Edition: BlueSpice pro, BlueSpice Farm, BlueSpice Cloud Version: 4.1+


SocialTags provides the option of linked pages to SocialEntities.

Warning!Pages in the namespaces SocialEntity and User are indexed by search engines by default until prior to version 3.1.13. If you run a public wiki with an earlier version, you should exclude these namespaces from being searchable unless you want these pages to be indexed by public search engines.

A social entity such as a discussion topic is linked to a wiki page. Users can update these page associations as needed.

The page Special:SocialTags shows a filterable list of SocialEntities that share the same tag. The function "watch" is automatically added to all social entities.
