How do you do Tags?

In ~10 years I have never added a "tag" in a message - never had the need .😀  I was planning to do one now but cant for the life of me see how.  The FAQ says.....

  1. Navigate to an interesting post or comment.
    When you're at a place where you can read the whole message, you will see the Tags area.
  2. Click in the Add Tag field and type your tags.
    You can type more than one tag - just put a comma between tags.
  3. Click Add Tag.
    The Tags area is updated to show your new tags. That's all there is to it.

Well... where are the mysterious "Tags area" and the "Add Tag field" hiding ? - I don't see anything like that.

Cheers

Re: How do you do Tags?

Funny that. I see it. There is a red clickable line at the LH bottom side of each post " Add tags". Click that. IT's also in the compose screen at the bottom - "Message tags".

Re: How do you do Tags?

Cheers Howard.  Here is what I see in your message - no can see.  Just had a thought I am using Firefox on my Macs and I have disabled a few things (poppy up thingies).  I wonder if that might be causing it to not appear?

Re: How do you do Tags?

And the clickable "add tag" is at the bottom of your post. To be franck I've never bothered with this either. Use seems to be infrequent amongst the community. Could be abrowser or platform issue.

The add tag doesn't appear in Edge Canary either.

Just fired up Opera and its not there either - although that annoying red down arrow does appear floating about on the right hand side of the page - which is what I disabled in Ffox.

The latest TAG is https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Virgin-TV-V6/Flashing-red-white-light-V6/m-p/4281110 

I think this option must only be for the forum team now, and maybe VIP Ranks, the forum used to provide the members the option to tag any message in a thread

Not for VIPs exclusively.

It does look as if there may be some restrictions in place.  I just got a friend with a 'recently joined' rank to check and the 'add tag' button does not appear.

I will ask a question behind the scenes and see what I can find out.
