Convert Tags to Taxonomy Tags
I’m still looking for this too.
Another post on the same topic –
Yeah, thanks for the link – I’ll follow both threads.
I feel like it has to be something someone is working on.
Someone paid to have this done a few months ago. Looks like they probably re-wrote the wpcat2tag-importer plugin.
So it’s been done. Anyone want to share?
Yes please! I don’t have much but I’ll donate a little to the developer if they post it.
I’m not familiar with that site, and don’t know how to contact the developer. Just noting that this problem seems to have been solved, but the solution does not appear to be publicly available.
Lot’s of people need it though. Here’s another one:
I appreciate the links. I couldn’t figure out that site either. 🙁
Might be useful to also try out some of the existing plugins to see if they help at all:
looks close to what is wanted, but would need testing I think. But I don’t know of a solution myself.
additionally I ‘ve closed the other thread, no point having 2 threads on the same issue.
Ultimate Taxonomy Manager does almost everything except this.
The closest thing I could find was the category-tag importer:
If it were custom taxonomies instead of categories, it would be exactly what I need.
This is built into WP 3.0.1
-Open Dashboard>Posts>Post Tags
-Click on the number in the Posts column corresponding to the tag you’re interested in
-Select “Title” — Edit — Apply
-Your Custom taxonomy will now show up as an option box; just type in the value for the taxonomy that you desire.
Polins, we’re looking for a way to convert EVERY SINGLE TAG all at once to parts of a different taxonomy.
I’m actually not even sure what “title” you’re talking about (sounds like you’re referring to a single post or editing one tag), but I don’t think I’ve found a single way to do what we’re requesting in vanilla wordpress.
Polins, what you’re describing takes you to the quick edit panel for an individual post. Hand-editing each tag in each post is exactly what we want to avoid.
Bulk taxonomy conversion is not built in, but WordPress desperately needs it.
