I've noticed that among the available tags there are joomla-component / component and joomla-module / module, but only plugin. Wouldn't it make sense to add joomla-plugin as well? Maybe not very important, but it would make sense to follow the same scheme.

Also, as this is a Joomla forum, shouldn't joomla-component and component etc. simply be tag synonyms?

Indeed I agree.

I see no point in using and . This is a Joomla specific StackExchange site, therefore I don't think people need to be reminded that the component, module or plugin are part of Joomla. Even synonyms I don't think would be necessary.

The likes of or should only really be used on non-specific Exchange sites, such as StackOverflow or Pro Webmasters

  • Yes, removing the joomla- prefix makes sense on Joomla StackExchange. How does the process of changing/removing tags work?

    There is a soft delete feature that removes any tags at midnight (UTC) with no questions. So what could be done is, edit all questions that use the joomla-component and change them to component. I'm not sure if there are any other ways to deal with this to be honest

  • That sounds like a possible solution, as there are still quite few questions with these tags. I also noticed that both modules and module exists, are there any reasons to have both?

    Tags are simply created when a user types a custom one in. I think a mass prune session might be an idea. Something I don't mind doing with a bit of help

    @johanpw - Approved all your edits too. I'm also changing modules to module on questions that contain it
