I have downloaded a lcoal copy of Share, and amy trying to add Tags.
When I do I get the 'Failure - could not create new item' message.
Any ideas what to check?
I would check catalina.out in tomcat/logs.
I would also make sure that search is functioning properly because tags depends on search.
I would also verify that the user running Alfresco has write access to the alf_data directory.
If these clues don't help then respond with your specific Alfresco version, the platform you are running on, the steps you took to install, and exactly what you are trying to do.
