It appears that perhaps this tagging system might even be better than the current search system. But like everything, that all depends upon the tags. I'm already seeing some that are, well, you be the judge. ;-)

Still, all in all, it looks to be A Good Thing (TM), which is the hallmark of LinuxQuestions.org!

How do you edit/delete your own tags? I just made a mess unintentionally, and can't figure out how to fix it.

To edit tags for a post, simply double click the tags box for that post (or click "My Tags").

Nice feature, is it also possible to have tags consisting of multiple words? Or am i missing the point here?
I wanted to tag this post: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...64#post2192664
as 'sed remove line'
But when i do that literally i wonder if the tags (line and remove) keep their context in the right way (with sed). Now when i use only sed, we get alot of threads with very generic tags. It would be nice to be able to use 'remove line'

For some reason the spaces between words are removed, and you wind up with "sedremoveline" -- search for that, and see if you get that thread.

@chinaman: when i tag a thread with 'sed remove line', i get three tags: Popular LQ Tags line, remove, sed
When i then search for it with 'sed remove line' in the tags-thread I only see those tags in the 'my tags' section (and your sedremoveline). So should we remove spaces when posting tags that are multiple words? Or use underscores or something?

I haven't found any way to enter multiple words. I tried underscores, hyphens, etc. At first if I entered multiple words it removed the spaces and made it one word (see tagannouncement and newconfusingfeature). Now it seems to have been edited, and makes multiples like you said, so I entered "sedremoveline" without spaces to create that. I can, and will, remove that tag and let you do it the way you see fit. I don't know jack about sed anyway.

I'm an old dog trying to learn new tricks, but I must admit Jeremy is leaving me in a trail of dust...

How about an option to turn the "tags" box off altogether (like sigs) ???.

We're still mentally working out the multi-word tags. For now I would remove spaces, but long term we may need to move to a different delimiter. syg00, why would you want to remove the boxes. Unlike sigs, this is site functionality.

Sorry mate, I see it as unnecessary clutter which I would prefer to have the option of avoiding.
If I want to use it, I would prefer to have the choice to turn it on/off.

really would like a better intergration with the post design- not like something tacked on (oh wait... )

I really liked Acid's design.

Maybe a better looking tag box would make you less likely to want to avoid it, syg00?

seriously cool functionality though.

That's a good suggestion...turning it off. It does take away from the posts, similar to adds...

Overview of tags used

Jeremy, this will probably be quite useful.

For my own curiosity I would like to know the URL for the list of active "tags" in use.
The link http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/tags/ doesn't return anything.
If you contact me off list, I can show some possible ways to display them and may be one or two other uses.

Also, you might want to hack a way to have white space in the 'tag' to allow 'tags' that consist of two words.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/lqtags.php contains some basic statistics, but we'd surely be happy to offer more. If you have any further ideas, do contact me off list. As for spaces, we have adopted what technorati is using - "+". So, to tag a post with "Open Source" and Linux you would put:
Quote:
Open+Source Linux
in the tags box.

Seems interesting. I kinda feel like it might end up like a pile of forums? What I mean is just a second searchable feature? I like the idea but would like to see more from it. I have an idea:
Why not let people have a list of there hardware specs/distro/kernel/etc.. and sub catagory the tags into these topics? Like I tag something that fixed my soundcard issue for example, then I could put it into my own hardware/soundcard tag, then anyone else sees they have the same hardware that tag might fix there problem. Maybe it could play a part in with the HCL? Then maybe something personal in myLQ could be there for the user. Like a MY Tags place that is sorted by hardware/software/distro/etc...? So then if someone did a search for a sis900 ethernet card it could point to what has solved my problems and others. This could also be tied into the social parts of LQ. Lets say me and another member have close to the same hardware, we could be on each others list of shared resources of tags? Almost like a friend list without chat?

I also could be wayyy off base and plum outta my mind! I would also like to see it as a button.
