    Thank you for posting this tutorial on categories and tags! Taking your suggestion, at dinner I’m going to brainstorm with my family and get their input for the blog plan.

    For others having problem with the stream, click the pause button to let it fully download before clicking play again. It takes a lonnnnnnnng while for some reason.

    Hi, I thought it was a great format and great introduction to tags and categories. I also had difficulty with the stream and found it painful. I did pause once or twice and now that I think of it, that may have helped.
    I now need to go to Wikepedia to understand these terms on a more basic level.

    Hi Lorelle

    As usual I beg to defer. I’ve no tags, only categories and subcategories.
    I’m being found imho.

    Recently I was able to move the rather lengthy sidebar with all these categories and subcategories into an archive page.

    My main point is I want not only to connect designers and their designs. For me this is an index or maybe more to the point a database with multiple points of entry.When splitting types of chairs as categories and designers as tags I’m afraid not being able anymore to connect the two in the proper way.

    my 2 cents
