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.


In Drupal, publishing is generally referred to nodes, which can be published (visible to all the users), or unpublished (visible only to users with the permission to administer content).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? – Ashlar Dec 10 '11 at 19:16
  • 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. – kiamlaluno Dec 10 '11 at 19:49
