You can find more information on how to use the tag selector in the :ref:`"Tags" section <tag_add>`.
#. |new in Mahara 18.10| **Create via tags**: :index:`You <single: New in Mahara 18.10; Populate a page with tagged content>` can select one or more tags to populate the page with all artefacts and blocks that have been tagged with them. If you select more than one tag, you only see content that matches all selected tags, i.e. it must match tag one and tag two.
.. note::
The page is only populated with already existing tagged content. If you tag new artefacts, they will not be added automatically. You will have to add them manually or populate the page again. Only new artefacts will be added.
Once you have added artefacts automatically, you can re-arrange and also remove them as needed. Since there are several possibilities of adding artefacts and blocks to a page, the following content mappings are made when multiple artefacts of the same type are added:
* 1 image: Image block
* 2+ images: Image gallery
* 1 PDF: PDF block
* 2+ PDFs: Files to download block
* 1 audio / video: Internal media block (as long as the format is supported)
* 2+ audio / video: Files to download block
* Generic file(s): Files to download block
* Folder(s): 1 Folder block per folder
* Journal(s): 1 Journal block per journal
* Journal entry / entries: Tagged journal entries block
* Note(s): 1 Note block per note
* Plan / tasks: The entire plan that contains the tagged content
#. **Name display format**: Choose how you want your name to appear on the page to others.
#. **Anonymise**: If the site administrator allowed :ref:`anonymous pages <anonymous_pages>`, you can choose this option here. Instead of your (display) name, "Author's name hidden" will be displayed to everyone. Administrators and staff can still see your real name.
#. **Layout**: Click the |retracted| icon to display all layout options. You can :ref:`change the layout <edit_layout>` to decide the overall distributon of your blocks on the page.
