Geta.Tags In EPiServer 7.5


I have used geta.tags since its inception but for some reason when moving over to episerver 7.5.  I just get a textbox.  I don't get anything other than that.  Has anyone else ran into this issue.  I have the following in my model(ContentType)

[Display(Name = "Blog Post Catgories", Order = 800),
        public virtual string Tags { get; set; }


I am not what sure would cause this.  I have the include module and what not added from nuget and still, to no avail....  Any help would be appreciated.

Could it be that 7.5 doesn't has support for legacy editors? Now you have to write them i Dojo.

I am looking at this issue now and will add support for 7.5.

It uses MVC with default routes. If you do not have MVC routes set, then you should add them.

Here is default routes for MVC:

public class RouteConfig
        public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes)

                name: "Default",
                url: "{controller}/{action}/{id}",
                defaults: new { controller = "Home", action = "Index", id = UrlParameter.Optional }

    And register them in Global.asax:

public class Global : EPiServer.Global
        protected void Application_Start()

            RouteConfig.RegisterRoutes(RouteTable.Routes); // <-- Register routes
            ViewEngines.Engines.Insert(0, new CustomViewEngine());
            ModelBinders.Binders.DefaultBinder = new BetterDefaultModelBinder();
            MvcHandler.DisableMvcResponseHeader = true;

Maybe I was under the wrong impression but thought episerver added these as default but as normal, i must be wrong.  Thanks for your work on this Maris.

I´ve added it as a bug: Since the module should register the route for the controller (explicitly not using rely on the default route).
