Why do tags URL contain the ID of the site?
I have been browsing through the tags on different sites and found out its URL contains the ID of the site they belong to:
- In Linguistics (id 36 as a site):
- In Linguistics Meta (id 37):
- In Linguistics Resources (id 40):
So some comments:
- I see the need to group the tags IDs depending on the part of the site they belong to (Meta, main, resources, challenges or whatever else), but wouldn't the URLs be easier to determine by using subdomains? Like
- Why is
categoriesin the URL?
- Could the name of the tag be part of the URL instead of its ID for a better manual search?
- Shouldn't the URL of subtags be different from the URL of tags? I compared in Judaism the tag agriculture https://judaism.codidact.com/categories/32/tags/3486 with its subtag challah https://judaism.codidact.com/categories/32/tags/3033
All of this comments come from a user perspective that may want to browse through the URLs independently of the UI. Also, I base my understanding of tags on the post Tag updates, including tag hierarchies, there may be other documentation about the topic that I could not find.
