Hi, is there any way to create custom taxonomies (or anything related) in Discourse similarly to how WordPress handles custom taxonomies? I’ve looked at custom fields for categories/tags, but not sure if that would fix the problem I’m trying to solve.
If the answer is no, does Discourse have a limit on how many tags you can have in a tag group? If no limit, does a high number of tags cause any performance issues?
Thanks for your advice.
Can you explain the problem you’re trying to solve?
We’re building a directory where developers can list their plugins/themes for ClassicPress (fork of WordPress). What I would like to do is have each plugin/theme have a dedicated “space” in the forum, so any topics assigned to that plugin/theme can be easily found with a direct link. Just like a tag page.
WordPress does it on their forums with dedicated sub-forums for plugins. For example:
The tag does serve this purpose, but I don’t know how scalable a tag group can be if we have hundreds/thousands of tags inside it. How well would the tag search work with thousands of tags?
EDIT: Another example is Discourse official plugins here, for example:
Anyone got any feedback? Point in the right direction?
