No longer needed

Tagging was introduced into Core in April of 2016. If you are using Discourse 1.6.0.beta2 or later, you do not need this plugin.

See this post for more information.


This plugin provides tagging functionality to Discourse. When users create topics they can optionally attach tags.

Tags are a useful alternative to categories for some forums. For example if you were running a music forum, being able to tag a topic as "Hip Hop" and "Electronica" would be useful. If you were using categories you'd have to choose one or the other.


Follow our Install a Plugin howto, using git clone as the plugin command.

Once you've installed it, review the settings under admin and then enable tagging_enabled.


  • Users can tag topics with tags

  • You can restrict who can tag to a particular trust level

  • Users can choose to auto watch tags as desired

  • Users can list all tags, and filter topics by tag

  • There are bulk tools to assign tags to many topics at once and to rename tags.


If you have issues or suggestions for the plugin, please bring them up on Discourse Meta.


This plugin was influenced by Discourse Tagger plugin but has been rewritten from the ground up.



You can’t perform that action at this time.
