Tags FAQ

What are Tags?

Tags are a tool to organize, categorize and later find bookmarked stories in the library.

How to use Tags?

When you click the bookmark button for a story anywhere on the site you get this bookmarking form:

Bookmarking form

To start using tags, just type some tags into the 'New Tags' field, separating individual tags with commas.

Typing tags into the form.

The words 'My First Tags' and 'My Second Tag' could be replaced with anything you fancy, like 'Really Hot Stories' or 'Futuristic Stories' whatever you want to use, you can. You can use one tag, ten tags, or even none. It's up to you.

Once you entered some tags, click the 'Add story' button and the story will be added to your library.

The next time you bookmark a story, the tags that you've used previously will be already available in the form.

Form with tags in it

To add one of your previously used tags to the story you're bookmarking, just click the tag and it will jump to the top line.

Form with a tag in the top line

If you need to remove a tag from story click the 'X' in the tag on the top line. That will move the tag to the bottom line.

Once you have used the tags, the library will remember your tags.

To use the tags to find stories, simply select the tag from the 'Show Tag' menu in the library. And the tagged stories will be displayed.
