When I type and click a synonym when trying to add a favorite tag, I get the message

"tagname does not exist on this site."

I received this message when trying to add vscode on Stack Overflow and block-designs on Mathematics.

The behavior I'd expect would be:

  • The synonym is added and the master tag is searched or
  • The master tag is added

Especially on Mathematics, the tag synonyms are not obvious and it is reasonable that I'd know a synonym but not the master tag. It isn't hard to find it out but I was on mobile at the time.

This post seems to indicate that adding synonyms used to be possible if not fully supported.
