About two weeks ago, tags started acting a bit wonky for us.
For example, I want to tag a topic as “python”. I already have a python tag:
Here is what I see when I try to select the tag:
I know I have a python tag already and it normally jumps in there when I start typing but it doesn’t now. It looks like it does when you create a new tag
But after I click the checkbox, the new tag shows up for just a nanosecond and then disappears, no tag:
There isn’t anything in the list of tags that can only be used in this category, although if I click in the field it again shows me just the wont-fix tag.
Just now I checked another category and found the following set of allowed tags. These are not a set of tags that anyone would have picked out for this category. I just deleted each one and clicked “Save Category” and when I come back in they are all back. The crazy thing is, it seems to let me delete one at a time, save and go back and it’s still gone, UNTIL I delete the last one, when I come back after that they have all returned.
I spot checked a few more categories and they all seem to have that weird set of tags. in fact I just checked Corner Bar again and it has them now too. If I hadn’t taken the screen shot at the top of this topic I would be questioning my sanity now.
