Tagging forum posts

Foreword: I hope this post isn't considered off-topic. If it's considered so then I apologize, and you may delete it. I know it doesn't strictly belong in the "Using GeoGebra" forum, but I couldn't find a more appropriate place to post this.


Just wanted to let you know that there's a browser extension that lets you tag posts on this forum.


Tags are different than bookmarks: you can associate a post with several tags, and the tags are displayed in listings as well. (They're certainly different than the one-dimensional "Bookmarks" feature already provided by this forum.)


Here are some screenshots (click to enlarge):

(I tag posts with 'kondr' if they contain juicy inside tips.)

(Here you see that tags appear in listings as well. Also in search results. BTW, I use the '_watch_' tag instead of subscribing.)

I'm the author of this browser extension. A couple of months ago I embarked on writing a technical document explaining GeoGebra (which I hope to wrap up and upload soon) and I needed a way to keep track of posts here; so I extended my already-existing extension to support this forum.


NOTE: For Tiger to recognize this fourm you must surf it via the 'http://www.geogebra.org' domain. If you surf it via the 'geogebra.uni.lu' domain, or anything else, it won't be recognized.

Have not figured out how to create a tag.

Have not figured out how to create a tag.

There's a "New tag:" input box on the page (you see it in the first screenshot). Type something there and hit ENTER. Note that you only get to see this "tags bar" when you're viewing a forum post (There's no point in showing it when you aren't).


You can email me directly.


Let me know if you see the "Tiger" yellow button in the lower-left corner of the screen (as in the screenshots).

I understand now, thanks.

A new version of this browser extension is ready. (See the link in the first post on this page.)


With this new version, if you're surfing via https:// (instead of http://), or if you forget the "www." in front, it shows you a message directing you to the "correct" page address. (The reason for these seemingly arbitrary restrictions is explained here.) Also in this new version: dates of tagged posts are recorded.


BTW, this extension also lets you tag items on math.stackexchange.com.
