Tag policy (what’s required, what tag groups are allowed…) is set on a per-category basis. But the automatic tagging feature is site-wide. It would be ideal if this could be separately configured on a per-category basis, and failing that at least nicer if it could be given a list of categories to ignore (or not ignore).
We use tags differently in different categories. I would like to have different watched word auto-tagging on a per-category basis. (Different have different types of content and different tagging rules / practices.
I don’t think this is possible at all right now, so please consider this a suggestion / rfe.
(Although — what happens when per-category tag groups are in use?)
Also, to extend this to other Watched Words features, different categories may have different permissions, so different Require Approval or Flag rules might apply. ↩︎
Note that there are two “levels” possible here:
- Enable or disable automatic tagging on a per category basis
- Different tagging rules on a per-category basis.
The second would be awesome but the first would address my immediate need.
I’ve merged the double-up topics together
FYI to anyone else wanting to do this: the watched words feature respects category tag rules, so as long as you don’t have overlap and can make tag groups work, you can use those to manage this.
