Not sure what's going in your case, but you may want to have a look at Vufind Manager <>. It's a third-party developed add-on that provides a GUI for managing the social aspects, such as user accounts, tags, comments, etc. All that info lives in a MySQL database anyway, but this is a nice interface your librarians can use.

It might help with troubleshooting this issue too.

Is there a known bug related to this?

A librarian mentioned they placed the same tag on 5 items, but a search produces just 1 result.

I looked in the database and I see, instead of 1 tag record, with 5 resource records, 5 tag records with 1 resource record each. My single result is the first tag/resource pair.

The tag text is identical case, no spaces etc.. browse tag confirms this, as well as a handcrafted sql query.

I tried to find the search code, to remove what appears to be the assumption of unique tag text so that it would cope with the multiples but am not making good headway.
