Note: tagging is now a core feature in Discourse: Tagging support is now part of Discourse and this plugin is not required if you have a new installation of Discourse.
We now have an official plugin to add tagging functionality to Discourse:
This plugin provides tagging functionality to Discourse. When users create topics they can optionally attach tags.
Tags are a useful alternative to categories for some forums. For example if you were running a music forum, being able to tag a topic as “Hip Hop” and “Electronica” would be useful. If you were using categories you’d have to choose one or the other.
Users can tag topics with tags
You can restrict who can tag to a particular trust level
Users can choose to auto watch tags as desired
Users can list all tags, and filter topics by tag
There are bulk tools to assign tags to many topics at once and to rename tags.
A tag is “created” if it’s used at least once and it’s created during topic creation.
Enable Tags menu/filter
- You can enable this all tags menu by checking the “Show a dropdown to filter a topic list by tag” in the plugin setup.
- Defaults to listing only 30 tags.
- You can change using the setting:
max tags in filter
Follow our Install a Plugin howto, using
git clone https://github.com/discourse/discourse-tagging.git as the plugin command.
Once you’ve installed it, review the settings under admin and then enable
