Start Tagging!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

With the announcement of the recent Site Award Winners, I wanted to highlight our Tagging feature, which is an easy way to win one of these cool badges.  It's easy because only one member other than Erik and I used this feature last month!



What is tagging?  Why is it important?

Tags allow information from around the community to be aggregated together.  They are labels that can be added to forum posts or Wiki articles to tie pieces of content together to make relevant information easier to find.  You can also subscribe to Tags, to make sure you stay updated with with your favorite topics.



Add Tags To Forum Posts And Wiki Articles

  1. Navigate to the forum thread or Wiki article that you would like to tag.  In the right hand column, you will see the "Add/Remove Tags" button in the "Tags" section.
  2. Click the "Add/Remove Tags" button.
  3. The Tag tool will appear.  The default setting allows you to use the Autocomplete tool to find your desired tags.  Simply start typing the topics below and a related tag will appear.PastedGraphic-5.png
  4. Select tags from the list by clicking on them.  They will appear in your Queue.  
  5. When you are satisfied with your selection, click "Submit"  Your tags will not be added until you click to save.




Subscribe To Tags

If you are interested in a particular topic, you might consider subscribing to a tag related to the topic.  You will be alerted when something is tagged with that topic.  These subscriptions work in the same way as a subscription to a Product or a Wiki or a forum thread.

  1. Navigate to one of the following pages listed below
  2. At the top of the page, toward the right hand side, you will see the "Subscribe to this Tag" button.

I will point out that you can subscribe to a tag in a few ways: by email (instantly, daily, or weekly) or "site only". The "Site Only" option will show the subscribed threads, articles, etc. in the "activity stream" on the home page (http://thesandtrap.com/) and a few other places.Yo


You can always edit your subscriptions at this URL: thesandtrap.com/users/subscriptions/index/action/edit.


But, please consider what Mike said. Tagging is a great way to help the community. We're looking particularly for our Forum Leaders to tag things. It's quick and painless.


Also, I've created a new tag: http://thesandtrap.com/tag/subscription-worthy. If there's a great thread or article, add the "subscription-worthy" tag to it. I've subscribed to the tag and it'll be a great way to alert others - even f you don't post in the thread (though hopefully you do!) - that a thread or article has some great content!


Note: It may take up to an hour for the "subscription-worthy" tag to propagate throughout the system, but we can all begin using it shortly.


And once again, with the tag all by itself so it stands out, here it is:
