Tiki Folksonomy Implementation

Related Topics

Overview
Freetags are the way to solicit content authors and/or users to create a taxonomy structure for your site. Unlike categories, which are pre-defined, Freetags give the authors freedom to define their own structure (or lack of structure - with Freetags you can have "Cars","Autos","Automobiles" as tags)

To access
Click the Tags icon Tags on the Admin Panel
or
Access http://example.org/tiki-admin.php?page=freetags

Tabs
This page contains the following tabs:

Note
Categories can be used to create a defined taxonomy structure and to provide access control. Freetags can not be used to provide access control.



Note
The following information should be migrated to the Freetags section of the Tiki User and/or Admin Guides

This page is about Freetags, which is the folksonomy implementation of TikiWiki. The name is based on the name of the underlying library from Gordon Luk: http://www.getluky.net/freetag/.

Though similar in function to categories, freetags work somewhat differently. Also, freetags should not be confused with backlinks-to-index style tags discussed further at Documentation Status.

Basically folksonomy tagging means/is based on:
  • everybody can assign keywords to anything
  • bottom-up instead of top-down categorization
  • from chaos comes order
  • emergent patterns are more powerful than imposition of categories

See: Multilingual tags

What can I tag within Tiki?

You can currently tag:

Modules

  • freetag : that allows to add and remove tag from a current object
  • freetags_current : that displays the current tags of an object. Only for a wiki page.
  • freetags_prefered : Shows the favorite tags of a user. The number of tags is the value of the parameter rows defined at the module assigment.
  • freetags_most_popular: Shows the most popular tags. The number of tags is the value of the parameter rows defined at the module assigment.
  • freetags_morelikethis: Shows the objects that have the same tags than an object. Only for a wiki page. The number of objects is the value of the parameter rows defined at the module assignment.


User

When offered to do so (for instance, editing wiki pages), just enter your tags into the textfield separated by spaces.

Image


You can browse the available tags by clicking on one, when seeing it somewhere.

Image


It will take you to tiki-browse_freetags.php with the tag centered in the morcego browser, if that feature is enabled.

Image


The syntax of a tag is defined by the admin setting. Tags are separated by space(s). If you want to enter a tag with a space - if the admin setting allows it, you must enclose it into double quotes. Example: in the module freetag, if you enter: "computer science" ibm pc, you will add 3 tags "computer science", "ibm" and "pc"

Note about usage in features different than wiki pages:
For the moment, you can only use freetags in module - the module finds out for what object the freetag has been added looking at the url param.


Note about usage in forums:
If you wish to remove a tag attributed to a forum thread, you will need to open the 1st post of the thread. (Tiki 12.2)
