    I haven't noticed, but, what's the "Tags" and "Edit Tags"?

    I have noticed the tags and the fact that it no longer says our location or grade level when we post.

    Whoa-I missed the grade levels and location. I liked seeing the location-I always looked for locals. Hmm. I'm very excited to see the new changes.

    I liked seeing the location, too. And grade level helped a lot.

    I've been gone for a couple of months, so when I got back on like last week, there was just too many changes for me to even care for the moment. But, yeah, there's too many changes! I didn't notice the location and grade missing. I wonder why that was done?

    I'm going to crawl far out on a limb and guess that locations etc. were removed from the posts so they'd be a little less available to spambots and the like - and a number of members had removed their locations and other identifying information anyway.

    I just saw this post... sorry. I just upgraded the software a few days ago and it included a lot of new features by default. I am still learning about them myself and plan a more detailed announcement once I've decided which features we are going to use and how. In the mean time, everything should be covered in a general sense in the FAQ:
    http://forums.atozteacherstuff.com/faq.php

    Thanks for pointing that out. Many templates had to be reverted back to a non-customized format when the upgrade was done and I need to go back and fix things like that. :thumb:

    If you see any other problems or have questions about how to use forum features, please post in Forum Guidelines and Tips.

    Oh, thank you for putting grades and locations back, Amanda! It was crazy how much I missed them. People would refer to their classrooms in their post, and I had no idea what level they were even talking about, let alone grade. What a wonderful feature that you take for granted until it's gone!!

    I can't remember what order they were in. If anyone remembers, let me know. I'm sure it will bother someone if they aren't the same. :lol:

    You can read about tags here:
    http://forums.atozteacherstuff.com/faq.php?faq=vb3_board_usage#faq_vb3_tags

    The 'tag cloud' may eventually be shown on the forum home page so you can see easily search popular tags. Here is a preliminary tag cloud:
    http://forums.atozteacherstuff.com/tags.php

    So far the forum is auto-tagging threads based on the thread title, but I'm thinking it's not turning out to be very relevant so I may turn that off. It will work best if you add your own tags to threads. I think you can add them to other people's threads as well as your own.

    Is there any way, Amanda, we can click on our name on profile page to search all posts we've made ourselves? The only way I can track my posts now is to find a post I made and click my username...which if I've been off the forums for a while, it's hard to find a post from which I can pull down my menu....
