Tags deleted are still shown



I use DNN 6.01.01 and latest tag cloud. After deleting a whole Ventrian article, the keyword tag still shows after 2 days. You can actually click it and display not found (from Ventrian NA).

I have disabled the cache, restarted DNN, cleared the cache, nothing.

I have deleted the instance of tag cloud module and REadded it again. It still shows that keyword.

Could that point to a problem of News Article ?

More tests:

ALL keywords of DELETED articles are shown. No matter what.

Thats not a Problem of my Module. The Tags in the News Module are not saved for an single article because they can be reused in other articles. Normally there is a Flag for an Tag that shows how often the Tag is used in the News Items. However the Count is not updated when a article is removed or the tag is removed from the article.

The issue isn't the tag cloud, it's in the NA tag table where the tags aren't removed when an article is deleted. I think it's because the tags can be reused numerous times, and deleting them would casue a loss of ALL relationships with the tag. I've posted on Ventrian asking for input on this some time ago, but no answer or work-around yet.

I have posted to Ventrian support forum and got back a reply that it could be a bug and will be fixed.

@intelligent you could "push" my request also if you could, by posting to that new thread and asking to be somhow fixed.

Funny, I just finished doing just that. Good bump to me. Thanks

I changed the status of that issue to fixed, because its not a problem of my module
