This plugin is a follow-up to the post which I wrote a few years ago. – The idea was (and still is) to equip pages with tags and include their number in a combined posts and pages tag-cloud.

TagPages is fully compatible with https/SSL/TLS-sites and WordPress multisite network.

  • This screenshot illustrates editing a page in the Admin Menu.

  • The second picture shows the Pages section in the Admin Menu.


  1. Copy the tagpages directory into your WordPress plugins directory (usually wp-content/plugins). Hint: You can also conduct this step within your Admin Menu.

  2. In the WordPress Admin Menu go to the Plugins tab and activate the TagPages plugin.

  3. Be happy and celebrate! (and maybe you want to add a link to http://www.bernhard-riedl.com/projects/)


How can I display the chosen tags on my pages?

You can use for example the built-in Theme Editor of WordPress to edit page.php (if such a template exists for your theme). WordPress provides two template functions which can be used out-of-the-box: the_tags and get_the_tags.

For further information about themes, please refer to the WordPress Codex Pages for Theme Development or the user’s manual of our theme.

Will the tags I’ve created with TagPages be lost if I change the theme or disable TagPages?

Not at all. – TagPages is based on the built-in WordPress taxonomy. – Even if you change the theme or deactivate TagPages, your tags and their relations to posts and pages will not be harmed. 😉

Why do the Post Tags sections for posts and pages in the Admin Menu show the same tag count?

The reason for that is that we combine the number of occurrences of tags used in posts and pages in the taxonomy Post Tags. Though, if you click on the number of a certain tag, WordPress will only show the related posts or pages of the selected tag.

Does TagPages work for WordPress prior 3.0?

Sorry folks, no it doesn’t. – But you can have a look at my post, which explains how to establish tags functionality for pages in WordPress 2.3 – 2.9.
