I’m pretty sure that my question has been answered tons of times but I can’t find any trace of it.
I am studying WordPress for jobs but can’t find any differences between taxonomies, categories and also tags to a certain extent. On google, they don’t really answer it except to show that they all are the same. Would it be possible to have some real answers and maybe with a real life example to explain if possible ?
Taxonomies are just methods of classifying things. In WordPress, both tags and categories are part of WordPress’ default taxonomy systems. However, WordPress now allows you to create your own taxonomy (classification) system to suit your content. So if you ran a movie site, you might decide to use Actor, Director and Studio as a way of classifying or cross-referencing your content.
