Tags not separated by a comma considered as one
« on: May 02, 2014, 03:11:19 am »
If members enter tags without separating them with a comma, the whole field is considered as one tag, which is not a correct behavior I think.
The default rule here should be, imo, one word = one tag, except if user separate them by a comma.

I kind of feel the opposite way that each is tag unless by a comma

Maybe I wasn't clear (I'm not sure even I understand really what I wrote  ;D ??? ;D), so I try to explain it better:

The current behavior for tags is this one :

If I type this in the tag field the following tags : home blue green sky people
The result I get is only one tag : "home blue green sky people". Wich is not good.
I should get : "home" "blue" "green" "sky" "people" (5 differents tags).

What I think is a better behavior :
- home blue green sky people : 5 tags as a results
- home blue, green sky, people : 3 tags as a result ("home blue", "green sky" and "people")

Don't you agree ?

No. since you could have two word tags.
It does say it needs to be comma separated.

There is no mention that keywords needs to be comma separated (see attachement).

And (at least in photography world) two words tag are an exception, not the rule. Second point, you certainly know also that most part of the time users won't read small letters instructions. So even if the comma separation were mentionned you can be sure that some users would forget to use it.

If you want to use the tag cloud you have to be sure that you can prevent the mistake of forgotten commas. If you don't do that your tag cloud is absolutely unusable. How do you deal with a keyword like that : "sky horse green landscape Island nature" ? I really wonder. And if you have several like that the purpose of Tags is just broken.

For now, on my website, I can't use tag cloud, because ALL my users enter their keywords without commas. And if I can permit to insist on this point, this is the rule in all professionnal photography softwares and websites.

Will look into future versions into added text to say to use a comma to separate tags.
