Thing Tag

The thing tag can be used for multiple items within the Geek websites. For the sake of completeness the known uses of the thing tag are documented here. However, the tag doesn't seem to be particularly useful for Geek users. For users it would be easier to remember the named tag set.

There are two forms of the thing tag set:

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

For geek programmers, the thing 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 thing tag instead of the particular named tag.

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