Tagging system for topics

  • on: January 07, 2013, 12:25:49 PM
So I have been working on the forum again and I added a tagging system for the topics. This means that when you post a new topic, you will be asked to fill in the tags too. This means keywords that have to do with the topic you post. For example this post or see this link: http://www.michaeljacksonhoaxforum.com/forum/index.php/topic,23520.0.html

Here I added tags which can be seen in blue under the first post.

The more relevant keywords, the easier it will be later to find posts about certain subjects. I have added 'Tags' in the menu. When you go there and click one of the tags, you will get a list of all topics that are relevant.

[info]To add a keyword, type the word and press space. If your keyword has spaces within (like for example Dr. Conrad Murray) then the only way to get that as one keyword is to type it in wordpad or something and copy/paste in the tag line. Otherwise you will get 3 different tags: Dr., Conrad & Murray. So take that into account.[/info]

To the mods: if you come across a post that doesn't have any tags yet, could you guys please modify the first post and add them? Just any post, old or new. The ones that are posted now will have tags because I set it as a requirement.

PS: Another thing the tagging system will do, is show similar posts at the bottom of the topic if the tags are filled in right, like with this thread: http://www.michaeljacksonhoaxforum.com/forum/index.php/topic,23564.0.html

Maybe another option for the keywords with spaces in between, you can probably use this: "_" ?

As in: Dr._Conrad_Murray.

If that works, it would be easier than using Wordpad.

It is an option, but how often do you start a new topic?

That happened to me to, a few hours ago. When I wanted to add a link to one of my posts.
So I cancelled and posted the link apart in another post.

I see. I will make tags not a requirement, that should fix it. But please use the option.
