Taxonomy management (2 posts)

    WordPress has had custom taxonomies for years, but there is no way to manage them. While built-in tags and categories can be converted into each other, they cannot be converted into custom taxonomies or vice-versa.

    The result is functional uselessness of custom taxonomies for any site which has already made extensive use of tags and categories.

    Further descriptions of this problem:

    Currently open support request looking for a solution to this problem:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/convert-tags-to-taxonomy-tags?replies=13
    After searching for weeks, it is clear that there is no solution at the moment. An opportunity for a plugin developer looking for a new project? Or a feature to add to any of the existing tag/category/taxonomy plugins?

    It is also seems like a glaring need within WordPress. I don't understand why custom taxonomies are in the core, but the ability to make use of them is not.

    Just getting in on this again to show support - and offer a 25 dollar donation towards anyone who develops a plugin to do this. It's not much, but I'm not making anything from my site yet, so it's a lot to me.
