why i need/can add tags here if they are not made available for filtering the contents here?!?!?!


If made available for editing ... please make them available for filtering.

Or even better - looking around based on a tag-cloud.

It appears you can search the community forum using tags. I've just searched the forum for posts with the "tagtagtag" tag which you used for this query and this was the only post that came up.

However, there doesn't seem to be a way to search just on the basis of tags alone. For example, a search for "SmartRules" throws up all posts which have SmartRules in the topic title, topic text and as a tag. Furthermore, if you search for a multi-word tag the search function will search for each word individually, so that "marker group" will give you results for "marker" and "group".

I agree there should be some form of advanced search which will let the user search using any of the following individually and in combination: Topic title, Topic text, Category and Tag. In addition, there should be an option to search for individual words in a search term, or only the whole phrase.

You can search tags only with the syntax "tag:tagname" in the search box.

Thanks Nick. This should go some way to meeting what Alexander W. wants.

Hi Alexander, thanks for your suggestion. This appears to be a limitation of the service provider we are using. @Nick, this is new information. Thanks for providing the solution for that!
