Discussion Boards: Add system & public discussion tags

In this article

When adding new discussions, users have the option to assign one or more tags to it. Tags are a helpful tool for organizing discussions by topic. When users are viewing a discussion board, they can click on a tag to filter the discussions to only the posts that are using that tag. 

Only system admins can add, edit, and delete available tags.
