Themes of the Day for July 2020 - find all the tags here!

Here are the Homepage Themes of the Day for July. Thanks for all your suggestions – hopefully we’ve included something for everyone!

If you’re not show how it all works, here’s an article that should explain what you need to do

PS. For the Wood and Glass theme, a listing just needs to have both ‘wood’ and ‘glass’ tags on it - and obviously needs to be something that combines both wood and glass :slightly_smiling_face:

admin…what have you done to me !!!
I have over 150 paintings and 90% of them are watercolours… but to me when people search they would search for watercolourS…so that is what all of them are tagged with…
I have just over 24 hours to go through them all and re tag them with WATERCOLOUR
(without the S)…aaargh…

@teabreaks Although I would write “painted with watercolours/acrylics/oils” I think when searching for paintings I would put “watercolour/acrylic/oil” without the s. It’s probably good to have some of both in your tags though, as there’s bound to be people who search both ways and I don’t think the Folksy search is advanced enough to combine plurals and singulars into one set of results.

I think it would also work if you had “watercolour” as a materials tag, but I just checked and yours mostly seem to just say paint, so that doesn’t help save any time :frowning:

Thanks Kim…I am never quite sure what to use for tags…all the watercolour ones are now changes…phew…now to work on “one of a kind!”…lol

Yes, I’m sure there must be some really good tags I’m missing, but I just get certain phrases stuck in my head and can’t think of any others, so use them for everything. I still have to keep reminding myself to add plurals in the tags too.

I often forget to add plurals :woozy_face: I’ve started to write down the complete list of themes for the month then go to my shop and look what I have listed that fits any of them then check they have the correct tags. The written list is also useful when adding new stuff and sometimes as inspiration when making.
