My question back to you is: why did you create the tag groups?
Have a look at this /tags page. It’s showing the tags according to their relationship to the categories. The only use for tag groups right now is to restrict their use in categories, so we show the category-to-tags relationships on the /tags page. But it sounds like you haven’t defined those relationships.
I guess you created tag groups for cosmetic reasons, but we don’t currently have a way to show that.
It’s not possible either. How do you imagine differentiating the groups in the dropdown?
Thanks for the response Neil. A lot of users use the tags page as a jumping off place to explore content on the site, and since we have a few broad categories, I thought it would be helpful to organize the tags under sub headings for our users. Organizing the dropdown is less of a priority, but same situation there… I imagined tags being nested under their group names, etc.
if an admin restricts some tags in a category, then the category-tag relation is shown organized in the tag page, but if he restricts tag-groups for a category, the category-tag relation is not shown in the tag page.
e.g. in the above image, those tags in red, will be organized in the tag page under the category name, but the tags in the tag-groups in green box will not.
I’m not sure if this is a bug or not, but I think tag-groups are to help admins handling large amount of tags.
and it’d be good if the later is also possible for organization of tag-page. otherwise admins need to select lots of tags in the category setting.
you’re right, it’d be a disaster. what if one shows the below relation in the tag page instead of category-tag relation:
p.s.: I think I’m missing something. I’ve tried repeated tags restricted to different categories; and they’re shown under each category in the tag-page. perhaps Car-Talk is using tag groups to hide repeated tags in the tag page.
Showing tags by tag groups is very important for our forum where we have over 200 tags (e.g. “countries”, “fields”, “criteria” etc.).
Currently we have a huge alpha-sorted list mixing countries and other tags. So, I have to keep a separate topic in the Feedback category like “List of all tags you can use” (by groups), but keeping this topic in sync with the /tags page is a chore.
The proposed cosmetic change on a /tags page can significantly improve both UX and maintenance.
Please, consider adding this feature.
