There are over 2000 questions related to using REST with Drupal. It is clearly a subject that many people are interested in and many people have problems with. I think this is a good opportunity for a tag.

    When you add a tag to a question also try to remove the tag from the question title to remove redundant information. For example when you have a question like "How do I create users via REST?" and you tag it rest then edit the title to "How do I create users" (which both is still too broad for a good title, but I think you get the idea).

  • I added the [rest] tag to a few issues yesterday as a trial - I'm not about to go off and immediately tag 2000 issues ... What I am finding is that these questions really do need REST in their title, because everything you can do with REST you can do by "normal" means as well. So most of the questions are like your example "How do I create users"/"How do I create users with REST". I don't think removing REST from the title of these is actually helpful, so maybe that indicates that [rest] shouldn't be a tag since these issues can be found by other means?

    Well, I agree with having a rest tag, and then remove the tag from the title.

  • Yes, we don't need a tag in the title. The tag itself makes clear the context of a question. Adding the tags in the title isn't helpful at all. Imagine a question title like 8 Views Nodes Entities How do I achieve this? and imagine a site where all the question titles are like that.
