I think the user should have a little more flexibility in giving out the tags of a specific post.

The patch attached basically provides the same functionality as a simple plugin I made (still pending at, for more information see Data Division), which is enabling the user to completely disable linking the tags or allowing a custom tag-URI to be used.

What are you trying to achieve here exactly?

We already provide a way for the user to configure the base part of tag permalinks on the Permalinks option page at the bottom.

Could you provide a better description of the individual problems you are trying to solve.

The idea about making the_tags() a little more flexible:

a) Allow non-linked tags to be used somewhere (someone asked for this on #wordpress, because he wanted to use the tags in his meta-keywords, but this was not possible because they are linked).

b) Using a custom $taglink is not about different permalinks (diff. tag-base), but about having tags listed by the_tags() e. g. linked to a different site ( as an example).

This has been idle for 2 years - I think it's fair to say there's no traction/leave for plugins?
