Family Tag

The family tag can be used for multiple types within the Geek websites. For the sake of completeness the known uses of the family tag are documented here.

For BGG geek programmers, the family tag is probably very useful. It would help the programmers write domain independent code so that it would work on BGG, RPG, and VGG. So in the forum editor, many of the links created using the "Insert Geek Link" dropdown actually used the generic family tag instead of the particular named tag.

It would seem that the family tag isn't particularly useful for Geek users since it would be easier to remember the named tag, rather than which types use family, which use thing, and which use neither.

There are two forms of the family tag set:

  • [family=####] retrieves Geek name as the text for the hyperlink within the BGG wiki.
  • [family=#### Alternate Hypertext] where "Alternate HyperText" is the user supplied text for the hyperlink within the BGG wiki.

If you know of another use of the family tag set please geekmail herace.
