    Why do "skills and expertise" tags have underscores?

    tmaurer

      We are upgrading to Jive 7 this weekend, so I'm doing my final run throughs and making sure I understand how things work. This one has me perplexed.

       

      If I enter a skill that is more than one word, the Jive system "translates" it into two words connected with underscores. However, Curtis Gross explained that in Jive 7, underscores weren't used by the system for joining multi-word tags. So I'm having a hard time unerstanding. Is this an engineering disconnect? And if so, has it been logged as a bug to be fixed? Also, will that have an impact on findability? I know in the past, if multi-word keywrods were joined with underscores, searchers needed to include the underscore in order for the system to find the match. Is that still the case?

       

      Thanks for your feedback!

          Interesting.. there shouldn't be any underscores being created.  Are you saying that the suggested tags are showing underscores?  Or when you 'create new' and it includes 2 words, the system is adding an underscore?

          Example: 

          I create a new tag for userX

          • This is my magic tag

          Save

          View userX's profile with tag and see:

          • This_is_my_magic_tag

              Hi Curtis,

               

              What I was seeing when I posted this was that adding two word tags with a space then showed up with underscores. But now when I'm working on it, it is working as expected (not including underscores). So I'll retract my earlier question. I don't know what I was doing differently that made me believe it wasn't working correctly.

               

              Thanks for the response.
