Display Tags Like Categories on Add Post Screen? (4 posts)

    Trying to limit authors to a specific set of tags for all posts. To this end, am trying to see if there is a way to display a list of available tags on the "Add New Post" screen exactly like the Categories are displayed. So that the list of tags is obvious and they don't have to search for which Tags are acceptable, or worse... start guessing and waiting for the autofill to catch up.

    Is this possible?

    Looking for a similar solution to this. I want to limit the tags available to authors in order to control tag cloud bloat!

    Looking for a solution too. Please post if you have one!

    I have a custom taxonomy, with a tag for each of 10 products.
    I'd like admin users to be able to select from these 10 products only (like using the checkboxes in categories).

    I guess the simplest option would be if tags wete displayed in the write post page like categories are - checkboxes.

    Thanks for any help!

    Figured out a solution that works for me.

    Create a custom taxonomy - there are loads of great tutorials if you google and probably enough info in the codex

    Ensure that witih-in your new taxonomy 'hierarchical' => true,

    The taxonomy is now displayed and works like a category (with checkboxes in the post write panel)

    Works for me!
