Set tags button - first look

Quickie: First impressions of the new set tags buttons

The latest feature to arrive at Wikidot is the set tags button, which allows you to add or remove a tag or tags with a simple button action. The first impressions are good, especially given it hasn't even been officially launched yet. I'm excited to see what everyone comes up with, and what new functionality can be developed off the back of what seems a rather simple feature. To get you all started, here's my first take at setting the button to work - creating a personalised favourites list.

[!-- In a Live template --]
[[module ListUsers users="."]]
[[iftags -_favourite%%number%%]]
[[button set-tags +_favourite%%number%% text="add to my favourites"]]

[[iftags +_favourite%%number%%]]
This app is in your favourites list. [[button set-tags -_favourite%%number%% text="Remove from favourites."]]

[!-- In user profile page --]
+++ My favourites list
[[module ListPages tags="_favourite%%name%%" separate="no"]]
* %%title_linked%%

I'm interested to know what you other wikidot gurus have in mind for the new button. Consider this a brainstorming session… go!
