I’m recently new to being an admin for discourse, however I have been a user in many places for some time. I’d like help with working out how best to manage categories/tags please.
I have categories
Domestic. Under Industrial I have sub-cat
Oil and Gas,
Power Generation. I’d like a third tier which I thought I could manage with tags. The trouble is, when I make a tag compulsory, for example under
Oil and Gas I have
Offshore, I then can’t appear to have additional tags that the users can create. If I add another tag group, say
cable, wire, EEHA, motor, then these can be used as the compulsory flag too…which goes against what I would like.
This is an example of a preferable hierarchy. (Example could be
onshore be a compulsory tag and
any-tag be any tag, or any tag group.
Industrial └─ Oil and Gas │ └───Onshore │ │ - any_tag │ │ │ └───Offshore │ - any_tag │ └─ Mining │ └───Extraction │ │ - any_tag │ │ │ └───Processing │ │ - any_tag │ │ │ └───Refining │ - any_tag │ └─ Power Generation Commercial └─ Foo Domestic └─ Blah
Question 1: Have I missed something with how tags are managed?
Question 2: If not able to specify a compulsory tag from one group, and then any tag after, am I better off making the Sub-categories
Oil and Gas - Onshore,
Oil and Gas - Onshore?
Thanks for your time in helping me better understand the workings of these. For the record, I have searched in past questions but they only seem to cover mandatory groups or free tags, not a mixture of both.
