I trying to edit a question: What is the best way to add Jquery to my drupal site without building modules and keeping it cut and paste? and when I add the tag and go to Save Edits the system says:

Nothing appears to have changed.

When I try to add a tag:

jquery is a synonym of javascript, so actually nothing changed because jquery was automatically replaced by javascript in the tags.

  • I think that this is not correct, one question related to the jquery configuration is not a question related to javascript. Commented Dec 3, 2015 at 13:43
  • @AdrianCidAlmaguer The synonym does seem to be a bit problematic, but that is an entirely different question. Commented Dec 3, 2015 at 13:44
  • In this case I think that jquery don't should be show in the tags available or at least available with a message indicating the situation. Commented Dec 3, 2015 at 13:48

    I think javascript is the right tag - we don't encourage jQuery-specific questions because they're off topic. If a question is about Drupal's JS API, javascript is sufficient for tagging in my opinion. If it also needs jQuery, there's a good chance it's a question for Stack Overflow

  • @AdrianCidAlmaguer I agree with Clive - "question related to the jquery configuration" is probably not Drupal specific enough to be on-topic here. And Drupal's JS ecosystem is jQuery based, so anything JS in Drupal is also jQuery-related.

Mad Scientist explained why you are getting that error message. Clive and Mołot explained that jQuery questions are off-topic for us.

The reason why is marked as synonym of on Drupal Answers are essentially two:

  • On Drupal Answers, those two tags are synonyms, which means that a question about using jQuery on Drupal is for us a normal question about JavaScript. This doesn't mean that for other sites those tags are synonyms; that is quite not true on Stack Overflow where, anyway, a question about plain JavaScript will get the _jquery_tag removed.
  • The synonym has been set to avoid keeping to edit questions that use . This includes questions migrated from other sites.
