Adding custom info to Post tags (5 posts)

    I have a wordpress site I've set up and it uses tags as it's " products " list.
    Ie: Each product is has been already been given it's own wordpress tag.
    so the tag cloud basically returns a list of products and you can click it and see all posts about that product.

    basically what I'd like to do is have more than just tag name and descriptions available, I'd just like to add a few fields to the info for post tags,

    I've looked into taxonomy and I understand I can build this custom, but since the site is existing I'd like to just add the functionality of adding a custom input to the tag info

    Any help would be appreciated

    In every post you edit you can add some Custom Fields, maybe that is what you want to use...

    Yeah, I know that, what I wanted to do actually was add custom info to the post tags subpanel

    for example , right now I have name and description, I'd like to add new items to that form, so I can pull that info

    Right now I have it up so

    Tag name = product name
    Tag Description = Product description

    I'd like to add

    Tag publisher = Product publisher

    and so on, without having to redo a custom taxonomy because I've already set it up to use tags as a product list and it's fully populated with " products "

    else you should integrate some codes in the theme files such tag.php with a database connection were the right taxonomy is located for the tag
