Converting Categories to Tags (3 posts)

    I imported a blog over from Blogger and am trying to convert my categories to tags. However, it is not working. I clicked on the link from the categories admin page that takes me to the Conversion page, and each time I select all and Click on Convert, it refreshes the page but all the categories remain categories.

    Any thoughts on what I may be doing wrong?

    Thanks

    Ok this is crazy. So I scrolled all the way down and clicked the CONVERT button at the bottom of the page instead of the top and it converted successfully. Go figure!

    Hi,

    1) Login to your wordpress dashboard.
    2) Go to Tools à Categories and Tags Converter.
    3) Select the tags or categories you want to convert.
    4) Click on Convert.

    It should be working otherwise you can use this plugin:
