Wouldn't that idea be better if it was coded into the search page? Either instead, or also.

I don't think so. That solution "takes you away" from viewforum. I think that's confusing from a user point of view.

I agree with Xabi here... it should be on viewforum

I should mention that this MOD, (as well as most of my other mods) doesn’t modify any core code... they only add to it, and most everything is accomplished in an external file, it is coded with the “Safe MOD” procedures in mind.

May I suggest a multiple Tag feature. Rather than having drop down list, we can have something like a multiple check box of tag where member can select more than 1 appropriate tag for the topic. Example like when you have topic for contest and you would like to tag it as 'ONLINE' ,'SLOGAN','WRITING'.

Hope you can consider about this :)

I don’t completely understand your request.
If by allowing multiple tags, for example, 3 extra tags, the topic titles could become insanely long, not only that, it would make the MOD unnecessarily complex.
It would be much easier and more efficient to just do: (for example) the following 7 tags for a forum.

Code: Select all

[ONLINE]
[SLOGAN]
[WRITING]
[ONLINE][SLOGAN]
[ONLINE][WRITING]
[SLOGAN][WRITING]
[ONLINE][SLOGAN][WRITING]
Rather than allow multiple tag options.

This is EXACTLY what I needed!!! Thanks a lot!!

Was actually going to try create a mod for this, but why reinvent the wheel huh??

Would be great if one could add content tags (different MOD for that) AND idk if this was mentioned, maybe "filter" on the tag specified, so if in forum id=234, and you click Topic tag "TAG1", it'll give you a lits of all "TAG1"s. Same so on the index.

I got overly excited and posted b4 reading first post all the way through.

I plan on adding that in a later Beta/release.

Bug
  • When you edit an existing thread with a topic tag, then hit the back button and refresh... the topic tag will disappear.
Feature requests
  • A delete button for each tag, in case we want to remove a tag from the ACP.
  • The ability to have different tags in different forums.
Quick Poll
Do you guys want the modification released as scheduled, 2nd July. Or alternatively, you could wait another week -- and the added benefits would be delete function, ability to add different tags in different forums and possibly more stable in regards to bugs, etc?

Delete button would be nice.

Having different tags for each forum (or turned off for certain forums) is a great idea, I was already hoping that it would be able to do that.

If it's stable release it as scheduled. You can always release an update in a week or 2 with more features.

Do you mean something like multiple tagging in blog like WordPress? If yes, that would be great. :)

The blog type of tagging is not topic tag prefixes. :roll:
That is more of like cloud tagging, which is not remotely related to this MOD.

Spanish translation by ecwpa added and will be provided with the first public Beta.
