Example title
As a system operator you can enable/disable tagging on contents and administrate tags in the system. Tags are primarily stored on contents as a string. For administrating reasons they are stored in Content Repository, too. When somebody tags a content, tag will not be saved in Content Repository just when an administrator synchronizes the missing ones.


Enable/disable tagging on contents

By default tagging is disabled on contents. There are 2 ways to enable it.

Content type definiton

For enabling tagging on a specified content type just add the following field to its content type definiton:

<Field name="IsTaggable" type="Boolean">
  <Title>Is Taggable</Title>
  <Description>Enable tagging capability for content.</Description>

In Content Explorer

For enabling tagging on a specified content just check its IsTaggable checkbox on contents datasheet in Content Explorer.

Synchronize tags

When somebody adds a new tag to a content it won't be stored in Content Repository but on content. For enabling administrating functionalities for new tags you have to save them to Content Repository using synchronization. Pressing Sync Tags button saves unsaved tags to Content Repository and removes unused ones excluding blacklisted items.
