How do I use Tags?

Tagging your Media allows your audience to find relevant content either by clicking on a displayed tag or by doing a search. For example you could create a tag named Science and assign it to all science related content.

Tags can be added to your account in one of two ways:
  • The primary way of adding tags is to enter them directly into the tags bar when you are uploading or editing a media item.
  • Alternatively, by navigating to "Site Settings" in your Admin Panel and clicking on the 'Tags' tab.

Entering Tags Directly into the Tags Bar when Uploading New Media

1) Start by clicking on Upload from your Admin Dashboard or your home page.

2) Next, upload a Media item and enter all of the tags you would like to associate with this item in the tags bar.

3) Any tags that you already have saved in the system will automatically pop-up when you start entering a tag.

4) Once you're finished entering all the appropriate tags and other information click "Publish". All of your new tags will automatically be added to the 'Tags' section in the "Site Settings" pane of your Admin Panel.

5) To add tags to an existing item simply click on the media item and click "Edit". Add the tags in the tags bar and click "Update".

Adding New Tags in the Site Settings Pane of your Admin Panel

If you'd like to set up a list of tags prior to uploading media then this is where that can be done. 

1) To enter new tags through your Admin Dashboard, start by clicking on the cog icon on the right side of the site header bar, and selecting Settings.

2) Click on the 'Tags' tab in the Settings sidebar. From here, click on "Add New" to add a new tag.

3) A small window will pop up where you can add a Tag name and an optional permalink. Once this is done click "Save" to create the tag. 

4) From the 'Tags' tab you can also see how many videos are using this tag. Clicking on the blue number next to the tag will show you a list of all of the videos using this tag.

Searching for Videos Using Tags

1) To search for videos by tag, click on the Cog icon on the right side of the site header bar, and select View Site.

4) This will bring up a list of all available tags on your site. The number next to each tag represents the number of videos associated with this particular tag.

5) You can also search for a word in the search bar and all media items containing a tag with this word in it will pop-up.
