See comments inline.

UI looks good.  A couple of comments/questions:

1) I am assuming the tags will show up on all listings, not just the featured listings.   Solutions on the most popular tab or on search would alos have tags.  Correct?


2) Should we limit the number of tags that we show?   Nathan, I am assuming we don't limit the number of tags in the web ui.   However, I think we should consider limiting the number of tags we display in MPC.   I suggest we only send to MPC 5 tags for display.   Does this make sense to everyone?

While I think it is a good thing to limit the amount of tags, I think this should be handled on the client side as every other marketplace would be able to provide hundreds of tags. Limiting has the drawback to hide (maybe interesting) tags. This could be something we want to do on the server-side to sort tags according to the relevance (eg. the more a tag is used, the higher it's priority).

3) What happens when the use select a tag?  I am assuming the MPC will be a search on the tag.  Correct?

Right. When clicking on the tag, the regular search will be triggered. Same effect as typing the tag into the Find box and hit Search.

I'm currently working on having tags supported in the UI of MPC. Attached you'll find the UI with the current patch (see 336149: MPC should support tags

It would be great to get your input on the current UI and if/how we could improve it.
In my eyes, having the tags besides the plugin title is just too distractive, that's why I put them at the bottom of each item.
