The new requirement to have two tags for forum posts is very annoying.
You can usually find one tag that fits, but often can't find a second.
You cannot add a new tag as far as I can tell. Sometimes I just throw in a BS tag so I can post.
I suggest, at least until the tag cloud is filled out, letting the user add a tag if one does not exist and flag it for review. Hopefully that is within the capabilities of the Forum software you use.
And/Or make it only require one tag until the tag cloud is filled out.
I have similar experience with tags.
Ack, this isn't good. Definitely my fault, I was messing around with these settings the other day. Sorry about this @bradlymathews + @vangelov!
Let me see if I can allow users to add new tags and if not, will remove the requirement until I can figure out a better solution
Okay, just removed the restricted tag topic groups and clicked the "Allow other tags" checkbox. When I tested it before this change (and after my breaking change ), it still allowed me to create new tags (maybe as an admin?) so I felt safe to launch.
Would y'all mind trying to create a topic now to see if it allows you to create your own tags? If not, I'll just remove the requirement entirely!
I refreshed the page several times, cleared site cookies and logged back in to make sure I got the code refreshed.
It is not allowing me to create new tags (and I have a very high forum trust level), or maybe I am doing it wrong? I do see that is now requires only one tag rather than two.
Also each forum section has a different set of allowed tags for example:
A different 5 tags:
A long list of tags:
Thank you for such extensively testing, @bradlymathews. I *think* we may be in the clear (0 required tags per topic) now! Let me know if you see otherwise
