I would like to create a list of entries that have NOT been tagged by with a specific tag group. Does anyone have an idea how to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance!

Hrmm, with ExpresionEngine native entries tag, you can use the word not to indicate what you don't want to see. It's possible Solspace reused this logic. Have you tried adding this parameter to your tag?

tag_group_name="not groupyoudontwant"
  • Hi! I tried using "not" with tag_group_id and tag_group_name - both did not work. But thanks anyway for the suggestion!

One way to do this, though not very practical if you have a lot of entries (for performance reasons), would be to add a Tag:Tags template tag into a Channel:Entries loop. Then set it to search for a specific Tag group ID/name, and have a no_results conditional in there. So your code would look something like this:

{exp:channel:entries channel="news" limit="500"}
        {if no_tag_results}
                Message saying it doesn't have tags from this tag group and/or link to add some
