Support » Plugin: WP Photo Album Plus » Setting Tags and Categories

    Just to confirm, all references to Tags and Categories concern the tags and categories that have been created within WordPress for the Web site, correct? There doesn’t seem to be any way to create tags or categories within WPAA.

    The Web site I’m working on has tags for its posts (and should have categories). These have nothing to do with the tags and categories that will be applied to the photos and albums. Is there any way to create a separate taxonomies of tags and categories that can be reserved for the photos and albums, so the two sets aren’t confounded? (For what it’s worth, I use Pods for that.)

    Am I coorect in understanding that Categories are applied to albums and Tags are applied to photos?

    On the Edit Album Information screen are four buttons that I don’t understand:
    – What is the difference between “Inherit Cats” and “Add Inherit Cats”?
    – What is the difference between “Apply default tags” and “Add default tags”?

    Thank you for your involvement in this plugin and for your patience.

    Incorrect. You can add any tag or cat in the album admin. As soon as you add a new tag or cat, it exists, and later on you will find it in the existing tags/cats selectionboxes.

    Correct, they work that same way.

    Inhertit means replace possible existing cats by the (grand)parents cats. Add inherit means add them to possible already existing cats.

    Never mind, its my pleasure.

    Thanks for the response. Experimented a bit and think I understand how cats and tags work.

    A suggestion on terminology: It would make more sense to me for the “Inherit Cats” button to read “Apply Cats” and the “Add Inherit Cats” button to read “Add Cats”. The word Inherit applies to something you receive from a progenitor or superior and suggests to me that the Album I’m in is going to receive the Cats in question, when in fact they are being passed down to subalbums.

    Thank you. You see english is not my native language. I am afraid that “Apply Cats” makes not clear that will apply down the sub-album tree as opposed to only to the album itsself. Isn’t there a clear word for ‘inherit to’ as opposed to ‘inherit from’?
    ( In Dutch it is ‘erven van’ (from) and ‘erflaten aan’ (to)
