Tags not appearing in tag dropdown


#1

There are tags displaying on the tags page which aren’t appearing in the tags dropdown or search.

One example (of many) here on Meta is #bug

This is because of site setting max tags in filter list which defaults to 30. The description of the site setting is:

Maximum number of tags to show in the filter dropdown. The most used tags will be shown.

I just increased that setting to 100 here on Meta and #bug is appearing in dropdown now.

If that is the case, this is not a bug @hawk.

what we could do though is making this component make ajax request if filtering doesnt return anything. Or apply filtering on the full list even if we only show a partial list in the first place.

I’d favor this solution: users usually don’t know about the max tags limit, and would expect they search the complete tag set when entering anything into the Search… field.
