    Hello,

    Is it possible to link/merge tags, so that two different tags are considered one and the same? For example if I have a post with a tag “Trump” it would show related posts for “Trump” as well as “Donald Trump”.

    Hi taadike

    Are those the only one you want to merge, or are there more tags?

    There are quite a few more tags, perhaps a dozen.
    Users on my site are constantly publishing new posts with tags either “Trump” or “Donald Trump” for example. I’d like these tags to be considered one and the same by your Related Posts plugin.

    Sorry for the late reply.

    There is no easy way to do this. I also assume more duplicate terms will arise in future.
    Isn’t it easier to merge the duplicate terms with a plugin?

    Or/and restrict the terms a user can add.

    Thanks for your reply. I have considered these but you are right – more duplicate terms will arise in future and I would not want to restrict taxonomies. I guess its best to hire a developer for this.
    Thanks anyway.
