the tagging function seems too hidden to me...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I was starting a thread tonight, and it occurred to me that i should tag it, since i often have trouble with searches myself.

 

So, i began to look for the tag button. Couldnt find it. Did a search (haha)...finally found the tagging tutorial. Read it all. Couldnt find it. Read it again, finally found it. Its sort of hidden between the ads and whatnot on the right. Could it be placed in a better place?

So did you figure out how to add a Tag?  I find it simplest to click in the box under Topics Discussed where it says "Find a topic to tag" and start typing, then I pick from the list.

Look in the right hand column under Featured Stories.

The easier option is in your profile enable the text to tag tool, then whenever you highlight a word with your cursor the Tagging box automatically comes up. We don't want it to be too prominent, because if a lot of people start adding a lot of tags, it can be counter-productive to search.
