Whenever we try to add or remove tags, most of the time, there will be some random tags that are added. To give you an example, I have a topic that was tagged with ‘burn-scars’. I then added a couple of tags and once I save, it adds three more tags at random. See attached video:
Do the two added tags have synonyms?
You can check by going to e.g. (based on the video) https://supportgroups.com/tag/self-harm and clicking on the wrench that is usually at the top right.
No they do not
Have a lookover your site, it seems you have a reasonably advanced tag system set up.
When I’ve come across these issues before it is often a parent/child tag relationship that’s auto-adding the extra ones on (a child tag can’t exist without a parent one, so one will often be auto-added to ensure consistency). Depending on how you’ve structured everything, this can sometimes lead to unexpected behaviour.
Are you using parent/child tags at all for your tagging system?
@JammyDodger I’m not using any parent / child tags. I’ve checked that too.
