Adding suggestion to the tag field

Adding suggestion to the tag field

Thursday 25 October 2007 10:00:09 am - 1 reply

Tags is a nice thing, but when you have a lot of them and have many authors and editors it's messy because of spelling mistakes, using different words for the same thing etc. (even though some would claim that this the nature of tagging).

Anyway, to help authors and editors tag their content better I would suggest that the tag field implements the Suggestion-pattern from AJAX (http://ajaxpatterns.org/Suggestion) including a progress indicator (http://ajaxpatterns.org/Progress_Indicator) while searching for similar tags to choose from.

Here's a few screenshots from Drupal 5:
