Tech Note: Let’s Play Tag
Today we’re unveiling a brand new tagging system for your LGF Pages, making it much easier to create new tags and reuse previously created tags with a personalized autocompletion feature.
The LGF Pages posting bookmarklet now uses your personal “tag library” (all the tags you’ve ever used for your Pages) to help you quickly enter tags without much typing. When you start typing into the Tags area you’ll see a popup list of all the tags in your library that match what you’ve typed so far. For example, type the letters ‘Ap’ and you might see something like this:
You can move through the list with your arrow keys or by using the mouse, and select a tag by hitting return or clicking.
When you enter tags, you’ll no longer see the drab, boring, comma-delimited list of text. Instead, the tags look very similar to the way they appear when you post your Page:
The little red X at the right side of each tag is a delete button; you can also delete tags one at a time in reverse order by backspacing. Play around with it and see what you think; hopefully this will encourage you LGF Pages authors to start using tags more.
(Hat tip to XOXCO for their very nice jQuery Tags Input plugin.)
