Tagging - what about using "double space" as a Tag is completed indicator when comma not available.


  • If you used a "double space" as a new tag indicator ...(as a comma replacement) it would be easier to tag when mobile browsing in portrait mode.


    I see the iphone 6+ has a comma on the landscape view :)

  • Press 123, there should be a comma button.

    return null;


    Browser: Firefox Nightly (64bit)

    Betriebssystem: Windows 10

  • That is what I was trying to avoid !

    Thank you for validating a discussion I was having earlier on this very site. Notably that the average consumer today takes the path of least effort and resistance.

  • And thanks i got something i can fight against

    I'm at a crossing point. On one hand, I too want to fight against the de-evolution that is taking place in society. On the other hand, I know better as doing so comes with a cost when excluding yourself from society and the opportunities that come from embracing it.


    Some of my best sites have been very successful when I stop fighting against the grain and embraced the madness.

  • You can add tags by hitting return, on iOS it's the blue "Go" button that holds the same functionality. It isn't really obvious, but way more obvious than using double space, but as good as it could get.


    Double space isn't exactly an option for us:

    • The logic behind the tagging input is used in multiple different places that follow other rules. There are cases where successive whitespaces are permitted as long as they occur in between characters. Disabling such a "double space" feature would make the input highly inconsistent.
    • It is quite error-prone in case of accidental double spaces, not to mention that you could trigger it by backspacing a word that could lead to successive whitespaces.
    • You can already use the comma and return key consistent on all devices and OS, making it far easier for users.
    • I've never seen any piece of software that triggers on double space, making it a highly unintuitive behavior.

    If that's success for you, okay. Seeing the fight working is success for me.

  • The Go works great :)

    Way better than double space


    Put the Go instructions beside the info about the comma.


    Wonder why the return button changes to a Go button on certain fields ?

  • Because this is an input field inside a form.

    Normally you could send the form with the go button, but wsc3 suppresses the submitting of the form in order to perform its own action (adding the tag).

    But your browser doesn't know this ;)

  • I'm chrome mobile on iOS.

    All right, but it doesn't change my point that we cannot influence the labels themselves. Removing the input field from the form isn't an option, so we simply have no choice.
