Add a view-modes tag, there are lots of questions about the subject. Here are the guidelines for new tags:

Most common tags already exist on a mature site. You should always favor existing tags; only create new tags when you feel you can make a strong case that your question does cover a new topic that nobody else has asked about before on this site.

  • I think this is a good suggestion, do you have any immediate examples of questions it should be added to? If we do any mass-update on this we should be careful to distinguish between view modes and form modes (we can create a tag for the latter too if it looks necessary)

  • Most of what comes up during a site search seem to apply to view modes. I've since earned the rep to create tags and created one. I can't bulk edit questions to add the tags though, since my rep isn't high enough for that. Jun 14, 2020 at 19:23
  • That search result cannot be used to prove the tag is needed. First, the search should be changed to just return questions. (We don't tag a question with views just because one of the answers says how to achieve a task with a view when the question was asking how to achieve a task with code for a custom module.)

  • Even the search link I used in the previous comment cannot be used as proof the tag is needed, since in that search page I can find a question containing the following sentences: I created a simple content type and a form mode for this content type. Where can I view this form mode after creating it? I see no option for form modes when creating a content type. (I highlighted the same words the search page highlights.)

  • Plus, there are questions where view modes appears in the question body, but the question is not really about view modes. (I can imagine a question saying I even tried changing the view mode settings, but I still have the same issue.)
