Tags are short keywords such as
sports applied to content items. Tags making finding and reusing content easier.
Tags are also an important enabler feature. Here are some ideas:
Periodic campaigns: Tag your content items according to their sales cycle (

grilling) or trendiness (
nordic-noir). Display content by tag on your site, for example in a carousel that cycles through identically tagged items. Change the tags as you move from one period to another. This is a quick way to react to changes in inventory. It's easy to change an entire set of promoted content by tagging only.
The Content Tags module provides tagging functionality in Magnolia, including the Tags app for deleting and renaming tags as well as managing tag dependencies across content items, and a

For example, content items can be rendered based on tags by creating a template. The
tour-tag page in the demo has a special component called "Tour list by content tag" that renders tours based on their tags.
