In the listing for the channels, you can select multiple channels at once just as you might in your desktop: CTRL+Click to select additional items, and SHIFT+Click to select a series of items from an already selected one up to and including the newly clicked. (Meaning, click/select a channel in the list, then scroll to where you want the selection to end and SHIFT+Click the last item, and all items in between will be selected.) To select all of you channels, change the listing to show all of your channels (by selecting "All" from the lower-right of the WebUI). Then, Click/select the first item; next scroll to the bottom of the list; finally, SHIFT+Click the last item, and all channels will be selected.

Next, click on the "Edit" button in the toolbar for the Channel listing, and assign a Tag in edit window, making certain to check the box to the left of the Tags drop down to apply your changes to that field.

However be warned, any changes made by bulk-editing channels such as this, especially with tags, will overwrite any existing tags. So, if some of your channels were already tagged with "Tag1", "Tag2" and "Tag3", or any combination thereof, and you wanted all of your channels to be tagged "Tag4" and you did a bulk-edit such as above to tag them all as "Tag4", you would find your channels would only be tagged with "Tag4", and all of your previous tags had been overwritten.

This is a known limitation of the WebUI and bulk-editing channels, but at the moment that is the way it works. If you wish to have multiple tags for your channels, unfortunately they need to be tagged individually.

If you're running 4.0. You won't see the option(s).

You need to upgrade to 4.1.
