Can someone explain to me what the hell these tags on the bottom of pages are, and what they are for?

 

I was on a thread there, and there was a tag saying 'admin Zamorano'. What the fuck does that mean? I'm 'admin' and Salas is my evil twin, but what's Zamorano got to with it? Do people have to add their own tags, and what's the point of them?

 

I know I should know this shit as I'm the one who installed it and all, but someone help me out here?

They help you categorize and search through threads. Everyone can tag. If you click on the word "tags" you'll see a tag cloud of the most popular tags. Great function, will help us alot!

They also help with SEO but mainly it's just for site categorisation. You'll no doubt be able to install a tag cloud mod to the site too. That means there's a little box with some keywords in it (The tags) if a tag gets used on more and more threads, the tag in the tag cloud becomes bigger to show that it's a popular topic on the forum.

There is one already. Click on "tags", popular tags right now is "Quaresma" and "ginger"

Right - I get how to do them, but how will they help us (apart from releasing endorphins every time we chuckle at another amusing one)?

If it was used properly and people tagged the thread properly, you could tag "Shit music" and then if you searched for that tag, the search engine would throw up all tags containing "Shit music" and thus you would get every thread Stu Monty had created on The GF.

I suspected as much. So there goes that idea, then.
