I have been using a test site to experiment with setting up some custom taxonomies.. and so far have been finding them very simple to initially set-up
I would like to eventually set up some custom taxonomies on a blog/magazine site i run with a few friends
However i seem to have come across a very obvious predicament that i see no way to (currently) solve... i have searched the forums, and (to my suprise) couldn't find anybody with a similar problem
The site we run is a motorsport based site, and we currently use 'tags' in the same way that most people would
If you take a quick glance at our archives page http://f1stockcars.com/about/archives/ you can see our 'tag cloud'
Our 'tags' mostly fall into a small collection of categories
These would be: 'Driver Name', 'Venue/stadium', 'Championship' then just 'random subjects'
It would make sense to us upon release of WP3.0 to set up custom taxonomies for those three specific subject (leaving the random tags in the traditional 'tags' category)
My problem is not setting up these Custom Taxonomies...
But simply... "How would i take all the specific tags from the old 'tags' category and move them to the new ones?"
For example, how could i take each of the drivers names in the 'tags' and move them all over to the 'Drivers Names' category WITHOUT having to resort to the un-thinkable, of being forced to delete all the old tags, and then go though over 400+ posts "re-tagging" them with the new driver names tags in the 'drivers names' custom taxonomy?
At the moment i see no simple way to do this, and i can only imagine i will not be alone in wanting to achieve this (theoretically) simple task
The most obvious solution for this would be to be able to use the "bulk action" drop down on the tags edit page in admin area... so i could just tick all the relevant 'driver name tags' and select something like 'move to Driver Name' from the bulk actions drop down selector
Anyway, i think you get the idea of what i'm trying to do, and i hope someone can point me in the right direction
Many thanks - Ade
