Introduction to Tag system - “Teleport” to your searching topics in the blink of an eye

1. Tag system in a nutshell

Categories offer a neatly-organized feed page and topic groups for forum users, yet they are inflexible, generic, and restricted. Meanwhile, the tag system can be applied as a nimble and efficient tool to search, group, and identify your topics within a few clicks.

Here are 3 reasons why Tag system is your searching best bet:

  • Flexible: You can create, apply and change tags - while you can not do the same thing to the defined categories.
  • Specific: You can assign multiple tags to the same topic, even across categories - this helps your topic to be specific and lessen the gap time to meet the solutions.
  • Transparent: You can view a list of all tags, and filter searching topics by tag.

2. Search for a problem with tags - “Teleport” to your on-demand topics

  • Step 1: Access the Tags option and direct to the Tags page
  • Step 2: Click the tag name reflecting your searching topics
  • Step 3: Scroll down to find similar topics with your concerns

Here is a quick guide for searching through tags:
