Essay list filtered by tags

Hello Koken Team,

I have modified my theme so when I click on "Essays" in the navigation pane I generate a list of essays with short description instead of full text (I have copied "article"-layoutfile to "article-extract"-layoutfile and use variable {essay.excerpt} combined with a link to Read more.. This works fine so far.

Now I assign tags "German" and "English" to my essays and I get listing of essays with short description and tags on the browser's right border. Now, when selecting a tag "german" Koken generates a listing of all essays assigned this tag, but with full text instead of short description (excerpt), see

I have looked at many lens- and layout-files and do not find where I need to change again from using "article"-layoutfile to the modified one.

Can You guys perhaps point me at the right direction? And besides that, why are tags names shown with a leading hash, how can one get rid of the hash ?

Thanks in advance,

Meanwhile I have found that I need to modify the archive.essays.lens file to use the modified article-extract.html.

Now I can filter essays by language and get a listing with essays excerpt.... wonderful!

Cheers from Cologne/Germany
