Adding tags to new threads

Have you noticed the Tag field at the bottom of each thread? (hint: look at the bottom of this thread)

Tags can be added by the thread starter and can be useful for filtering topics and sorting content in a more granular way.

What are tags?

Tags are a useful way to search for threads with similar subject matter and content. This compliments the normal search system, which searches only for certain words or phrases and/or posts by specific users.

Who adds the tags?
Tags are initially added to threads by the member who starts a thread. Add words or phrases to threads to help describe the content to the tag field when starting a new topic. For instance, if the subject matter is 'photography' then you can add the tag 'photography' to the tag list. But you could also add tags like 'digital image', and 'camera' (depending, of course, on the nature of the thread). This will categorize this thread with all other threads that have matching tags, whether or not they have the word 'photography' in them.

How to use tags to find content?
Tags are displayed in a box near the bottom of a thread page. Clicking on a tag will allow you to view other threads that have the same tag - and which may be related. Clicking on the word 'Tags' in the top of the box will take you to an overview page with a 'tag cloud.' This cloud allows you to see which tags are the most popular - the larger the word, the more times it has been used on threads within the board. There is also another tag cloud on the advanced search page that shows you the tags that have been searched for (or clicked on) the most.

Photo Albums

Forum members can set up photo albums. Images may be public or private and can be managed and edited indefinitely by each member. You can access your albums or set up a new album from your user CP. Look for the link to Pictures and Albums.

Consider setting up more than one album.

I don't see anything that resembles this.

Bansil,

Can you link to a post that has it, I tried a few and there is nothing that says tags. Some, not all, have a "Similar Threads" at the bottom but that's it

That's because I neglected to add tags to this thread in the wee small hours of the morning. Look again again ;)

The old forum had a nifty link to view all unread threads, as opposed to viewing posts by date. This was useful to see all new items that the user hasn't already read. Does this forum have such a feature hidden away, or can it be added?

Yes - we have a similar feature. Look for the link to "new Posts" on the upper nav bar.

You can also find all posts made in the past few days under the quick links drop down menu (also on the upper bar) The link is called "todays posts". This later list wiil include all content, even the stuff you've already read.

The New posts link will only display content you have not yet read.
