Adding Tags to Articles

Jake Peters Updated by Jake Peters

You can add tags to your articles to improve search performance. Tags help us identify what an article's about and present better results to your users.

Tags are especially helpful when your users refer to features by many different names. For instance, we have custom HTML templates. A user might type html, custom html, template, theme, layout, etc. to find that article. We have those added as tags so the article appears higher in search for those terms.

Tags can also be displayed in certain themes or used to group articles into collections. 

Adding too many tags can degrade your search performance. We recommend adding less than 10 for each article.
We don't display tags in any of our stock templates, but developers are free to use them in custom themes.

  2. Click Edit slug, tags, etc. from the dropdown
  3. Head to Tags and click Add a tag
  4. Start typing your tag
  5. Select the result from the dropdown
  6. Hut Apply changes & close
  7. Hit Save Changes to apply the tag to your article
You can also use our fuzzy search autocomplete to find a tag you've used somewhere else. Just click one of the results that appears as you're typing.
