" to appear when I click a Tag link. I can access a Basic Page by creating a Menu Item...but not a Tag. – Aaron Thain Aug 12 '15 at 20:33
  • Could you double check your Tag field type? Go to Manage Fields and make sure it is Term reference. – typologist Aug 12 '15 at 21:27
  • Now I'm confused, I thought that you could NOT click on them? Can you actually click on them? – typologist Aug 12 '15 at 21:29
  • Yes, my Tag Field Type is Term Reference. And yes, I can input a Basic Page and save it. The tag appears at the bottom of the Basic Page. I have input two Basic Pages, both with the same Taxonomy string from my Taxonomy List. But when I click the Tag at the bottom of either of the Basic Pages, I go to a page with the Taxonomy Term at the top, but no content below. – Aaron Thain Aug 12 '15 at 21:44
