I was just looking at this question that is tagged with the user-reference tag.

I'm not sure what this tag means. It doesn't seem to relate to any module and doesn't have a description.

Should it just be a synonym of the entity-reference tag?

Is there a generally accepted way of finding the meaning of tags that you don't know (other than just Googling it?)

User Reference is part of the References module (now all but deprecated).

It shouldn't be a synonym of entity ref, there's some overlap but the way they operate is very different.

A Google search for "drupal user_reference" turn up References as the top hit, so I'd go with that :)

  • Got ya - I saw the References module but didn't know it was related.
