I was surprised that discourse 1.8.7 apparently has no support for tag aliases (akin to stackexchange). I first though that I could achieve something similar with tag groups, but that is not the case. I would really like a way to define a set of aliases for a given tag.
Tags seem to be a second class citizen currently, e.g. there is no ‘Tag’ in the top menu (Unread, Top, Categories). I wonder why? Tags are an excellent addition besides categories to get order into a forum. But only if tag aliases are supported.
