Using the official NC docker image.

The issue you are facing:

I can’t manually add tags to images.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): N

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Click an image
  2. look for anywhere to add tags …

screenshot: Imgur: The magic of the Internet

(note: I tried directly uploading the image here several times but after it’s progress gets to 100%, theres a long pause, and then a dialog saying there was an issue uploading the image.)

I have searched here and google and some old posts seem to suggest that there should be an ellipse or similar in the Info bar that I should be able to click to add tags, but as the screenshot shows, there’s nothing there.


I have also looked in the NC apps lists for a tagging app, but the best I could find was the workflows automatic tagging; I want to be able to manually enter tags.

Just tried it myself on NC 24, it’s still an issue. I was convinced that it must be possible. There is even a feature request for that:
