Category setting for default tags


(Steve Combs) #1

Continuing the discussion from Let's discuss if tag should be enabled on Mobile:

Another tag feature would be a category setting for default tags so that all topics posted in a category would include certain tags designated by the admin. Would help to aggregate topics like events across the site.

Can you expand here a bit with a particular use case?

It would be useful for sites that have dedicated categories (more likely subcategories) for things like events, galleries, products, press releases, support, geographic areas, languages, etc.

In my specific case I have different groups that each have their own event and gallery subcategories. For users who participate in multiple groups, it’s a way for them to see everything under one tag.

This would be away to easily aggregate topics across a site and reduce admin work. Thinking it through more, it probably should just be the first post in a category, not every reply, that gets the tag.

Not a show stopper, but might be nice for some sites.
