Subject: Tags now in quotes?

Noticed that when I add tags to books, the system now puts quotes around the tag.  So that ends up being a separate tag than ones I've used.  For instance I have a tag to read, but now the system when I add the tag to read, it ends up being "to read", so the books I previously tagged are under to read, but the new ones are under "to read".  Anyone know if this is permenant thing?

Fortuntely I can remove the quotes.  If this is a permenant change to tags it would make more sense for me to change to the new way of having the quotes around the tag.

I didn't notice.  But then I stopped using Tags when they came out with the book lists.

I noticed something was off about the tag feature, but haven't had time to play with it.

I had the same problem and was finding it very irritating to keep having to remove the quote marks.  Then I found that if I type the entire tag name rather than choosing it from the list that comes up after I put the first few characters, it did not put the quote marks.  Still a bit of a pain because I have to type the whole tag, but easier than removing the quote marks every time.

Since no one else mentioned having done so, I've sent in Feedback to the Team to ask about this issue -- I'll post here if/when I learn anything.

Thanks Cattriona -- sounds like something they'd want to know about :-)

The Team says: "It was an inadvertant effect of a change we made to the Search feature. It should be fixed now."

I tried it and it looks like it is, indeed, fixed.  Yay!

When I was searching for some books last night it added quotation marks to what I entered. Then it put up a thing saying "did you meant to search for xxxx" but w/o the quotation marks.

I missed it I guess as I never did see any quotes in my Tag entries.  Shucks.  Pat
