Tags with slashes don't work RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have twice tried to create a thread with the tag
    and the post succeeds, but I get this message:
    The thread was created successfully but the tag was not created successfully.
    I assume it is the slash that is doing it.

  • Sounds about right. Any reason that this couldn't be 2 seperate tags (that is, use a space rather than /). As far as I know, the tagging system does not support most punctuation.

  • C++/CLI is a programming language.  One of the 4 supported by Visual Studio.  C++ CLI is two tags, they each mean something completely different.  Being able to tag threads with the proper name of your programming language on a programming forum is kinda important.  Mr. O'Brian probably agrees.

  • Sorry, I haven't done any C++ in 12-13 years. I just looked it up and I see what you mean...

  • Microsoft needs to at least reply to these and acknowledge that they are bugs and say they will fix it, or not.  I go out of my way to report bugs when I find them, and it is very thankless work since I usually get no reply.  At least say "yeah, sorry, thanks for the report."  Then I can walk around feeling like I made the world .00000000001% better, rather than that I just wasted my time.
