Newbie here!

I go to Structure > Content types > Add content type and create a new content type.

But how can I add tags to my new content type, just like when you go to Content > Add content > Article, you get the option to enter a title, tags and body.

How can I add the capability to add tags to my new content type?

Go to /admin/structure/types and press on manage fields of your custom content type

Press on the +Add field button, and use Re-use an exiting field (the drop down on the right) to select the existing Entity Referenc: field_tags

enter image description here

Then go to manage form display, for tags change the widget to autocomplete (Tags style)

PS: I suggest you install admin toolbar if you haven't already.

    @wanna_be_superman meta tag for SEO, pathauto to automatically give aliases to your nodes, Secure Login for security. Redirect so if you change url, your old url automatically redirects to your new url path (SEO) Re-Captcha to prevent bots from registering to your site. Ummm... idk what else, it depends on what you're trying to build, really.

    Are the prior 2 comments the newest workaround to ask questions about module recommendations? Comments cannot be put on hold, right? Aug 12, 2016 at 11:22
