How do I tag?
Before you can tag a post, you have to create it, and ‘save’ it at least once. When you edit your post, look on the right column for cafebabel tags. There are several kinds of tags, related to geography, directories and subjects. All of them are identified by colorful symbols. If you don’t find a tag that corresponds to your article you can create it yourself. The symbol will be a red mark.
In order to bring up a post on our special site dedicated to the EU parliamentary elections www.EUdebate2009.eu, please use one of the twelve EUdebate tags. Your article will pop-up automatically on the EUD main page as well as on cafebabel.com.
Let’s get horizontal - make tagging your sport!
