<p>The <b>tags</b> are keywords the users can attach to a subject. These tags are used to group subjects or to generate statistics on a specific subset of subjects. The tags a user can attach is free. Nevertheless, if a list of tags is defined, the system will present these <b>proposed tags</b> in a drop-down list.</p>
<p>The list of these proposed tags can be defined by the Administrator, by forum (and by language). The lists are simple <b>csv</b> files stored in the /upload/ directory.</p>
