    File tagging needs you!

    posted by Dark0ne Site News
    Over the past few weeks I have been working on a tagging system for files in the file database. This new system allows all users (not just authors) to specify tags for a file that better describe its contents.

    The frontend that allows users to suggest and rate tags for specific files has just been launched. You can access it by clicking the "Tag this file" link on file pages.

    I have yet to begin coding the search functionality, the system that will allow you to search for files via its confirmed tags. My thinking is to allow users of the site time to get to grips with the system and use it as much as possible, ready for when I finally code the searching system. Hopefully by that point a lot of the files will have some confirmed tags and the search function will have a use! You need to jump to it and get on it; go visit your favourite files, or the files you've downloaded recently from TESSource and start tagging them up.

    If you don't know what tagging is, or don't understand the concept after reading the blurb on the tagging window, you might want to read through my guide. It helps to better explain the system and how to use it.
