Tag question

So let's say I wanted to link to my index of tags ... but only the fic tags. (For you know, when memories are down. Again.) I don't want "memes" or "polls" tags or whatever. Is there a way to do that? I went to "Manage Tags" and there doesn't seem to be a way to edit the index *or* edit existing tags to change the security from public to private. So if I want an index listing just fic-related tags, would I have to delete all the other ones? You folks who just have fic tags in there, is that because you never *created* any other tags?

*sighs, kicks LJ*

So I can have this: http://halfdutch.livejournal.com/tag/lost_fic

Or this: http://halfdutch.livejournal.com/tag/jack/sawyer

But not an index, apparently.

*is sheepish* I cannot help you with your tags. But hi. :)

Awww, hi! How are you? Where've you been? And welcome back!

Thank you! I've been not around because I suck. I am, however, around somewhere else quite often. I shall e-mail you.

The only suggestion I have is for you to create a tag just called "fic" and add it to all of your stories and use that as an index. It won't give you a listing of pairings etc like, for example, I have but it would provide a place for people to scroll thru everything you've written.
Or you could do what I've seen others do *thinks* eponine119 for example - have a list of your various fic related tags in one of the box thingys at the side of your layout.
And, in answer to your other question, I only ever create tags for fic, either my own or for recs hence my tag index is fic only.

Yes, yours is the one I was thinking of! It's so clean and uncluttered! *sighs in envy* Memories are fine but they're down so often!

So I put my "lost_fic" tag in my table o' links (in the right column here -->). I guess that'll have to do! Thanks! And I seem to have plenty of links going on already (mostly for my own use) so I don't think I'm going to add all the pairings tags too.

The whole "edit" tags thing is a bit misleading as once you get there, you can't EDIT them, you can only add or delete! *is grumpy*

I wish that when you clicked the tag, you got a list of posts like the Memories feature gives you, rather than the posts themselves. Is that what you're saying? But I've kind of gotten used to it, and I think tags are SO much easier to use than memories. It'd be cool if they could somehow merge the two functions, taking the best usability from both of them, but it's probably not possible.

If you wanted an index of just fic related tags, I think you'd have to hand-code them as links rather than using a layout that shows all the tags you have in use.

Yeah, tags don't go down like memories, so that's a definite plus. I'm not going to bother with hand coding, though. I could always delete the non-fic tags, I guess. Thanks!
