Tags Feature On AFO

    Recommended Posts

    Some of you may have seen, the Fishing Regions category has been consolidated into one forum category (as well as a few other categories). This is to try and simplify the structure of the AFO forum and make it a better experience on AFO. To facilitate this we are rolling out a new tagging feature across the site. Whilst this is still in it infancy we ask you to bear with us while we implement this across the site. This may take a few weeks to fully do, as we try and iron out a few issues we have encountered. We will also be going back and tagging many topics that are missing tags.

    • What this allows is for forum topics (and many other site items) to be tagged with a tag.
    • Each forum has a predefined list of tags to select from.
    • Tags will be mandatory for each forum topic.
    • You can select multiple tags to tag forum topics with.

    So if you are posting about fishing in Moreton Bay you would post in the Fishing Regions category and select 'south queensland' as the tag. If you are posting about fishing freshwater in North Pine Dam, you would select the 'south queensland' tag as well as the 'freshwater' tag. 

    When viewing a forum category you can filter on the right hand side to drill down to only see the items with that specific tag. Also in the search feature you can search for only items tagged with a specific tag.

    At the moment we still have the Queensland > Freshwater forum category visible for people to reply to topics, however, no new topics can be created in here. Please post in the Fishing Regions category going forward. Over time all of these topics will be moved into the Fishing Regions category once we correctly tag these posts.

    We will be refining the system to make sure it provides a user friendly experience. We understand that this new workflow/organisation of the forum may take a little to get used to, but please ask you keep an open mind as it opens up lots of possibilities going forward. We will work with the AFO community to refine it and get it right over the coming weeks and months.
