XWiki's tag feature lets you add keywords to your pages and retrieve all pages to which the keyword is associated. Any user can freely enter tags he considers suitable for a given page, whether those tags have already been used by others or not.

Tagging a page

This is the tagging mode setup by default in a new XWiki instance. It is quite easy to add a tag to a page or a document. This allows the creation of your own folksonomy on your XWiki through the use of tags.

To add a tag go to the bottom of the page and click on the "+" next to the word "Tags".


A Pop-up will appear inviting you to add the tags, separated by comma. Type in the tags and click "Add".


A list of suggestions may appear while you are typing. This indicates tags you have already used, and may want to use again.


If you want to delete a tag all you have to do is click on "X" next to the tag as follows:


Accessing Tags

After you have tagged your pages you can get access to the list of tags and subscribe to them through RSS.

Retrieve a tag

Once a set of pages is tagged, you can retrieve them on the Tags Summary page of your wiki (http://<server>/xwiki/bin/view/Main/Tags). The page displays the list of all available tags.


View Pages For a Tag

Once you have selected (clicked on) a tag, you get the list of all pages tagged with the chosen keyword. In addition, you can even choose to get an RSS feed on a tag. Everytime someone adds the given tag to a page or changes a page tagged with the keyword, you will receive a notification. Find out more about RSS Feeds here.


Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager).

You can also use the following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
