Tags & Chips

Bootstrap Tags & Chips

Bootstrap tags and chips categorize content with the use of text and icons. Tags and chips make it easier to browse throughout articles, comments or pages.

Their main goal is to provide your visitors with an intuitive way of getting what they want. Just consider, how convenient it is to find all the articles related to web development just by using a web development tag.


Basic example

Chips can be used to represent small blocks of information. They are most commonly used either for contacts or for tags.

Contact Person John Doe
Tag 220


        <div class="chip">
          <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Avatars/avatar-6.jpg" alt="Contact Person"> John Doe
        </div>
    
        <div class="chip">
          Tag 220
          <i class="close fas fa-times"></i>
        </div>

      

Contacts

To create a contact chip just add an img inside.

Contact Person John Doe


        <div class="chip">
          <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Avatars/avatar-6.jpg" alt="Contact Person"> John Doe
        </div>

      

Tags

To create a tag chip just add a close icon inside with the classclose.

Tag 220

    
        <div class="chip">
          Tag 220
          <i class="close fas fa-times"></i>
        </div>
