Awesome Idea - No Way to Exploit It...That I know of

Has anyone ever thought about creating a search component using tags in a component journal as the query. The idea is just as simple as that. With every entry, the writer adds a tag(s) to the entry for future search references.

Say I write an entry about my thoughts on the government, and put government as a tag for the entry. Later on, I wanted to quickly find that entry and/or like entries about the government, bam! all of the entries with that tag come up in chronological order. If the tag didn't exist for that journal then use some default error component/page.

this would make navigating through a community or an archive a lot easier, yes?

I lack the necessary skill to do this, but see how fast I learn S2 to get this up and running. thoughts?

How do I fix it? I copied and pasted exactly as it said :(

hello minions...

...where's that post talking about how to tweak the customizing the entries tutorial so the double-thick line is not doubly-thick anymore?

Additional Components (Music & Television)

Please do forgive my stupidity but I have just figured out how to add one additional component to my journal and it made me immensely happy. However, I have now seen this journal and would love to add the "hearing" and "watching" components sans scrollbar to my journal as well. There are many tutorials listed and I am in need of a rather simplistic one that would help me figure out how to add a second additional component (and remind me about any boxes that need to be checked or unchecked in the wizard as appropriate) and where one goes about finding those nifty li'l pictures.

If someone would be kind enough to help me I would be ever so grateful. Merci beaucoup!
