To change the permissions for tags, do the following.

1. Select the Group by clicking its title located on the left.
2. Find the desired Action. Possible Actions are:

  • Configure Options Only. Users can edit the options except the permissions of tags.
  • Access Administration Interface. Users can access user administration interface of tags.

The functions are:

  • Save. Saves the Tags options and stays in the current screen.
  • Save & Close. Saves the Tags options and closes the current screen.
  • Cancel. Closes the current screen and returns to the previous screen without saving any modifications you may have made.
  • Help. Opens this help screen.

Quick Tips[edit]

  • If you are a beginning user, you can just keep the default values here until you learn more about using global options.
  • If you are an advanced user, you can save time by creating good default values here. When you set up menu items and create tags, you will be able to accept the default values for most options.
  • For example, to show the 'Tag Name' for an Tagged Items List in your Tags menu items, then set that option to "Show" here and it will be the default value.
