    Please, please! Don't replace the categories by tags!

    It's two independent classification system.

    But you can supplement the current category system by tags.

    I have idea: it is possible to adding own tags by readers (meybe only registered readers)? F.e. this forum use it, Amazon use it...

    Agreed: Tags would be wonderful, but along with categories, not as a replacement.

    I second douglsmith: Tags plus categories is the way to go. Additionally the tagging system needs type ahead feature for better reusability.

    YES, tagging is a generic problem that i think we all like to see solved on the core level.

    Keep tags and categories separate.

    I like the idea of using tags for classification.

    Categories are good for defining a drawer, and can also be used for access controls to certain content (membership etc)

    Obviously there has to be migration taken into account, but this is relatively easy.

    The system has to be flexible allowing you to modify how the keyword data is presented on your page with various delimeters between words and between tags, and various options for wrapping the tags in link code.

    In my mind it should be just a backend feature, that Tag plugin authors could build upon.

    This would allow a user to easily switch between different implementations of tagging and not have database problems.

    If a front end is also created, it should be easy to override it. Maybe the front end itself should be a plugin.

    Having tags would be great also if there was a del.icio.us like feature where someone could add tags together and view articles from both tags in a blog view.

    Very useful instread of sub categories. For example, music+reviews or music+shopping ecc

    The del.icio.us style of tag clouding is very desirable as well. Where the common tags show up in a larger font, and less used tags are smaller.

    Typo does this really well (but of course has it's other problems which is why I switched back to WordPress).

    As long as it doesn't replace the current categories system.

    If this gets implemented, definitely agree that it should be able to use tags already created by UTW and Bunny's Tag plugin.
