Website Page Tags:

Website page tags allow you to tag blog pages within the site with specific issues (e.g., climate change, transport, renewables etc.). Please note that website page tags are separate from the broadcaster, campaign and issue tags applied by the state office. Website page tags can be anything you like and are for internal use on this website. These allow content that covers the same topics to be grouped together and fed to the end user.
