    You can – but when viewing posts/events in a category/tag term the events be treated as posts (sorted by post date, will not show event dates/venue etc, unless you alter you theme to do otherwise).

    You can the default post categories/tags taxonomy with the following (in your own plug-in or functions.php)

    register_taxonomy_for_object_type('post_tag', 'event');
    register_taxonomy_for_object_type('category', 'event');


    I would like to have the same functionality.
    I have tried the code above but nothing happend.

    What i need is to see list of my default kategories in EVENT edit page instead of event categories.
    So I can choose.


    Hi javllar,

    You need to wrap it inside a callback hook onto the init action.


    function javllar_add_cats_to_event(){
        register_taxonomy_for_object_type('post_tag', 'event');
        register_taxonomy_for_object_type('category', 'event');

    Note that this just adds the (default) category metabox to the event admin page. The calendar etc still uses event categories. There isn’t a way round this without creating further problems. As mentioned above viewing a (default) category will treat your events like posts. Again, there isn’t an easy way of resolving this.

    Ok it works fine.
    Thanks a lot.

    I just need to find a way , how to tell wordpress to show events in categories.
