Tags Application

View the Tag List

The existing tags are displayed by default in a tag cloud located on the wiki default dashboard page (Dashboard.WebHome).

In case you have customized your wiki dashboard so it wouldn't display the tag cloud, you can navigate to "Main.Tags".

Given that tags are stored in objects attached to the original page, it is not possible to filter them by language. This means that for instance the same tag cloud will display all the existing English and French tags.

Add Tags

In XWiki you can add tags to all pages which are then stored in "XWiki.XWikiTags" objects. To do so, go to the bottom of any page and click on [+].
