    Probably a simple question but does this plugin merge different spellings of a term? For ex. "Blocks" "block" "a block" can be associated with just one main term "Block" and all term posts will be associated with that main parent only?

    No, it can only merge terms, i.e. replace the aliases with a single term.

    ok thanks scribu, that still works. is that a one time merge? if future tags come in from authors will they automatically fall in-line if they've been merged before? or is this manual one time merging?

    Automated merging has been requested before. I would add it, but there are only so many hours in a day. Patches welcome.

    Hi

    I would also need similar thing, to merge all "numerical" tags into one textual.

    Reason: I use title to tags, so I get too many prices in tags. It has option which tags to exclude, but then I would have to make a list of all exclude prices, which is almost impossible

    Possible?

    Thanks

    Even without automated merging, this is a godsend for me on my aggregator site that uses FeedWordPress. I accidentally set it to create new tags for syndicated content rather than trying to match existing tags, and this really helped me clean it up. I was able to merge 109 (yes 109) terms into one super-quick. I like that I can type in the slug, too, and it'll merge everything to the category with that slug.
