    Thread tagging is a new way to index content in an organised manner. Think of tags as 'categories' to help describe your thread! :)

    How it works?

    Well, first - you create a thread as normal.

    You'll notice the tags box above the create thread button:

    Tags are normally designed to be single words. You add tags as if you are categorizing your posts. Once you have typed in a tag, you press the 'comma' button on your keyboard which turns the text into a tag.

    If a tag has already been used by someone else before, you will see it come up in a menu, which you can click, or just finish typing the tag.

    What it should look like:

    Press the create thread button, and I'm about to show you where this takes us.

    You'll see your thread tags listed above the first post of the thread:

    Now, say if we were to click on one of those tags, you would be taken to a page where EVERY OTHER POST indexed under that tag would exist - E.g. http://www.genealogy-specialists.com/tags/guides

    The page would display like so:

    So currently, the only thread indexed under the 'guides' tag is my demo which can be found here: http://www.genealogy-specialists.com/threads/thread-tagging-demo-thread.5721/

    Main tags page:

    http://www.genealogy-specialists.com/tags/

    Shows popular tags which are clickable, and you are also able to search tags:

    Other details:

    A MAXIMUM OF 15 TAGS CAN BE ADDED TO A THREAD - A LIMIT WE HAVE SET.

    You can edit the tags on your thread by clicking the 'Edit' link near the tags:

    Any questions? Feel free to ask, but you are welcome to go and add tags to your threads! :)
