Marks and Tags

The Notebook allows you to both mark and tag pages. Tagging is as you would expect for any Wikidot page, but marking is a unique feature built into the notebook. This page will cover both.


Marking a page means to place a special emphasis on it. This mark can be seen at the top of the side bar for the page that was marked, and it is furthermore shown on the parent page. You might, for instance, notice that both the User Guide and Using the Notebook buttons are blue on the root notebook page. Both of those pages are marked as special info pages.

In order to mark a page, open up the Admin Panel and go to where it says Mark Page. There, you will see five colors and an unmark option. Each color represents a different kind of mark. For example, by default the blue mark denotes an important info page, whereas the red mark indicates danger. The danger mark could hence be used to underscore something urgent.

Note that you can only have up to one mark on the page at a time! Use tags (below) for multi-facet organization.

The names on the marks can actually be customized. This is discussed on the Custom Mark Names page.


Tagging is used as a means to categorize a page. A tag is simply a keyword that describes the content of the page. For example, good tags for this page may be manual or marking. Unlike for marking, a page may have multiple tags at a time, each tag somehow describing the content on the page.

In order to add or remove tags from a page, click on the tags button below or use the tags button provided in the Admin Panel.

When editing tags, be sure not to remove any tags you may see beginning with mark-. These are used to manage the marking system discussed above!

Your tags can be managed at the Tag Management page.
