Better Also Tagged System in IPS 4.0


Recommended Posts

The also tagged topics in the topic view is a great enhancement to show visitors similar content.

But if IPS is more than a forum, a better Also Tagged System should be implemented.

IPS has blog entries, articles, custom databases, calendar events, etc.

The Also Tagged Content should be from every record from IPS, not only for forums topcis.

The administrator of the community should have the power to choose filters to display the same tagged records like:

  • cross databases
  • only the same database
  • only topics
  • topics and database records
  • most recent content
  • most visited
  • most commented
  • and so on...

Why limit also tagged to forum topics only? The content is the most important matter, not the format.

A better cache system for also tagged content from all community should also be applied, to avoid database search in each page loading, letting the administrador decide the frequency of the content recaching.

Great suggestion! It's so hard to link related content together between all apps. Everything feels so separate atm. Anyway to link related content across the website is a good way to help promote related content no matter which app holds the content. You land on a page about some cats and it somehow (ex: your suggestion above) has links to cat content from all apps.

Yes, a new "also tagged" system with all these options would be perfect to the new philosophy of the IPS, that is changing the main core from the forum to a generic system that deals with all the content and apps. IPS is much more than a forum.

I agree.

If there were a community suite that was based on content types of choice and categorized by main categories, it would be possible. So, when someone clicks on a category about dogs they will see a main category page filled with all the new articles, blog posts, images, downloads, forum topics, products, events, etc about dogs. When someone wants to post something about dogs, they could choose a content type (blog post, forum topic, image, download, product, article, event, etc) and then submit their preferred dog content. This would help all apps be actually useful...connected, and help end-users find content (ANY CONTENT) that matters to them most.
