Tagging Plugins for WordPress 2.3

September 19th, 2007
WordPress Plugins

The final release of WordPress 2.3 with its native tagging functions is right around the corner, and there are already a few plugins floating around that will enhance tagging in WordPress 2.3. Here are two I’ve run across today:

  1. Advanced Tag Entry lets you choose tags from a drop-down list to your posts, remove tags you’ve already added to your posts, create new tags, edit tags, and delete unused tags from the database.
  2. Click Tags adds a clickable list of existing tags above the native tag field on the Write screen. This is a great plugin if you have only a handful of tags you use.

    [adds a thinger for snagging automagic tag suggestions via the Yahoo! API]

  3. Travis says:

    probably obvious if i poked around a bit more, but is there way to import tags from previous plugins into 2.3?.. my 2 years worth of utw/simple tagging is the only reason i’m hesitant to upgrade.

    Travis, there will be tag importers included for most of the most commonly used tagging plugins.

    Sorry by my english, but… Where i can download the Russian translation for this plug-in?

    Call me simplistic, but why not change the word “category” to the word “tag” and be done with it? What’s the difference? What was the point in adding another folksonomy engine?

  7. Jim Stitzel (27 comments.) says:

    Honestly, I think it boils down to usage – categories are macro-level identification, and tags are micro-level. I like the way Lorelle put it awhile back – categories are like your site’s Table of Contents, and Tags are the Index.

    Slightly off topic, but will the new WP version have built-in tag clouds, or will that require extra theme coding?

    WordPress Codex – Template Tags


    Those are the only two new tagging functions that are built-in to 2.3. From there, it’ll be up to users to determine what tagging features are popular enough to be made native in future versions of WordPress.

    HeadSpace also supports the new 2.3 tags and has a neat auto-suggestion feature, as well as a mass-editing mode for tags.
