Hi Aske!

Thanks for that in-depth info. I haven’t been able to work on this project for the last few weeks, but I’ll be working on it again later this week. If I come up with anything worthwhile I’ll definitely contribute what I have. :-)

Best wishes

> Just to add on Marcin's suggestion. Even though this is a good suggestion I don't think we have support for an select editor loading values dependent on the element using AJAX. We do have it for the plugin editor, but that one is specifically customized for this and the generic selector editor doesn't support it yet unfortunately.
> As pointed out by Dominic you should be able to populate the tag values using node type configuration post processors, just be aware of the limitation that this is general for all the elements of the particular type and not the individual one. But it might be okay in your case since the media tags are always the same.

To do this I would like to have a property called “tag” displayed as a drop-down menu (select box) in the Inspector UI in Neos. The new content element type can be inserted on a page, but there it stops.
