No way to add tags when composer loads through route



  • Hello nodebb devs!

    I'm not sure if this is a bug but for some reason I'm not able to add tags to posts underneath the compositon box when I reach my composer through the '/compose?' route which is an option offered which helps allow users to compose topics from other locations.

    A patch on this would be fantastic! 😉

    If not, how should I enable it if I'm being silly and missing something obvious?

    Thanks for any help anyone may be able to provide!

    You're not missing anything... the compose route isn't working out as well as I'd hoped.

    Thinking of removing it from core in the next version



  • If you do remove it, replacing it with some method to easily allow users to post to a specific category from a button located on a custom route / custom page would be great though - I'm sure there's already a way I'm not familiar with.

    It's working well for me at the moment with the exception of being able to add tags 🙂

    That being said; where are tags stored in the DB? I'm not seeing them on the posts and haven't seen a '_key: "tag:<tagname>"' thus far; any suggestions? I want to be able to sort posts by tag from within a custom view - I'm pretty sure there's already a way to do this I'm just now sure how.

    Thanks for your prompt response(s)!



  • Annnnd I just realized I can probably just make an ajax call to the /api/tags/tagName route and get all the information I need. 👍
