Brand new tagging system - LD update

News

Hi all,

I’m excited to announce we’ve implemented a tagging system on LD to help keep everything in order :nerd:

When you post something, LD will use the title, description and image to try and automatically work out appropriate tags.

You’ll see these tags appear below the post’s description. Clicking on one will take you to a list of all other posts with that tag.

If our system gets the auto tagging wrong (which it might, as it is made by me after all :grin:) you can edit the post and manually add/remove tags after you’ve shared the deal.

So, for example, if you share an xbox one deal it would be good for it to have the “xbox one” tag so that you can easily find all other “xbox one” related deals.

In the future, we plan to add the ability to follow tags too, like you can other members or retailers at the moment.

Hopefully this update will not only help all you guys navigate Latest Deals and find what you’re looking for but it should help Google better understand the site too. We hope it's a win/win!

Please let me know how you find it, if you’d like anything done differently and, of course, any pesky bugs you might come across! :thumbsup:

What do you think of this?

Cool! One bug: it seems to be tagging everything with the word "price" as "rice"!

Haha should be fixed now :thumbsup: It was finding "EE" within the word "FREE" and so thought it was an EE deal. Duh! Fixed that silly behaviour now!

By any chance will we be able to embed images on deal posts? This is a feature I'd really like to see happening as it feels somewhat essential to show a more artistic/visual aspect of the product.

There's always the possibility of posting it on the comment section so it kinda works like that too but sometimes people don't read the comment sections.
