I just ran across a question with the tag , and saw that there are three other similar tags containing "publish": , , and . None of them have tag wikis. I am not certain of the meaning for those tags.

1 Answer 1


In Drupal, publishing is generally referred to nodes, which can be published (visible to all the users), or unpublished (visible only to users with the permission to administer content). , , and are then synonyms, and should be set as tag synonyms.

seems used to refer to pushing/controlling code using a versioning system (e.g. CVS, Git), but for that there is already .

  • In your answer you state that they should be set as synonyms. How does one go about that?

  • Users with enough score for a tag can suggest tag synonyms that other users can vote. I don't have enough score for publishing or version-control to suggest synonyms, or vote them; the same is true for you. Moderators can create a synonym, if there is the need. A synonym is not created because a single user keeps using a tag instead of another; so far, the non necessary tags have been deleted; if users keep using the wrong ones, the moderators could do something.
