Tag also with...

Title
Tag also with...

Short, concise description of the idea
Allow users, from the "manage tags" page, to select a tag and tag all its entries with a different tag in addition to the original tag.

This would work similarly to the "rename tag" function, except that the original tag would remain on the entries while the new one is added.



For example, if I decide that all entries tagged with "sherlock holmes" also relate to "detective fiction," but not all "detective fiction" relates to "sherlock holmes," I could tag all "sherlock holmes" entries with "detective fiction" also, thus creating a tag group and sub-group.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Allows users to create broader tags around more specific tags
  • Allows users to edit more tags on old entries without going through entries manually

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Would be difficult to reverse if done by mistake
  • May be difficult to implement

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • The Manage Tags page would have to be redesigned at least a bit. Perhaps a drop-down menu that can be set to either "rename tag" or "tag also" would work.
