We are launching a discourse forum in the apartment rental space (nationally). We think most questions will be geo focused (e.g. What’s the best place to live in Boston) but wonder how to organize with city tags, etc. Should we populate all cities/states into our tag database? Does anyone have an example of a Discourse forum doing something like this? It could be real estate, travel, etc.
I have just the posts for you on this!
Start with this write up on tags: It’s Time We Talked About Tags, then afterwards see how a car forum uses tags to manage the information on their forum: How to create tag structures, tag category restrictions, tag groups and tag relationships.
There is some insight in how Car Talk used tags that would help you define your own tag schema or structure.
