What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

Currently, is synonymized into . However, there are currently several other positioning tags in existence that seem to indicate that CSS positioning is a wide enough issue that it does deserve its own, separate tag.

The position property being a single property, all of these should be synonymized into a single CSS positioning tag.

There are also these other tags that probably shouldn't be synonymized but need to be taken care of:

  • × 1478
    Honestly, I think this one should be burninated. It is extremely vague and used as a meta-tag in almost anything not related to CSS.

  • × 1076 This one is more closely related to CSS via its tag wiki, but still mentions its other users and I fear it has a lot of meta-taggings as well. If this one does get combined, it should probably be destroyed first, and then synonymized, to get rid of any non-relevant questions that might be tagged there.

  • × 15
    Merge and delete the tag.

  • × 8
    I believe it's referring to the bottom property in CSS. If that's true, merge and delete the tag.


Also, you should get rid of that synonym. I don't know why a misspelled synonym was ever added in the first place...

+1 since CSS positioning is all voodoo to me.. It's sort of harder and more extensivly used/abused than the rest of the CSS properties.. –  Manishearth May 3 '12 at 18:11

This is, for the most part, completed. What's been done:

has been created to handle all questions relating to the position property, as well as its cousins top, right, bottom, and left. It has the following synonyms attached to it:


and have been destroyed.


I'm currently in the process of retagging the non-CSS questions out of the tag so those questions can be merged into the new tag.

Then, I will figure out what on Earth to do with the tag.
