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

Tagging an Article

  1. Find the Tags box in the Article Actions, above the editor
    1. If you've got lots of tags, you'll need to click Manage Tags
  2. Start typing your tag
  3. When you're done, hit comma to save the tag and write another
  4. Press Save to save 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.
