Hello kickoff3pm!

Tags are short descriptions for a subject like a keyword. Tags can be useful if you have lots of products, they help to categotize the informationcan and help your customers to find what they want. Click on a tag and you will be taken to a page with the products marked with this tag. In CS-Cart, customers can add their own tags to products and this way they can easily find tagged products next time. If you don't need tags you can disable Tags addon (Administration -> Add-ons).

Don't know if it's more clear to you now ) i think that if there is not so many products in a store, tags are not necessary.

Best regards, Alt-team

Well thats what I assumed, I have about 20 wordpress sites and they use tags.

But in cs-cart I don't see anywhere where I as admin can add tags. In cs-cart it seems tags are to be used by members only. Am I right or wrong ?

This is a frustrating topic for me personally, because tags on a store are fantastic if implemented correctly, but I have never been able to get enough interest from the developers to actually implement them in a useful way.

Right now, tags are nothing more than bookmarks for users. That's their vastly underutilized potential right now. A customer can tag stuff and go to that tag later to view what they tagged. How is this any better than a wishlist?! Oh because you can have more than one. It would make more sense to let customer create and name multiple wishlists.

Tags are supposed to serve as an alternative navigation structure - so that, for example, if I see a product has a given tag, I should be able to click on that tag and view other related products, etc. This does work, although it is laid out in a clumsy and buried way.

But from a product catalog design perspective, this system should be available across the board on the administrative backend but it is not. For example, why can't you use this as a population criteria for product blocks? Or daily deals? Or setting up a seasonal menu? Or anything else? Make tags public or private, etc... Tags in a proper content management system are much more flexible - you could allow conditional content based on tags - e.g. show or hide a block based on a product tag - why not? There are a lot of batch processes that could be simplified if tags were better implemented. You could try to set up invisible product features to accomplish this, but this is pretty clumsy and adds a lot of bloat.

I've added a few tag recommendations to user voice and gotten feedback on developers that they were good ideas, but no implementation roadmap. One day I'll end up coding add-ins myself for it I suppose...

Don't bother with the tags. They aren't SEO friendly in cscart.

Yes, I agree. CS-cart developers. You made such a feature/addon, but don't bother to go a little further to make it SEO friendly. Have a look at how Magento do it!
