Every time I try to start a new topic I get an error message that says I've used one too many tags in my post, then I have to keep messing around with the wording deleting and rewording until I get rid of whatever it is the system has flagged as a tag. Problem is, I don't know what a tag is. What is it? :confused:

you can remove some of the tags from the box below the post when it gives you this error

i think the tags are used for searches

I dont know why it does this, and others have mentioned them same issue on other sites runing the same software.

I consider it an unfixed bug in the forum software. :(

It happens to me here, quite frequently. But typically only when I copy a URL into a post.

Ok it should not happen anymore. I just got some code which fixed that bug so I patched that code here which takes care of that issue. :)

I had this issue quite a bit when starting threads and it was extremely annoying.

Can't post

I'm trying to post in a different forum and getting this error message

1. You do not have permission to create tags. You may only use existing tags.

I'm not creating anything but a normal post, I don't even know what tags are....

Any help here?
Thanks!

I think ( and i'm guessing ) that its looking for common words that you use in your post that will aid/help/speed up searches

I get this error when trying to start a thread:

Tags cannot be overly common words (now).

The word "now" is in the title, but there is not a box to display tags.. :confused:

Looks like another vBulletin bug. Tags are turned off now, so it shouldn't even be asking for them..
