[resolved] Tag management WP2.3 (20 posts)

    Apologies if I am missing something, but with the new tagging feature in WP2.3 where is the admin / management system for it?

    I can add tags to a post, get them to display in post meta and generate a tag cloud - which is excellent.

    I had expected to see somewhere an admin page that listed tags (Manage > Tags ?), and enabled you to manage them - much like categories.

    Perhaps in Manage > Posts there might have been a column listing the tags per post - much like it lists the categories.

    It is now great to be able to filter by Status (as well as the previous Month and Category) but what about filter by the new Tagging system?

    Or is this where UTW or SimpleTagging etc plugins might develop towards??

    What is the code you used to generate the cloud? Also, did you manage to write it out using mod_rewrite instead of a querystring?

    I also cannot find any tag management system. I just imported my previous tags from UTW.

    I can only get the tags to show in a single webpage. How do you get it to show in the index.php, the entry page with multiple posts?

    It was a template screwup, nevermind.

    Digging around I found I could get a cloud using:
    <?php echo (wp_tag_cloud()); ?>
    Settings can be found in category-template.php

    I have installed 2.3 beta 3 on a development box of mine and I was surprised to not see a tag management system anywhere either.

    This is a bit worrying - surely users need some way to delete or rename tags, that doesn't involve digging into the database?

    Although I suppose adding a basic tag management screen is something that's not too difficult to add later.

    I just listened to Episode 29 of the WordPress podcast - and according to this, the reason there is no user interface is that they didn't want to provide something until users were clear on what they wanted.

    IMHO, this is a bad move. Surely a basic UI to fix misspelled tags, etc. is needed? According to the podcast, the only way to rename or delete a tag is to go directly into the database.

    They went on to say that without doubt some users will code plugins that will allow you to do some basic management soon, but why wait on something so fundamental such as a basic management screen for the core of WP? I am puzzled to say the least.

    Yes I do agree on that part. A basic interface is definitely needed to rename the tags. Not everyone blogging knows how to access phpAdmin and then alter the db values. But then again, looking back, it may actually be a good thing not to rush too many things into the new release.

    This is cool and helps me with the consideration of whether to jump to 2.3 when it is in final. (I'm testing RC1 on a development box)

    @HandySolo
    Thanks for the link - looks like a good start.

    Have also looked at these:
    http://www.neato.co.nz/wordpress-things/tag-suggest-thing
    Suggested some interesting tags.

    As I only have a few tags (at the moment) this plugin is most useful.

    Jesus. I just converted 88 tags, across 4500 posts and now I find out there not even a way to SEARCH/FILTER via tags. WTF guys?

    > didn't want to provide something until users were clear on what they wanted.

    That's just retarded. Why completely overhaul something, without even a rudimentary way of managing it!?

    Even better, Simple Tagging has been replaced by Simple Tags to use the built in tag system but with all the previous functions - including tag management.

    Unless I'm missing something, is not this issue unresolved for WordPress.com users, who do not have access to plug-ins? Thanks, M.

    Oops, sorry, I just figured out that now that I've moved my blog to WP.com, I'm in the wrong forum. I've redirected my concern to tech support according to the instructions there. Best to all, M.

    There is another useless plugin, tags manager http://www.matusz.ch/blog/projekte/tags-manager-wordpress-plugin/

    In my case, I need to assign tags to previous posts (don't ask me why), based on the results of search, for example. I didn't find one
