    ** PLEASE use this thread to compile and add to tags that are being used in the classifieds to help find items.**

    Below is information to help you post/find Classifieds using tags to find certain items and by Regional location. Please review. As more tags are used/needed this thread will be updated.


    Include a Regional Tag:
    To help our users find your classified ad by region if a)you are only selling locally/regionally or b)they are only looking for classifieds locally/regionally.

    The below tags should be used to mark your region and keep the tags consistent.

    southeast
    westcoast
    southwest
    midwest
    mid-atlantic
    northwest
    northeast
    canada-west
    canada-east
    european
    theisland


    Region Searching Tips:
    Tag Cloud Search by Region - Use Links below to find items in your region.

    southwest

    midwest

    mid-atlantic

    northwest

    canada-west

    Advanced -
    Use the Forums Advanced search to specify a classifieds forum category and include a regional tag.
    Mustang Forums at StangNet - Search Forums


    Other Useful Tags -

    Wanted to Buy - wtb
    Wanted to Buy
    Wanted to Trade - wtt
    Wanted to Trade



    EXAMPLE
    Let's say I live in the Southeast.

    Well then we need to tag the thread for the region by using the tag fields and placing 'southeast' in the post.

    Now if I want to see all threads for the Southeast.

    Mustang Forums at StangNet - Threads Tagged with southeast

    I can then do an advanced search and search only specific forums and with the desired tag needed.

    Is the tag system not working? I don't see any options to add tags to posts, and the example search above returns an error.
