    Hi guys, i thought it would be a good idea to add tags to each topic we write/start so we can easily find talked about items again. Sometimes when a new person asks a question, you have to trawl though loads of topics in order to find one you know has been covered before.
    I will go through some of my topics and add tags for easy access.

    At top right of the page there is a box that says - wait for it - Tags. :) So if the comment contains say hatching or incubation, you would put this in the box and click add.
    What would be most beneficial is a 'search box' for a particular word. I don't think there is one as yet, but there is a list of popular tags on the left hand side of the index.
    If you were to put in a search in google it would pick up the words tagged in our topics.

  9. I thought a search feature would be good, Sara perhaps you can mention that when you see your man tomorrow
    where I went wrong was trying to tag before I posted x

    didnt want to comment on there, but which farm animals get married and need wedding dresses,
    not sure what you think Sara might even be yours

    and what is an RSS

    Is there any chance of the search feature being added?
    Now there are so many postings its becoming more difficult to search back through the them all to find a relevant query/answer, so we don't end up duplicating stuff and people can find what they are looking for more easily with out the same questions being asked again and again.

  13. Hi Sarah,
    I hope to do some farmingfriends forum work tomorrow (Thursday 22nd July 2010). Looking at plugins for the forum and backing up the whole forum! Need to back up the forum before add any new plugins as sometimes plugins can upset the system so want to make sure the forum is completely backed up todate.

    Hi Mama and Dave,
    Sarah has described adding tags perfectly!
    At top right of the page there is a box that says Tags. Add the keywords mentioned in your post in the box eg tagging search (as Sarah has done above) and click add.

    An alternative way of tagging is - When you start a new thread there is a tagging box at the bottom and you just add the words to the box with a comma and space between and then they will appear in the tagging section when you send the post.

    Hi Mo,
    RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication" and the "RSS feed for this topic" means you can click on this and then it has a subscribe now button and this will add a file with the page info onto the toolbar of your firefox browser (if using firefox) and then you can click on the file to see if there is any updated info. You can sometimes subscribe by email so everytime that page is updated you would get an email about it. Just another way of keeping track of info you are interested in or website/forum pages.

    Hope that helps

    As new people join - Talisa and Kayla in particular, There are so many of the same questions being asked, it would be great to have that search box to save repeating everything each time..

  17. hiya i have just been looking into this issue as if i had just found farming friends, and i think one answer could be, when someone first finds farming friends they see the forum heading which takes them straight into the posts perhaps a few lines at the top explaining how the tags work would help,
