    Hi, and welcome.

    A Tag is a label attached to a post to identify its subject or theme. Think of it as a cross between a name on a file folder and a hashtag. For our purposes, it's a way to permit some thematic/topical association for posts. Having Tags makes searches easier and also allows users to keep track of posts that carry certain Tags.

    Take a look at the posts written by Front Page writers, and you'll see Tags in the left sidebar that you might find instructive. The Tags that are currently the hottest are also displayed in a black stripe at the top of the Daily Kos home page.

    I hope that's enough information to get you started. For other general information about the site, feel free to check out our Knowledge Base, in particular this link: https://helpdesk.dailykos.com/kb/general-tutorials/quick-start-guid...
