In Socialtext, tags help you identify information so it can be found later on. Every page can have any number of tags.

View tags for a page. When viewing a page, its tags are listed in the light green "Tags" box in the sidebar. If you can't see the sidebar, click > in the upper right corner of the page to open the sidebar.

View all tags. Visit the Dashboard and click All tags to see all the tags in the workspace. You will see an alphabetical list of all of the defined tags. Clicking on any tag will show a list of all pages with that tag.

Editing Tags

When you are browsing a page, you can edit the tags directly in the light green Tags box.

Assign a tag. Click the Add tag button to add a tag. A box will appear that lets you enter a tag.

Suggestions are provided below the box, based on the characters you have typed so far and the tags that already exist in the workspace. Clicking a suggested tag will add that tag. To save your newly entered tag, press Enter or click the Save tag button.

Remove a tag. Click the [x] next to a tag to remove it from the page.

NOTE: All workspace weblog names are also tag names. Assigning a weblog as a tag (e.g. assigning the tag My Weblog) publishes the page to that weblog.

Advanced formatting: Including tags in pages

Within Advanced mode, you can refer to tags within your pages, in effect, linking to a tag.

    • From this workspace, use {category: tagname}
    • From another workspace, use {category: <workspacename> tagname}

You can also list the most recently updated pages with a given tag directly inside your pages.

It is easiest to link to tags and include tags by using WikiWidgets in Simple mode.

{category-list: Help} list ten most recent changes in tag Help
{category-list: <wikiwed> Help} list ten most recent changes with tag Help in WikiWed workspace
