config.item_edit.tags_on_create - Initialization - Author API

Author API Initialization


Specifies Tags which are added to new Items when they are saved.

You would want to use this to always add particular Tags for your Item bank when new Items are created, for example.

Note Any Tags defined in global.hide_tags will also be added to new Items when they are saved. However, these hidden Tags will not be shown in the authoring interface.
