#1129: Forum Topic Tags not visible/editable

 Currently, forum topic tags only appear on the forum directory. This is
 good but the tags don't appear anywhere else:

 a) The topic page doesn't display the current topic tags. It is possible
 to show tags using a template tag like this (just a proof of concept):
 function bp_the_topic_tags() {
         $tags = bb_get_topic_tags( bp_get_the_topic_id() );
         if ( !empty( $tags ) ) {
                 _e( 'Tagged as:', 'buddypress' ) . ' ';
                 $plain_tags = array();
                 foreach ( $tags as &$tag )
                         $plain_tags[] = sprintf( '<a href="%s"
 rel="tag">%s</a>', get_option( 'home' ) . '/' . BP_FORUMS_SLUG . '/' .
 'tag' . '/' . $tag->slug, $tag->name );
                 echo implode( ', ', $plain_tags ) . '.';
         } else {
                 _e('No tags.', 'buddypress');

 I'm pretty sure that bb_get_tag_link could be used because of the
 bp_forums_filter_tag filter.

 b) The edit topic page doesn't allow the topic author to edit topic tags.

 c) The group members are unable to add tags to a topic. Maybe this can be
 left out, but since in bbPress it's possible for each user to add tags, I
 guess it could be added easily.

 d) The current forum directory displays the most popular forums on topics
 matching a tag. This is confusing because if the user clicks on a tag
 link, and gets the "popular forums" list, he/she can understand that those
 forums are tagged. There could be a template tag like

 function bp_forums_is_tag() {
         $tag = bp_get_forums_tag_name();
         return !empty( $tag );

 And then we could wrap the forum list with this conditional.
