This patch adds folksonomy support to Drupal (named internally as "Free
tagging"). In a nutshell, the core difference is the input method:
unlike normal taxonomies which are administratively controlled, a "free
tagging" vocabulary allows tag creation when the node is submitted. It
does this through an text input box, as opposed to a dropdown or
selectbox. This patch:
Removes the useless "Preview form" of a vocabulary.
Alters the vocabulary table to include a new "tags" column.
Adds a new "Free tagging" preference on vocabulary creation/editing.
Modifies the vocabulary overview to support pagers for free tagging
The new code integrates tightly with the existing taxonomy code. The
only additional processing occurs on node save and edit, where we parse
through the tags associated with a node. All other display (and thus,
code) remains the same. The following screenshots illustrate the
changes, integration, and workflow:
Create/edit vocabulary screen.

These patches were made during the exploration and customization of
Drupal by http://www.NHPR.org. In loving support of open source
software, http://www.NHPR.org will continue to contribute patches they
feel the community will benefit from. Questions about this patch should
