Drop "Tags" from pages

Reported by: jri Owned by: jri
Priority: Major Milestone:

We don't use tags anymore.
The tag cloud has already vanished from the sidebar.

We all have meditated badly to come up with the current site structure, which I feel is quite fine now. With our structure the user don't need tags to find pages. Seeing a page is a "draft" along with the possibility to see *all* the drafts (by clicking the link) provides no benefit for the user. Quite the contrary: she is distracted from the page content and is directed to pages she don't want to see.

Tags are great if we have large amounts of unstructured content, which we don't have.
According to our site when considering tags we should rather concentrate on structure and navigation.

We/I used tags until today, in the so called "ad-hoc"-content creation phase of the website. But i know how to find my page-contents tagged with "expression" also without the "tag" elements at the bottom of each page, so there is no problem for me now, as long as you leave my contents/pages untouched.

Out of the same reasons you mentioned above for the "tag"-navigation elements i removed the search box from our header some days ago (large amounts of content not yet available/ with our structure one should not need to search to find the pages). I would also argue, if someone searches for some specific information on parts of deepamehta, the entry point, at least from my point of view, would be a search engine. Maybe its just personal but i rarely use search boxes on single websites since they rarely lead to satisfactory results. But for the moment, i dont want to start another ticket for this discussion. IMO we can just leave the search box where it is right now.

Yes, the search box is possibly disposable as well.
However, for the moment I would stick to it as most users would probably expect it.
I'm fine with the current situation.
