Word Wednesday: Tagging

By
Education & Training with U.S.: I specialize in helping agents who have been in the business 2 years or less create a thriving business.

"You learn something new every day."

Have you ever experienced having trouble "tagging" an AR member in a blog post?  I learned recently that if you don't Follow a person, you can't tag them in your own blog post. So, if tagging doesn't work check to be sure you are Following them.

There is also a maximum of 10 tags per post.  I learned that in putting together Second Chance Saturday last week.  This "tagging" limit is within the body of the post itself, not the comments section. 


Sometimes, though, it's just the AR gremlins and in those cases you can always "tag" manually by going to the members profile and copy and paste their address just as you would to create any link.

Hi Dorie Dillard ,
It happens.  I have discovered a few that I was not Following that I thought sure I was.

Hi William Feela ,
There is always the manual tag if you can't get the shortcut to work.

Hi Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®,CRS, 
The tagging limit is within the body of the actual blog post, Paul.  When I do my Second Chance Saturday post, I tag the authors of each article.  When I reach 10, I have to do the rest of the tags manually. I don't think there is any limit in the comment section.    Sorry I didn't make that more clear.  I have edited and added a sentence to clarify that issue.  Thanks!

Hi Carol- unless it has changed (and goodness knows that could be the case), if someone you don't follow comments on your post, you can still tag them.  What I don't know if it's been fixed or addressed is that if you are responding to a comment on your post and try to comment on their comment with a tag, it may not go through. I think you have to tag them in a separate comment.

It can all be so confusing. I would imagine for newbies this must be difficult. It was much simpler when I joined.

Carol, some tag everyone commenting, and they only say THANKS.   If you tag me, I do enjoy going back to see what they had to say.  Good information to make it clearer!

Technology is always great when it works but some days the gremlins work overtime.

Thanks for covering this, Carol Williams! My biggest issue with tagging is tagging someone at the beginning of a sentence, continuing to type out the sentence, then delete one letter to make an edit - only to have the cursor jump back and delete the person I tagged at the beginning of the sentence!  Lesson learned: save tagging until the end. - Tim
