Support » Fixing WordPress » Nested Categories to Tags

  • Hi guys:

    I just ran the “Categories to tags” function in WP2.6, and it created a problem. I use nested categories, meaning categories-within-categories. Is there any way to get WP to convert all *nested* category assignments into tags as well?

    Example Category Tree:
    Animals
    -Mammals
    –Dogs
    —Dalmations
    —-Bowser *Bowser is the category for my post.

    Expected result:
    Tags: Animals, Mammals, Dogs, Dalmations, Bowser

    Actual result:
    Tags: Bowser

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!
    Adam

  • It would be fine if I could somehow just do an SQL query that would take all posts in the “Bowser” category and also assign them to the “Dalmations”, “Dogs”, “Mammals”, and “Animals” categories. If I could do that, then it would be easy to do a simple cats-to-tags. Anybody know how to do this?

    Sorry to keep harping on this one, but it’s a big deal for me! Maybe another way to say this is that I want to “flatten” my category tree, as described above. Does NOBODY have any idea how to do this? Please? It would be a huge help!
