Tags separator

Description

I know it has been discussed in forum:ideas (http://wordpress.org/extend/ideas/topic.php?id=1630) but still I think we must offer add tags separated by space.
I mean, in forum people was talking about standard use. The services I use most are flickr and delicious, and both of them uses space separated tags, so when I'm writing a post, I need to change the tags I write automatically to put commas.

I think we can offer in WordPress options the tag separator style (comma or space) to use.

try using the Seperator arg of the the_tags() call like most other template functions offer.

Eg:

the_tags('', ' ');

Uh... sorry, I'm talking about add tags when you are writing a post, in Post Tags, while editing. There's no way to use template tags here.

And offer in Options the way to add tags in edit page: spaces or commas.

ahh sorry.

given wordpress's support for multi-word tags, not sure how easily thats going to be able to be implemented without an extra option..

comment:4 bi0xid5 years ago

Multi-word tags works now. If you write, for example,

wordpress mu, blog

WordPress takes wordpress mu as a tag.

The idea is change the options, and have it work too when writing

"wordpress mu" blog

which is the other standard way to write tags on the net.

Replying to bi0xid:

Our philosophy is decisions, not options.

The problem with spaces is that if using a multi-word tag (like a name) you have to smoosh it into one fake word. This ticket has been sitting here for 2 years with no activity, so I'm going to close it.

Definitely not changing this at that point.

You could always replace the tags box if you wanted to. It's only UI.

Agreed. Reviewing it after all this time, I think that this is plugin territory. So I'll make it a plugin.

Thanks.
