As a creator, tags are a great way to organize all of your different types of posts so that your patrons can easily find the posts they're looking for.
You can add tags to a new post from the "make a post" sidebar or to an existing post by clicking "edit" while viewing the post.
What kind of tags can I add?
Tags can be anything you want them to be, whether it's the type of content you produce, a reward, the title of a collection of posts, a popular keyword, etc. When creating tags, consider what things tend to recur in your work and what your patrons might be looking for when they're viewing your page.
How do I add multiple tags to a post?
Click "enter/return" once you're done adding the first tag and you'll be prompted to move onto the next tag.
Are there any limitations to tags?
Each post can have up to five tags. Each tag can be up to 25 characters (including spaces) and can even contain emojis!👍🏽 Capitalization matters, so if you are trying to add a tag you've used before, make sure to use the same letter case you previously used to ensure these tags will be grouped together.
Can I edit tags?
Sure can! Simply go to edit an older post and scroll down to the tag field, where you can remove or add additional tags. There is currently no way to edit a tag across multiple posts in one go, so you will need to click into each individual post to add/edit a tag.
How will my patrons see tags?
When a patron is viewing the "Posts" section of your page, they'll see a “Filter” section on the left-hand side that'll list all of the tags you've created. If they click one of the tags, the page will show all of the posts containing that tag. They can also click a tag straight from within one of your posts, leading them to all of your posts with that tag.
Can tags be searched using the Patreon search bar?
There is currently no way to view all posts on Patreon tagged with a specific tag.
