What is tagging on other Bible sites?
Let's look at David Cox's site. When he makes a post (equivalent to an upload on BibleSupport.com), he tags his upload one of 2 ways.
One way is "by topic" (see screenshow below of topics). I envision a hierarchy of tags (like this) on left-side of the screen in the Downloads area above or below we currently have "e-Sword Categories". (I need help with what the tags should be--one thing missing from this list is denominations).

Another way David Cox tags: He tags resources with keywords that don't appear in the list above. I do not have a complete list of his keywords (I have asked him for a list if he can produce one). Some of his keyword tags look like this:

Tagging at Bible Support
IPBoard (our software) has the basics already done. I will have to code the display of tags on the front Downloads page (easy to do). IPBoard leaves it up to the administrator on placement of these things.
Tags will appear in 3 places (or wherever we want them to).
1) I want to show a list of tags prominently on the left side of the Downloads Page near "e-Sword Categories". I'm likely to shorten the space "e-Sword Categories" uses. I intend to put all the "lesser used" categories like Study Notes, Memory Lists, etc under a "More Categories" link to free up vertical space. The placement of a tag hierarchy would look something like this:

2) Right now (already done) when a file is tagged, you can see similar files by clicking on the tag.

3) Right now (already done), when a user or moderator uploads/edits a file, they can choose which tag to apply:

Notice the "test" tags. That's why I'm making this post. What should our tag hierarchy look like? I think David's is a good start (first green graphic above). Maybe add denominations.
Feel free to post here, or message me privately about this with your ideas and suggestions, both on the content of the tags and my proposals above for showing tags on our site.
