Add/delete blog tags

Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 1.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Add/delete blog tags.


A tag is a relevant keyword or term associated with a blog entry, describing it and enabling keyword-based classification of information for the purpose of retrieval. Typically, a blog entry will have one or more tags associated with it.

You may add new blog tags when adding or editing a blog entry or via the "Add/delete tags" link in the Blog Menu block.

Tag types

There are two types of tag:

  • User defined tags - personal tags that any user may add
  • Official tags - added by an administrator and available for any site user. Official tags are added in the Website-Administration Block under Appearence -> Manage Tags (Moodle 1.9). In former versions admins added official tags while editing a blog post in a separate field.

If you need to add official tags as a teacher, contact your administrator and ask for the capability moodle/blog:manageofficialtags to be allowed. This capability has been deprecated in Moodle 1.9.
