    How do I tag a message with a relevant tag?

    I see "trackbacks" under the reply box but nothing that indicates a "tag". Is that the tag you are referring to? (I'm thinking it's not because) I am confused because I vaguely recall seeing both "tag- up to 5" AND "trackback" under my introductory post as options but I haven't seen "tag" since. Where is it?

    i copied this section from johndroids post

    For example, if I were starting a thread talking about "How to get Outlook Sync working with my Droid" I may tag the thread as follows:

    outlook, outlook sync, outlook droid, droid sync

    This makes it easier for Search Engines to find out what we are talking about and gives humans the ability to click on certain tags and view all the threads related to that particular tag/subject.

    that is what was ment by tagging... hope that helps

    This may be dumb. But is it possible to add tags using the deoid forums app? I can't den to find the option.

    I usually purposely avoid tagging because nobody uses the forum search feature anyway (or there wouldn't be 100 different posts about how to SBF or upgrade from froyo to the GB leak in the D2 ROM forum. I actually saw a thread asking for LGB v0.8 themes that was literally one above a thread titled "Working LGB v0.8 themes" with a one day gap between the two posts, so the second poster HAD to see the first thread)

    missing step #1

    I would love to 'tag' a post, but I cannot find any place on this web site that will give me a LINK to POST. So I'm not going to be tagging much of anything.

    missing step #1

    Hawaiian Princess - Thank you, but my 'missing step #1' was that I could not find any thing that would allow me to originate a post. And if I cannot originate a Post, there is nothing to tag..... :confused: Just a frustration of a newby.


    flcastillo1975 - Thank you - great explanation! :excl:

    On the bottom of the thread creation it asks for tags in red. They can be separated by a comma; max is 25 tags I believe.
