Require Post Tags


Tired of untagged posts? Use this simple plugin to require users to add at least one post tag before saving a draft, updating a post, or publishing a post. This applies to normal posts and may not be compatible with custom write panels or custom post types.


  • Alert appears when you try to save a post without adding at least one tag


  1. Extract the require-post-tags folder to your wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the admin interface


Are there any settings I can adjust?

Nope, just install and activate, that’s it!
