Tag and source editing split. I expect some userscript breakages, but there’s unfortunately little I can do there.
From here, I would like to look at little tweaks to make that part of the UI better. If anyone has suggestions on the CSS/HTML, I’m quite open.
One thing I do want to address is there being too many buttons in that area, as was mentioned before. I’m not really sure how to spread things out even more.

No thanks. I don’t really see any (not changed recently) parts of the UI that necessitate being made "better".
If anyone has suggestions on the CSS/HTML, I’m quite open.

I somehow doubt you’ll be re-merging the tag and source buttons, so I won’t bother asking for that, but could you at the very least put them both under/by the source, like it was? I really don’t see why it needed to be moved above the tags.
Speaking of these buttons, could you please make them more similar to what the old button used to be like?

Also, could you please remove the bold effect on the source itself? The only thing that the bold looks fitting on is the tags, and I’d say that those are an exception, if anything, to the rest of that part of the page layout. A bold’d source URL doesn’t look right.

On another note, I’d love to see that "refresh" button for comments made so that it doesn’t stick out like it does currently.

They’re fine. Please stop moving things around.

A CSS class got a little lost in the shuffle due to being way outside of our modern naming conventions, I’ve replaced it with a simpler new selector approach (and made it so sources actually wrap in all cases when they’re too long).

Edit source will now set focus on the source field.

UI updates are mostly on hold while we deal with backend stuff, but there’s a scraper rewrite in the reworks and once it’s done I’ll be adding scraping for a few different sites (FA and IB at the least, Eka’s Portal and Pixiv likely later).

FA might be trouble since they have no API. InkBunny does have an API.
Eka’s I’m not sure on. Will check into it more once they’ve got their new server working so I can poke around their forums.

Full search syntax including !, ||, && and no more automatic wildcards? Nice!

Maybe add a note that the full syntax indeed can and has to be used, though, before people start asking about why they only get a single result back. *looks at bug report thread* Too late…

And a list of available tag categories would be useful. So far we only know origin from the example query.

I feel this is a decrease in functionality. If you’re using that page to search for tags that you may not know the full name of, you’re only going to get an exact match. For example, if you search for "oc:marina", it will not return a result for "oc:marina (efnw)".

I don’t feel it’s reasonable to expect that most users will know to put a wildcard in their queries, and that will make tags harder to find.

I must agree. This feels needlessly complicated. A decision made from more advanced users who have lost sight of the skills, patience and knowledge retention of the average user.


@LightningBolt
They’re talking about removing the recent changes from the tags page, not the search bar.

It is, you just need to do a little reading on the search syntax and learning. It provides much greater results now, provided you add the right syntaxes. It is exactly like image searching now, just for tags.

This functionality is greatly improved.

I disagree. This is an improvement for staff and powerusers who spend multiple hours a week manipulating tags, but for everyone else, this is just added complexity that no one wants to read about. A lot of the categories are redundant or useless anyway. For example, you could already find aliases and implications just by searching the tag. Being able to search by tag category is a useful addition, except there’s no list of what the categories are (and if you look at the list on the staff-only "edit tag" page, those are English-ized names that do not reflect the actual category names in the code). Namespace already existed, since you could’ve just searched for "artist:" and get the same results that "namespace:artist" will give you today. Etc.

It is not really fair to bring up something and then say it is impossible. Truthfully I would have just kept guessing based on what made sense or just read byte’s post above and referred to it.
