n the post screen, I want to remove the option of multi-authors being able to ‘free tag’ their posts. In other words, only allow tags that have been preset in the admin tags section.(these tags are of course visible in the tag cloud in posts screen) The concept is to prevent authors introducing random tags in their posts, leading to duplication and confusion.
Can’t see any plugins to do this, but may be other ways to do it?
Add the following code to the function.php file in the WordPress theme you are using. Take note of the closing and opening PHP tags. This will disable and hide the field and Add New Tag button making the only tagging option the pre-defined tags in the admin section.
