ARCHIVOPEDIA FOLKSONOMY SEARCH

Use the "Archivopedia Folksonomy Tags" bar at the bottom of each article to add terms describing it. Add one tag at time. Do not use commas or attempt to add more than one tag at a time.

 How to add a tag:
 Type a description of the tag you would like to add in the box and then click the "Add Tag" 
 Button. Tags may be more than one word. If you make a mistake, you can remove the tag and 
 start again.
 How to delete a tag:
 To remove a tag, you must undo the add tag action for the page. To do this, click on 
 the "history" tab at the top of the page. Look for the description "Added tag: '[name of 
 tag]'). Click the "(undo)" option to the right. Save the page. The tag is now removed.

Search by tag

Use the "Archivopedia Folksonomy" search tool on the left side of the screen just under the wiki search box.

 Note: This feature is still being tested.

About Archivopedia's Folksonomy Search

This feature was first introduced on January 9, 2008. The first version utilized various social bookmarking services using a predetermined tag "ArchivopediaBookmarks" combined with a Custom Google Search Engine. The original version encountered difficulty as Google was not reliablyindexing these services for the ArchivopediaBookmarks tags. The newest version of this features uses an internal tagging mechanism, and does not rely on social bookmarking services for tagging internal pages. Tagging these pages is still an option, as the AddThis button allows users to tag Archivopedia pages with their favorite social bookmarking service.

Tags do not automatically appear in the Archivopedia Folksonomy search results. All tags must be identified by Google before they are included in the folksonomy search results. Therefore, it may be several days until search results appear using the Archivopedia Folksonomy search box. During the testing phase, search returns with tags cannot be guaranteed.


Browse by tag

 There are several methods to browse by tag: 
 1) click on the tag at the bottom of the page to find similarly tagged pages, 
 2) go to the tag results page, or 
 3) use the tag cloud below
 Tag Cloud
 Clicking links using this feature creates page-within-page viewing. 
 To avoid having to refresh, click "Tag Cloud" above to return 
 to the original view. Alternately, right click on the links to 
 open them in a new window. Do not use your browser's back button.
 

FOLKSONOMY SEARCH BEYOND ARCHIVOPEDIA
