Cohost recently added a "pinned tags" feature which allows you to give other people easy access to tags you use frequently via your profile page.
Unfortunately, this has a strange restriction, as quoted: "You can pin any of your top 15 most used tags to showcase on your page!"
This is an immensely annoying and seemingly arbitrary restriction that makes this feature utterly useless for me. I want to use this new feature to let people browse my artwork and other creations more easily, but I cannot do that because I post personal text posts much more frequently than my own artwork. I want to pin infrequent tags because of how infrequently I post them, and I honestly think many people other than myself have (or will have) a similar problem.
I firmly believe this should be updated to allow *any* tag that you've used at least once before.
i cant use pinned tags at all bc of this restriction yeah. the tags i want to pin are ones i dont use as often
Quick list of other pain points caused by this restriction:
Pinned tags should have no restrictions. (maybe still with a limit on how many, since a tag list of like 100 tags would be pretty overwhelming)
For now, some things:
- tags which got pinned while being in the "top 15" and then having posts removed which makes them fall out of the "top 15" stay pinned. (tested)
- As long as there are these restrictions, you can alternatively make a sticky post manually linking tags which you want to link, instead of putting them into the sidebar. (

Okay, that's the part I didn't test.... that sucks then.
+1 to this because i just lost one of my pinned tags due to this inane restriction. i use pinned tags to direct people to my art i want people to see, not what cohost thinks i should show people.
100% agree this restriction should be removed. folks on here sometimes have a new creative project they want to make into a tag, or just want to start posting art stuff of theirs on a page, and find that they can't pin the tag until they post an arbitrary number of posts with that tag on them so the interface will let them add it.
I don't honestly see why this restriction exists, when you can start typing in a tag name on a post and immediately see any tag that anyone else has previously used. seems like a leftover from an earlier version of the site, somehow.
i agree that this restriction should be removed as well. a tag of mine fell out of my top 15 and when i went to edit my pinned tags it just disappears! i find it strange because i also use my pinned tags to showcase infrequent posts that i dont want to lose. additionally with the lack of search tools for one's profile, the pinned tags system makes it much easier to navigate and find old posts. i really hope the devs listen and remove this unnecessary restriction
Nthing that I'd like to be able to pin any tags, with a limit on # so it doesn't cause issues if someone tries to pin every tag or something.
