Thread tagging is a fairly new feature on the Corpus and a feature that many are unfamiliar with so I thought I’d put a quick HOW TO together to help those not in the know…
For those that do not know what a tag is, check out this link on Wikipedia.
To make a tag:
At the bottom of a thread below the Social Bookmarks, but above the Quick Reply box you’ll see the following.
Click the EDIT TAG link and it will open up a field where you can then edit or add in tags.
If no tags are present it will look like this:
I put in three random tags as an example there. You can add up to 5 additional tags (up to 25 max). Adding in multiple tags requires a Comma (,) to separate them.
If tags already exist in the thread you can edit them as well.
That image is pretty self explanatory.
In both cases, once you have edited or added the correct tags to the thread click the [SAVE CHANGES] button to apply them.
In the Navbar (the main options menu near the top of the forum) where you can do normal searches there is an option for searching tags.
Simply click on the “tag search’ link and it will take you to the Tag Cloud…
The 93 most popular tags are shown in the tag cloud, the bigger and bolded ones are the ones used the most, however there are more then 93 tags, so feel free to use the tag search option if you are looking for a given keyword.
Not all threads are tagged however, so if you do not find the tag you are looking for do a normal search for it. Once you find what you are looking for, by all means, go back to the begining of this guide and TAG the threads you find with the appropriate tags so that others can benefit from your efforts.
