When I drag a tag on the questions page from the tag list to the input field Favorite Tags it breaks:

enter image description here

The tag is changed to httpux.stackexchange.comquestionstaggedusability.

  • as a note the add boxes have autocomplete so it's pretty easy to add tags

It's not designed to, I'm afraid. See this post on Meta.StackOverflow and the associated response:

There is no drag-and-drop functionality with the tags right now.

What you did, and can do on most browsers, is just grab the URL of the thing and it will perform a paste right into whatever input you're going for.

You can also do what you did with avatars or links. But it doesn't mean it's drag-and-drop.

  • Oh, okay. My fault then. It really looks draggable. Shouldn’t be so hard to catch those cases per JavaScript.

  • Well as it's been asked on MSO you're clearly not the only person who's noticed it, so don't worry about that. While possibly a nice idea the fact that the Tags entry field is fixed in the top-right means that the only tags you could drag into it would be ones that appear in the top-half of the page. If DnD were to be implemented then the tag search field would have to float with the page. That's probably a bit OTT to be beneficial I'd guess.

  • You can drag links from the bottom of a page by holding the link with the mouse and moving up with the key. :D
