Tagging topics without affecting topic placement


(Stephen Ronan) #1

Just in the early phases with a first forum, as an admin I added tags to some of the older topics and my impression is that as a result those topics appeared at the top of the list of topics for users checking in, above the new topic.
Is there a way to avoid that happening… to tag topics without affecting where they appear in the list of topics seen by users?
Thanks

You can reset the bump date when editing any single-post topic:

Thanks. In my case these were indeed single-post topics, so that solved the problem there. Is there any recommendation in respect to multi-posts topics, which I’d expect to be an issue in the future, with all the tagging done to topics by staff?

Topics are bumped when the last post in a topic is edited, for single post topics this includes tagging. It won’t occur when tagging topics which have replies.
