Tagging is now possible

Now I can tag this post

Sure enough, there is a tag option for this topic at the bottom of my posting screen.

There is an arrow at the top of my reply screen saying “Tagging is now possible”

But it does not allow me to tag when I reply.

However, if I go and edit the original post I can tag it then.

The doc says users can filter topics by tags etc. but I can’t find how.

Trying to tag. Same issue, message that appears like a hyperlink but doesn’t go anywhere.

Can’t tag my reply even on edit.

It is only possible for the first message of a topic. That makes sense, though.

In other words, a whole topic is only tagged once, at the beginning, by the author (although a mod can edit that).

I also found how to filter by tags: When you look at the list of topics, you’ll see tags. When you click on one tag, you get to the tag list!

My conclusion: we should totally use tagging. If the users don’t do it well, the mods can edit the first post of a thread. Since you only tag a thread once, it’s not a lot of work.

There is a setting, “Show a dropdown to filter a topic list by tag.” I made this change, now there is a drop-down that allows you to filter based on tags. Will add this to the change log.

Where is the dropdown? I can’t find it.

On the main screen, where you can click on Categories…beside this is now the ability to filter by Tags. So, if you; instead of seeing a specific category, want to see all posts that have a specific tag, you can filter by the tag instead.

Nice!

I’d call that a team tag:-)

This tagging is really pretty cool. If everybody tags their new topic it will make finding things very easy.
