I work at a Large Anonymous Silicon Valley Company. We have 850 webs in the internal TWiki.

The company TWiki admins have finally agreed to install TagMePlugin. However, the only acceptable choice for us is to have it compartmentalized on a web-by-web basis.

From our TWiki admin:

So there are a couple problems that make this plugin unacceptable for now:

1. Tags are not per web as hoped, and display in a single drop-down for 
add/remove, not a scalable solution.

2. Tag search is also global.

While we might be able to solve one or both of those problems, it goes 
beyond "install this plugin" and so we'll put this on hold for now and 
prioritize it with other development efforts later in the quarter.

I think this would be an extremely valuable plugin but it's got a bad showstopper feature right now. Please help!

I have the same here, altough we only have 8 webs. The tags from one web have nothing to do with others. This is a must have option in most companies

If his is really a must have please consider funding a developer for this enhancement.

To add one more user voice to this bug: this would still be a very nice feature.

-- TWiki:Main.FlorianGross - 22 Sep 2008

I agree it's an interesting feature, thus I will see if I can implement it.

My main concern is: Shall we keep the existing behavior, or make the tagging just per web? Some "old" installations might use the "all web" feature, especially for search.

I've checked the code yesterday, and it shouldn't be that hard to tune to make it per web. But if it's per web, then all existing tags would be lost.

Also, from what I could grasp, but I didn't double-check, if 2 different webs have the same topic, they'll get the same tags, right?

Side-note, I guess I will then have to tweak the TagCloudPlugin accordingly too, but that should be pretty trivial once this part is done. I hope I'll have some "free" time this week for it, it's challenging, and could help some people, so I like it smile
