A tag is a label or attribute that you can insert with the creation of an event or a post.  It will look like #boys, #winter, #WFDF, etc.

Tags are a useful tool that allow you to aggregate content in different ways across your website.  There are two primary uses for tags: Event aggregation and Post aggregation.  Tagging will allow you to:

  • Display content that contains the tag(s) in question
  • Inform users about the event or post content
  • Enable users to filter and search content
  • Provide metadata for search engines

Tagging for Events

When you first create an event, you will be asked to create some basic tags for your event.  Select as many tags as are relevant.  The more attributes you assign to the event, the easier it will be to search for the event when posting the event in different places. 

This event will now appear on Event Lists and Widgets that are displaying events with certain tags.  

Tagging for Posts

When you write a post, you will be given the option to add tags to the post.  Similar to event tagging, you will want to add tags in order for this content to appear on Post Lists, Widgets, and Syndicated Content across Network sites. 

Tags are useful when you have different Pages across your site with different types of content.  For example, perhaps you only want posts with the tag #news to appear on your front page and posts with the tag #blog to appear on your blog page.
