SocialTags provides the option of linked pages to SocialEntities.

Usage / features[edit | edit source]

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.
