Categories into tags (2 posts)

    Before 2.3, I used UTW to automatically make all categories listed as tags also. Now that I use 2.3, how can I make the same thing happen?

    Depends on what, exactly, you're talking about...

    Categories are always automatically listed as tags to systems that automatically read tags (Technorati, any feed readers).

    However, if you want them to be both categories and tags to WordPress 2.3, then you need to enter them on each post as both categories and tags. The two are separated in WordPress. You can convert one to the other, but not automatically duplicate one to the other.

    If you really want to do this, perhaps you should reconsider why you are using categories at all?
