Tagging System for Topics
« on: January 16, 2009, 09:11:54 AM »
Just installed a new feature which allows members to tag their posts.

Whenever you post a message, there is a new line just below the title for tags.  You can enter up to 10 tags which describe the message - these are just keywords so use can be anything relevant.

For example, I have tagged this message with 2 tags which are pretty self-explanatory.

These will build up over time to form a tag cloud which is available from the Tags button on the top menu.  Individual tags are also available when viewing each post.

This feature is just an addition to the search function to help people find topics/messages of interest to them.

For example, if looking at a message about fossicking which is tagged Oberon - clicking on that tag will give them a list of other messages that have also been tagged Oberon.

So the more people use this, the more useful it will become over time.

cheers
