Adding Labels and Tags to Posts

The primary difference between tags and labels are the ways they are leveraged in the community.


Tags are information that users can enter to their individual posts that helps in creating a taxonomy for other users when searching for something.


Labels are a different type of method to create meta-categories for topics as a whole and are configured by the original author of a topic only. This can be used to help users that are browsing the community looking for posts on a specific overarching topic, or they can subscribe to labels if there is one that they find particularly interesting.

While tags are not required, we would suggest adding (a) tag(s) in order to help yourself find content you’re interested in. You can add more than one tag by separating them with a comma.


Labels are required to be added to posts on certain boards. To add a label, choose the one that best defines the content of your topic from the predefined list below “Choose a label” and it will automatically add the label to the post. If you fail to add a label, you will get the following error:
