I am adding tags to one of my larger XenForo forums and it's become a very tedious process. I'd like to know if there is a way to mass add tags or batch add tags. I'd basically like to scroll down any particular forum on my site and check the boxes for which threads I'd like to tag with a certain tag. Then, I'd like a popup or something that would allow me to add one tag to a bunch of different posts of my choosing. Does this sort of feature exist with XenForo? I'm hoping it does, or else I've got a lot of thread page visits ahead of me.

I am pretty sure that feature doesn't exist in the core software. I've read a few threads in the XenForo community and the closest anyone has come to mass editing or adding of tags is via a few add-ons. One is about a year old and the other is something like five years old. I wouldn't use the latter. You can check them out here:

Tag Essentials
https://xenforo.com/community/resources/tag-essentials.6759/

Batch Update Tags
https://xenforo.com/community/resources/batch-update-tags.4460/

The Tag Essentials add-on was created by Stuart Wright, who runs AVForums, a very popular audio-visual forum. Download that and try it out. Even if it doesn't do everything you want, you may be able to persuade Stuart to modify the add-on to fit your needs. If you've got certain requirements, that means other people do too. He may be up for it.
