Add Tags to uploads? (4 posts)

    I want to upload a .doc file and add a tag to it that will show up in the tags section of the sidebar. Is this possible? I have uploaded the .doc file successfully but cannot find a way to tag it. I know tags are more used for posts, but I was hoping I could manipulate this function in some way. the site in question is thomaspenry.com/blog. currently I don't have any tags, as I didn't tag the posts hoping I could use the tags feature for uploads on articles. If I need to write some .PHP just let me know, I am not a pro, but am well versed in .PHP.

    You can't add tags to attachments such as .doc files. You can only tag posts.

    Darn. Ok, is there is any way to modify the loop code or tag code?

    To do what? WordPress simply cannot store tags against attachment files.
