Adding artefacts to a page based on tags

Bug Description

When creating a new page, user could have the option of selecting an existing tag. Then all the artefacts (matching blocktypes) that contain that tag would be automaticaly added to the page in some predefined order (or randomly). The user could then rearrange them on the page or delete them off the page.

Marking as a duplicate, because images are a type of artefact. Although I suppose, implementation-wise, you'd need to do this in a few separate parts:

1. Add a tag-based selection option to the file chooser. (This would apply for both images and and other types of files)

2. Add a tag-based selection option for the other artefact choosers (i.e. blog posts, and other taggable artefacts)

ok posted this on wrong bug report: post it here now too

I like this idea especially if we can get some sort of multi tagging option going where one could pick more than one tag so that if you wanted to show holiday snaps you could pick both the easter and christmas tagged artefacts to display as one group.
