Flickr - alphabetized tags

    Newer Older

    July 10, 2010

    The top view is of the Flickr tag cloud, alphabetized using this script:

    The bottom view is Flickr's default display, which makes little sense to me. If you're going to make them a cloud instead of a list, they should at least be alphabetized.

      Wil, where are you finding this display? When I click on "Add a tag," I get a big pile of tags without formatting. Like this. At least, mine are alphabetized.

      I apparently misunderstood, Wes. :-)

      This is the actual tag list on the photopage, not the list I see when I click "add a tag" and "choose from your tags." On *that* list, I see the same as you... :-)

      Sorry for any confusion.

      I've been on Flickr for two years, and I've never see a list like yours above. On my photopages, under "Tags," I see a bunch of gray tags, without formatting. Do you have a GM script or some other that is giving you these blue, formatted tags? I would love to see a wider screenshot.

      This is basically what I've seen for five years...

      I do use a script to show the tags in a list form (instead of the cloud), but the default view for tags should appear much like they do above.... Searching for a screenshot...

      I *am* using several scripts on that layout, but none that affect the way the tags appear. They are gray until I hover over them. But they are always formatted as multiple words...

      Here's a screenshot of *your* tags:

      That's odd. Yes, those gray tags are what I see for that particular photo. But if I click "Add a tag" and then "Choose from your tags," I get this mishmash:
      Blue, but unformatted.
