Hi there,

 

The new forum is nice on the eyes and very good, don't get me wrong, but the thing I really notice about the transition is the lack of tagged contributions for finding content related to my problem solving. Is there any way to select from a MB3 table of non-free form tags when posting? 

 

Cheers, Tanamur

Unless you enforce their entry, tags will always be very hit or miss.  This forum software has a much better search engine than the last so it is probably better to rely on that.

Thanks @ebr, I am looking at the advanced search page Find Words - Tip: Search for a specific phrase by "enclosing it in quotes". Is there any other "either/or/both" syntax thingys we can use like | or ! to include and exclude? Cheers

Good day,

 

The tag's in-use at this forum, you can have fast access from the sidebar as the "Popular Tags" or from the forum footer as "Most used Tags".

 

Also we use prefixes for solved thread if you want to search by that as well.

 

We will apply more addon for ease this issue in the future.

 

My best
