What is a 'tagged' letterbox?

Help Home > Letterboxes > Searching

A tagged letterbox is one that you want to identify with a certain characteristic later. When you run a letterbox search or view a letterbox, a small, colored star shows up next to the box name of all boxes you've thus identified, a nice reminder for whatever it is you wanted to be reminded of. For example, you might tag a list of boxes that you think look particularly interesting so in later letterbox searches, you won't accidentally overlook them. Or another tag could mark mystery boxes that you've solved.

Using the Advanced Search page, found under the Letterboxes menubar option, you can even perform searches that will return only letterboxes you've tagged (or haven't tagged) with a specific color.

Premium members have up to eight different tags (each with a different color) that they can use. Without a premium membership, you'll only be able to make use of three of them. You can tag an individual box from the box details page, tag multiple boxes from a search directly from the search results page, to set the tags while recording a find on a letterbox.

You can set the text for each tag option on your Letterboxing Preferences.

As for why you may want to tag letterboxes, that's up to you. Many people use it for different reasons, but here are some common ones:
