Show tags in Mini Frontpage ?

I am using Mini Fronpage Pro. Is it possible to show tags ? I can show category and custom fields. But I would like to show tags also. Tags are clickable to show all articles with simmilar tags

    Hi audunbrekke, unfortunately adding tag list to each article items in the minifrontpage module is not as easy as it sounds. It will add potential significant resource hog for the module and potentially will slow down the website, especially when multiple module is published in one page.
    So we're not going to add that feature for the moment. Sorry about that.

    Ok. To make shure there is no misunderstanding: I just want to show which tags each article is tagged with in the mini frontpage module. The joomla blog article listing has this option. See example here: https://www.hyperspace.no/turblog/blogg . The tags are in the blue boxes.

    Yes, that's exactly.
    That page you referred is a com_content component. For displaying tags, com_content calls different component / com_tags (1 call)
    To show tags in minifrontpage the module will call com_content + com_tags (2 calls) inside other component (depends on what component/page the module is published).
    So because minifrontpage is just a module that is intended as a less complex parts of a joomla page, I think adding tags to minifrontpage will just adding potential performance issue. I want to keep the module simple and fast as possible.
