On my post Buying Pork Belly Online I tried to add Meat and Food tags for the topic. After I put them in there the box would just clear.
I think those are categories. I don’t thing there are any tags set up in the system, and the average user can’t create tags.
(or everything I just said is wrong)
There are tags. I believe (and @richard can confirm or deny) that you may need to be above trust level 1 to create tags. So it may just be a matter of time.
Bear in mind that you don’t need to use Food or Meat as tags, as those (as @Pilotbob observed) are already categories.
One other thing…please keep in mind that this is all fairly new, even to the admins, so it may take some time for our collective best practices to shake out.
You can use existing tags as trust level 1, but you can’t create new tags. I’m looking into whether level 2 can create them.
[it appears that only moderators and admins can create new tags at this time]
Thanks for digging into this and getting the answer, Carol!
