Apr 26, 2022 3:31pm

 

In this step-by-step guide, we'll walk you through adding additional tags to tag groups of Dropdown filters for sorting the content in LaunchPAD Marketplace.

 

When you've got the LaunchPAD Marketplace theme installed, you will be able to add new tags to already created tag groups of dropdown filters. It will help you update and filter your content in the product.

 

Adding new tags is easy and won't take much time. Though before starting, you have to be sure that the following important steps are already done:

 

  1. You organized and prepared the content for tagging, and defined groups of tags and tags. Learn more.

  2. You've got registered all the tag groups and tags, and set up dropdown filters by Motivation Team.

  3. You've created and populated product posts on which you would like to add new tags.

  4. You've decided in which tag group (or groups) that is already linked to the dropdown filter you will be adding new tags.

 

If all above are ready, let's get started!

 

How to add a new tag to a tag group

 

The first thing you'll need to do before the adding is to open 2 tabs on your browser:

 

  • The Product editor for your Kajabi website - where you will be adding tags.

  • The spreadsheet or another document with tag groups and tags.

 

  

2. Then go to Kajabi editor and get to the LaunchPAD Marketplace.

For that:

  • Navigate to Products

  • Select Product with LaunchPAD Marketplace theme

  • Press Customize

  • And press Customize again

 

 

3. The LaunchPAD Marketplace editor will open. This is the place where you'll be adding new tags.

  • Open the Post page by clicking Post

 

 

  • On the right side of the screen, you'll see the columns with tag groups and tags that are already registered.

 

 

Note:

If there won't be any columns:
- navigate to the sidebar and click on Marketplace Dashboard at the bottom;
- then tick Display Dashboard.

Now you see the columns with tag groups and tags. It will help you to keep an eye on all the changes you'll make.

 

 

 

4. After that, you can start adding new tags.

For that:

  • Go to Filter Tags on the top of the sidebar.

 

 

  • Make sure Enable Filter tags function is turned on.

  • Navigate to the list of already registered tag groups.

 

 

  • Click on the tag group which is linked to the dropdown filter you would like to add a new tag.

  • The Tag Group editor will open. Here you will be adding new tags.

  • Navigate to the Tags section on the editor and press on it.

 

 

  • You'll see the list of tags that are already set up.

  • Scroll to the next one after the last tag that was already added. There will be an empty field to add a new tag. (In the case of the example below we would need to add the Tag 6).

 

 

  • In the Tag empty field type the name of the new tag or copy it from the spreadsheet you've opened in the second tab.

 

NB! Be sure that you're copying the right name of the tag from the right tag group.

 

 

  • Paste the tag name to the empty field.

  • Click Save button.

  • Wait until the page will refresh and the name of the new tag will appear in the tag group column on the right side of the screen. 

 

 

At the same time, the new tag will automatically be added to the dropdown filter on the Marketplace sidebar.

  • You can preview by clicking on the Product page and then on the little square icon "Preview" at the top.

 

 

  • As you can see on a preview, the new filter parameter "Promotion" is already added to the "Marketing" dropdown filter on the Marketplace sidebar and waiting to be linked to the product posts.

 

 

This way you can add up to 25 tags to the group. To add the new tag to another group of tags repeat all the steps from Point 4 of this guide.

 

Hope this was useful!

Now, it's time to tag the posts.
