A tag in a site or blog is a label that explicitly categorises site content. These can then be presented allowing a site user to select items of potential interest based on those categories.
A word or short phrase within site content can be $$TAG$tagged$$ by enclosing it with an inline $$TAG$$ directive. In this case the word tagged has become a tag (as that one just has). Tags should be as short as possible while still being meaningful. Making tags that are excessively long will make the site-wide tag selection list or cloud cluttered and confusing. Tagged words or phrases can contain markup (e.g. italics) but not embedded VWcms directives. Tags are not case sensitive.
An alternative to inline tagging is to add a single $$TAG$$ directive containing all the terms to be used as tags for that section.
The above directive does not appear in the site content. Individual terms are comma-separated and white-space is not signficiant.
The synopsis facility is used to list sections containing selected tags.
Tags are generally presented as a list or as a cloud. When a tag is clicked on all relevant sections have a synopsis presented. On this page these will appear here ...
