    Will someone explain to me how tags work please ? ... it just searches for what I'm trying to add then tells me to get stuffed.
    That's how it's supposed to work, for you anyway. :D

    That's just threads that I've started, not all the others that I've participated in.

    You know, I've asked this question about tags no fewer than three times, and still nobody has answered !!

    @monquixote - what did we do with the tags?

  • Supposedly you just type them in.

    Are they not working?

    I'm not sure how useful they are so we could think about binning them.

    Not working for me (W7 64 / Chrome).  You start typing the word, it says 'searching' as you're typing, then it says 'no results' (if the word you're typing hasn't already been tagged by someone else).  You click anywhere and the word you've typed disappears.

    I'm not sure how useful they'd be unless we get a pre-defined list of tags from which people select those that apply to a post.  And use them consistently. 

    And even then, a decent search tool would probably achieve more with less effort (from the users, if not from us!!)

    So.... does anyone else see the same behaviour as I'm seeing when it comes to trying to add tags to a post ?

    Er... start a thread.... then try to add any suitably related words into the 'Tags' field below the editor window.

    I'm using my iPhone and my text just becomes one long sentence without the paragraphs. Any tips on that?
    For some reason the editor is off by default on iOS devices. Click the "show source" button and it should turn the WYSIWYG editor on.

    Where's the show source button please?

    Neither do I.
    It could be a bug, a conflict between the "General" and "Category" notifications settings.

    When I quote somebody, I can't get the stuff I write to appear outside of the box that contains the quote. Tried clicking outside the box, pressing various arrows, enter, tab etc. I have to write inside the quote box so it looks like my writing is part of the quote. Any ideas?

  • just been having a look at the off topic threads and I noticed that 'facepalm' was mentioned.....previously I had absolutely no idea what the 'frets', 'facepalm' icons meant.  I'm not sure if I've understood this correctly but does facepalm mean that someone has given you negative feedback for some reason? 

    I noticed I has 2 facepalms in my profile and have no real idea what they are, what they mean or how they got there!  Could anyone enlighten me?  Ta......

    They were a method of negative feedback. People were being silly with them. The mods learned the valuable axiom, "If a group with a population greater than n is given the opportunity to be silly they will be silly."

    n is about four.

    I have to say I think that's worryingly weird.....that people can slag you off anonymously.  I have no problem with someone standing up and saying they have a problem with me if I have the opportunity to be heard.  Very strange.........
