[Digikam-users] Hierarchical tags

I think there is still something wrong.  I can assign the child in my case say "White Ibis" and if in the left panel I click on "Animals" in "My Tags" I'll get not only the White Ibis but all the insects, spiders and birds that I've tagged as well.  Notice that in this case we're three levels deep.  Animals/birds/White Ibis and all I have to do is assign white Ibis.

My "toggle auto" is set to none.  Of course I've never been able to get Digikam to work in windows and I seem to recall that I had a similar problem with an earlier version of Digikam.  I use Digikam 1.2.0 on Kubuntu.  If that work around works then it's good enough but I though you'd want to have it auto tag the parents  and then select the species like Cardinal, Chickadee at the bottom of the hierarchy.

good luck.
