I installed the tags extension.

However I do not see how I would add "tags" to a blog.

I have read all of the docs.  They all explain what to do with tags but
I CANNOT find what you do to acutally get a tag attached to a blog.

I KNOW it is easy, but it has me completely stumped !!!

So any help will be GREATLY Appreciated....

Maybe there's some confusion here -- you don't get tags like they have
on Flickr or Wordpress.

The "tags" part of the name refers to new Radius tags that you can use
anywhere on your site.

The radius tags made available by this extension are:

<r:next by="title">

These tags will output text according to the documentation. If you need
help on Radius, I would suggest reading the Radiant Handbook
( or having a look at the
"Normal" layout in your admin panel.

One of the several Radiant extension tags is <r:tag_list /> which
according to the docs says will return a list of tags for the blog.

So everything I have read, tells me that I should be able to add tags
like other blogging systems.

Oh, okay, my bad...

I attempted to install the Tags extension, but was unable to because of
it's dependency on the has_many_polymorphs plugin. The
has_many_polymorphs plugin appears only to be compatible with Rails 2.2.
However, Radiant uses 2.1.

Does anybody know if it's possible to either:

-run Radiant on Rails 2.2
-or, run has_many_polymorphs on Rails 2.1?

In Radiant 0.7.0, Rails 2.1 was included -- nothing changed in that
regard for the Radiant 0.7.1 release.

Do you have the has_many_polymorphs plugin installed?

I found it !!!!!!!!

After the tags extension is installed, in Admin, when editing a "Page"
in "Pages"  click on the "more" link.

You will find an entry "Tags"  Enter you list of tags for each blog

You cannot believe how many hours I am spent looking for this....

I will update the wiki on this
