Ed, I dont know what you mean by tagging..do you mean the way you can tag a person in Facebook? If so, I have never heard of that concept or ability existing anywhere outside of Facebook..never heard of it in a forum before..why would we want it here?
No not at all, I hardly ever go on Facebook. I don't even know how to tag someone there.
The V bulletin on other sites has a tag box. You see it under the posts in a thread.
All it is is a box were you can add a few key words and in a search the search feature will show ALL the threads that has been discussed about them. You might remember talking about a certain subject but can't find the thread. If you had tagged it you could easily find it through a search if it was tagged, months or years later.
I tag the words in the tag, LED light, every thread that has that tag will show up in a search.
I just used that as an example.
If all the threads about LED lighting was tagged months or years from now if some one searched using those words every thread ever that talked about LED with the tag would show up in the search. A normal search will pull out some when you search LED but not all.
It greatly enhances the search feature.
Members are limited to so many tags in one thread and the description length is limited to around 2 or 3 words.
Sometimes when the thread is new a normal search will bring it up as it is fresh in the system, but as months (or years) go by the search won't show it anymore. Now if it had a tag it would.
I was just wondering why we don't have tagging.
How about TRACKBACK?
As your typing a reply in the advanced mode, look down and you see a TRACKBACK box.

(with a box below here for adding content)
What is a trackback box for?
Maybe that works like a tag box?
