This simple jQuery-based plugin adds a list of existing (already used) tags with posts count for each tag into “Tags” box on new/edit post form. No more hard time remembering your hundreds of tags – simply click the one you need to add it to the post. Clicked tags are removed from tags list after they inserted into a post – so no worries about inserting one tag several times. No tuning and customizing needed – it just works as it is. Also, you now can hover a tag with mouse pointer to get a short list of five last posts tagged by it.
v.1.14 – Made some changes in paths, cause automatic plugin update feature seems to move updated plugin from
/wp-content/plugins/wp-existing-tags/. Now installation require you to put
/wp-content/plugins/wp-existing-tags/ directory or manually edit paths after update to point to your custom directory.
v.1.12 – Fix: in_array() wrong datatype warning occured when editing post with no tags on it.
v.1.11 – Made some minor tweaks: clicked tags are removed from tags list after they inserted into a post; when editing, tags already assigned to the post do not appear in the list.
v.1.1 – Now prints number of posts for each tag. Also, you now can hover a tag with mouse pointer to get a short list of five last posts tagged by it.
v.1.0 – Initial version, basic functionality.
