    Category to Pages WUD is an easy to use Categories and/or Tags for pages plugin.
    With the same Categories and/or Tags functionality as it is by WordPress for posts.

    By default both categories and tags are only limited to posts, so when you create a new page in WordPress,
    you will notice that there is no option to add categories or tags to your WordPress page.
    What this plugin does is that it modifies the default categories and tag taxonomies and associate them with Page post type along with the default posts.

    Now also possible to set it as: unique categories and tags for pages!

    Hi Danny,
    would it be possible to activate “unique categories for pages” only?
    This is because sometimes it is necessary to have the categories of the pages separated from those of the posts (and this is done very well by WUD), but being able to keep the same TAGs in common for the pages and for the posts.

    Thanks
    Andrea

    Hi Andrea,
    I have to analyse this and see what’s possible.
    In first thought i suppose it’s possible.

    Hi Andrea,

    By WordPress default pages does not have categories or tags.
    The only possible thing to make is:
    Enable: Unique page categories/tags
    Disable: Add Tags to pages

    In this way you will have page categories only.
    Because by disabling this, WordPress does not provide page tags.

    Regards, Danny

    Yes, but I wanted to have the tags on the pages, but they must be in common with the post.
    To better explain:
    1) PAGES: page_category + tags.
    2) POST: category + tags.
    In this way pages and post have separate categories, but the tags are in common between pages and posts.
    It would be like being able to separate the selector “Unique page categories/tags” DISABLED/ENABLED, in:
    Unique page categories: DISABLED/ENABLED
    Unique page tags: DISABLED/ENABLED
    Made myself clear?

    Regards, Andrea.

    In the next release (2.3.9), set the settings page like this:
    Unique page categories/tags : ON
    Add Categories to pages : ON
    Add Tags to pages : OFF

    The moment you switch this ‘Add Tags to pages’ to OFF, it will use the POST categories for pages.
    If you slide it back ON, they will be unique Page Tags.
    Is this oké for you?

    Regards Danny

    Did you mean to say that the TAGs of the articles will be used when I switch to OFF?
    If that’s the case, for me it’s okay.

    Andrea.

    Hi Andrea,
    Yes 😉
    If unique is on for cat and tag and you switch ‘Add Tags to pages’ to OFF, it will use the POST tags for PAGES, so post and pages can be listed by TAG.
    Regards, Danny

    Perfect! I am looking forward to waiting for Monday to download the new version.
    One question: since I have already written many Page Tags, what happens to them when I switch the switch to OFF?
    Will they be lost, or become Post Tags automatically? My pages that contain links to those Page Tags, what happens to them?
    Thanks, Andrea.

    If you switch it off, it start to use POST tags.
    If no previous POST tags where assigned to the pages, these pages haves NO tags.
    If you switch back to PAGE tags, it will use the previous assigned PAGE tags.

    The TAGS register are 2 different TABLES, so they have nothing shared.

    Regards, Danny

    Ok, now in the pages I can use the same tags used with posts.
    I have transferred the Page_Tags in the Tags (those of the posts), I have changed the references in the pages, etc.
    But there is a problem: when I click on a tag on a page of the site, it should make a list of all the posts (and pages) that contain that tag.
    Instead the search by tags, returns only the posts (no page that contains that tag).
    I have the impression that the search for that TAG is made only between the various posts (as is standard for wordpress) instead of searching even within the pages.

    Regards, Andrea.

    P.S.: In the pages I have a widget that lists the taxonomies of the page: of course the tags are displayed, this means that the correlation between page and tag is right.

    I did a little test: I installed “Simple Tags” together with your plugin to verify where the defect I wrote just before came from.
    Well now the tag search works correctly: the page of the results lists both the pages and the posts.
    So I think something is missing in the last change you made. I would like to just keep your plugin and delete Simple Tags.

    Thanks, Andrea.

    Hi Andrea,
    I found a solution for this, which will be included in the next release.
    Sorry for the inconvenience it caused.
    Regards, Danny

    Well, I’m glad you found the flaw.
    Danny, you do not have to apologize for this: your plugin is free and all we get from your plugin is a gift. We are the ones who have to thank you for your work, it is not you that you have to apologize if something does not work well.
    Thanks, Andrea.
