Finding Your Blog Post TAGS - The Old Drop Down Menu Is Still There

By

Since the new ActiveRain changes last month we've all had to adjust to the new format.  One area that has been very frustrating for me is finding the tags I've put on my posts.  We used to have a very convenient drop down menu on the old sidebar, but with the change it disappeared.

Fred Griffin wrote a great post sharing one way he has found to find our tags.....TAG! Find Your ActiveRain Blog Posts In Seconds, By Searching The TAGS!

Reading the comments in Fred's post it's obvious that my frustration is shared by many other members.  Some people said Fred's way didn't work for them, others had found their own way of finding their tags.  Margaret Rome shared her idea in a post Find Your Previous Posts...Know Your Tags.  

What I have found to work: 

Open any past post and go to the bottom where the tags are listed for that post.  Click on any one of the tags and when it opens it also opens our old sidebar....with the drop down menu that we all miss so much!

Also:

When you are in blog writing draft mode, there is a link on the side "List My Tags" that opens a list of all your tags.

It's not as readily available as it once was....but the drop down menu is still there.

Sharon- a gift from the clouds!  Thank you.  I miss that old sidebar, especially where it shows you your archive out to the side.  I also like the old sidebar for when I see a new blogger.  It lets me see when they started and check out some of their posts. (suggested this)

Richard & Beth:  You are very welcome!

Patrick:  Have a great weekend!

Raymond:  You are welcome...now make sure to use that extra time wisely, LOL!

Dorie:  That's what is so great about AR....the way we all help each other!

Lou:  My pleasure!

Sheila:  It's been confusing for all of us...but the mental exercise is very good for our brains, LOL!

Joan:  It's not been easy...we need to find ways around the glitches.

Fred:  Thank YOU!  Your post inspired me to write this one...  I was so frustrated earlier this week trying to find one of my own posts and it was through that frustration that I fell upon my solution.  I didn't think to write about it until I saw your post.

Margaret:  I enjoyed our talk too!  I CAN'T WAIT for your post we discussed.  It's so simple and yet so brilliant!

Noah:  Hope it helps you!

Kathy:  I prefer the side bar to stay the same thoughout our pages...don't understand why the tags are only available when we are in draft mode????

Michael:  Ever changing....it keeps us on our toes!

Hi Sharon, I came over after seeing this post re-blogged by Kathy Streib. It's very helpful, and I am thankful you taking the time to do the research. I missed my old sidebar with all the archives.

Sharon, after Margaret Rome's suggestion that I visit this post regarding "tags" I'm happy to say that you are the one with the answer...THANK YOU!  I've been very frustrated not being able to find the old tags drop down and you showed me the way...thanks.

Jerry:  I found it, but it wasn't easy.  I wish it were available throughout our pages, not just in "draft" mode.

Mel:  I have a feeling there's still more navigating to come, LOL!  Thank you!

Margaret:  Thanks for sharing the link...and the brilliant idea!

Janice:  You are welcome!

Kathy:  An honor, thank you!

Roger:  I wish I had been thinking when I created all the tags I now have....way too many and too random.  

Gary:  If you need any help, let me know.

Nick:  To those of us that were used to using them, the change was a major issue....many members never used the tags in the first place and didn't miss them at all.  I'm so glad Margaret directed you my way!

Silvia:  I'm glad I could help!

Jason:  I drove myself crazy the other day trying to find a post I wrote....finally found it but it wasn't through the use of tags....I found the drop-down menu after the fact.
