We're excited to bring in 2018 with a long-requested feature: tags for your posts.
To get started, you'll do what you already know how to: include a hashtag in your post, like #newfeatures. Readers will see a clickable link (like that one) to a page that lists out all posts using that hashtag. Each tag even has its own RSS feed, so readers can subscribe to the topics they enjoy!
If you've already included hashtags in your posts, you don't need to lift a finger — all those posts are magically searchable now. If you haven't been tagging your posts, now is a great time to start!
In the future, tags will be even more useful:
- Find posts about certain topics among the public blogs on Read Write.as
- Search for posts by multiple tags, instead of just one
- Pin tags to your blog's navigation, just like you can with posts (a potential feature — if you like this idea, please vote for it here!)
We hope this makes Write.as useful in even more ways. As always, let us know what you do or don't like about tagging — and happy new year!
