Thumbs up New Forum Feature #3 Search Tags

I just added the search tag feature last night. It should help make topics easier to find and better organized.

What are search tags?

Tags are basically keywords that describe the thread topic. The forum then uses those keywords (or "tags) to display related topics about that subject.

When you start a new topic, you will have the option of entering up to 9 descriptive keyword tags (separated by commas) that describe the thread you're about to create.

Here's a screenshot of the search tag input box:

So if you're creating a topic about popular t-shirt sizes, some relevant keyword tags might be: t-shirt sizes, popular sizes, demographics

Where do these tags show up?

After you post your thread, the tags you selected will be shown at the bottom of your post:

How will the search tags help me?

The search tags will help your post be found by other members who have tips and advice to give. It will also help other users find answers who are searching for information on the same topic.

If you click on one of the tag links, it will bring up a handy list of threads about that topic:

This will give you easy access to even more relevant tips and advice about the tag topic you clicked on.

How else can I find tags:

You can find a link to search tags in 3 main places.

The main search tag "cloud" that shows all the popular tags is linked to in the Site Navigation menu in the left hand side of the forums:

When you're viewing a particular forum section, like the wholesale t-shirts section of the forum, at the bottom of the page, you'll see a search tag cloud that shows the popular search tag keywords for that forum. You can click on any of those links to bring up more topics for that keyword:

Also the main search tag cloud page shows the popular forum tags and is searchable.

So now, if you want to find cool things like a list of all the articles that have been posted, you can look at the articles tag.

Or if you want to see the video tutorials that have been posted, you can check out the video tag ( to see badalou ( in action.

Who can edit tags?

As the thread starter, you ccan add or remove search tags to your topic at any time. That way, if you find more helpful information has been posted to your topic, you can add the relevant tags that describe the new information so others can find it as well.

The administrators and moderators can also add/edit/delete tags to help organize things and make topics easier to find.
If you have any questions about this feature, or feedback about anything forum related, be sure to drop me a line via email, PM (Private Message), or post it in the Feedback section of the forum.
