Mass Tag Topics

This is a very useful plugin, but it seems it does not work as expected. When you change a tag using Mass Tag Topics it removes all previous tags from the topics and assigns the entered one. For example, if you already have topics with different tags:

  • Topic 1 (tag 1, tag 2)
  • Topic 2 (tag 2)
  • Topic 3 (tag 1)

and you want to add another one "tag 3" to all of them, you can not use Mass Tag Topics for this. Because if you will select these topics and will enter a new "tag 3" using this plugin, you will have this:

  • Topic 1 (tag 3)
  • Topic 2 (tag 3)
  • Topic 3 (tag 3)

And you will loose all other tags. A have lost all my one hour work because of this.

I think it could be great that there will be some more options: (1) merge entered tags with current ones an (2) remove entered tags from selected topics if they have ones.

Thank you!

That's how it was designed and that's what described:

This plugin will give the ability to moderators who can edit content to mass add/remove prefix/tags in topics.

I'll take a look in a future version, no ETA at all due to IPS 4.6 updates.

+1 that was what I was expecting the behaviour to be reading the description.

It's 'Mass Add' on a topic with no pre-existing tags, however on a topic with pre-existing tags it is 'Mass Replace.'

It would be helpful after assigning tags that you are returned to the forum page number you were on.  For example in 1 section we need to tag 75+ pages of posts, every time we assign the tags to the topics we are returned back to Page 1 of that forum.  It'll take me about 600 clicks changing pages to assign 4 sets of tags to 75 pages.  That change alone for people managing larger forums would be a huge time saver :smile:
