Issue adding tags


has happened a few times…


trying to add a 3-character tag and i can’t seem to do it. the “create new tag” doesn’t always show up.

That’s odd. Any consistency to when you can’t create a 3 letter tag? It works here on Meta when I try…


i’ve had this issue a few times. ill give it another go… and see if it happens again in a way that reproducible.

A thought, which I don’t think I can test here on Meta, we don’t have enough similarly spelled tags - does it occur every time there are 5 existing tags that match the 3 letters?

I’m pushing updates to this component next week, might improve this.


tried a few more times… had another issue.


couldn’t seem to add a new tag… women… the problem is that this tag already exists:

so, i published the post and then went back to edit the tag and add it post-publish… but then it showed me this strange view:


now it says i could create a new one even though it found it.

Yes I know about the last one, it’s kind of an edge case. And a little bit annoying cause the list of existing tags is async so I’ m not sure what kind of UI I should do here. As I don’t want to remove the field as you are typing if the list shows an existing tag.

For the first one I will check.

Will be fixed by:



cool. had it happen again:


couldn’t create “gamengine”… but, i deleted it and typed in “gameengine” (two e’s) and then i could create.

and again.

I just pushed two fixes:

This should for sure fix this one:


Concerning the other issue, I would appreciate a more detailed reproduction.


kk. will continue to test post-update.



tried multiple times. showed “create” but disappeared when i got beyond “community” in the tag “ethereumcommunityfund”.

What’s your max tag length site setting? I bet “ethereumcommunityfund” is too long



a few more issues.

max tag length is 20.

There was still a case where it could happen indeed:
