Tags are a quick and easy method of classifying content within a website. Tags may be thought of as keywords or labels that can be attached to a page, an asset, or other content to enable searches to find that content and related content.
1. See Administering Tags for information about creating and managing tags, as well as to which content tags have been applied.
2. See Tagging for Developers for information about the tagging framework as well as including and extending tags in custom applications.
Reasons to Use Tagging
1. Organizing Content - Tagging makes life easier for authors as they can quickly organize content with little effort.
2. Organizing Tags - While tags organize content, hierarchical taxonomies/namespaces organize tags.
3. Deeply Organized Tags - With the ability to create tags and sub-tags it becomes possible to express entire taxonomic systems, covering terms, subterms and their relationships. This allows creation of a second (or third) content hierarchy in parallel to the official one.
4. Controlled Tagging - Tagging can be controlled by applying permissions to tags and/or namespaces to control tag creation and application.
In the author environment, authors may apply tags by accessing the page properties and entering one or more tags in the Tags/Keywords field.
To apply pre-defined tags , in the Page Properties window use the Tags field and the Select Tags window. The Standard Tags tab is the default namespace, which means there is no namespace-string: prefixed to the taxonomy.
