Topic Tags

Tags are a free form method of categorization, currently being used to group and categorize similar topics. The goal of using these tags in the forum is to create a “heat map”, an index of topics covered within the Forum. The larger the size of the tag, the more discussions about the topic.

This is a board specific setting page, if you have more than one board then you can find these settings under each dashboard menu of forum boards. For example, if you’ve created two forum boards “EN Forum” and “FR Forum”, then you’ll find the Topic Tags settings of each board in the corresponding menu:

  • Single Board Forum:
    • Dashboard > wpForo > Settings > Topic Tags
  • Multi-Boards Forum:
    • Dashboard > EN Forum > Settings > Topic Tags
    • Dashboard > FR Forum > Settings > Topic Tags
