The tagging and rating user interface

Learn about the user interface that HCL Digital Experience Portal provides for users to work with tags and rating.

Portal tagging and rating offers the following user interface elements that users can use to work with tags and ratings:
  • The tag and rating widgets:
    • The tag widget. This is an inline widget that you can add to your portal content and that users use to tag that portal content.
    • The rating widget. This is an inline widget that you can add to your portal content and that users use to rate that portal content.
  • The tag cloud.
  • The Tag Center.
  • A feature for browsing tags.
Note: With HCL Digital Experience Portal Version 8.5, both the dialog and inline tag and rating widgets of previous portal versions are deprecated. They are replaced by a single pair of new enhanced inline widgets. They provide the functionality of both types of the old widgets. Users view them as part of the portal resource.

You can configure the widgets by using a set of parameters. You can set these parameters globally for all tag or rating widgets in your portal in the WP CP configuration service. You can also set them for individual instances of the tag and rating widgets by using JavaScript parameters. All these parameters are listed and described in the topic about the WP CP configuration service and the parameter reference topics for tagging and rating.
