A Proposal for a Tikiwiki tagging system, using the "FreeTag" script
Gordon Luk’s "Freetag" is an Open Source Tagging / Folksonomy module for PHP/MySQL applications, released under both BSD and GNU LGPL license.
Freetag is an easy tagging and folksonomy-enabled plugin for use with MySQL-PHP applications. It allows you to create tags on existing database schemas, and access and manage your tags through a robust API.
Freetag is designed for applications running on the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack. Theoretically, as long as you’re using MySQL and PHP, it should work.
Freetag should fit in well with most database schemas that have an integer as a primary key, but you should know the following limitations before you begin:
- Freetag expects to reference unique integer keys for both objects to tag, and users who tag them.
- Freetag expects to reference integers for the two above as well.
