I am configuiring a new blog, and what I’d like is to disable categories (i.e not use them and have them not appear on the templates) and instead have a blank field in the write or edit post form where one could write a list of tags ala del.icio.us, or ala this help forum (I see just the kind of thing I am looking for below!)
I suspect I will need at least one plugin and a bit of template tweaking for this, but before I plough in and muck everything up, I wondered if anyone has done this before and what solution they found.
I will also want to sort by author (it’s a community blog), in case that’s relevant (I was going to post about that separately).
Another plugin that I hadn’t seen until just now is Ultimate Tag Warrior. It supposedly wraps it all up into one nice package. I haven’t tried this one yet.
The Modified Cat2Tag plugin works with WP-CaTT for me, although it never displays a success message for publishing a post. After a bit, I just check my site and there it is. I haven’t tested Intersect either.
Thanks for the tips. I am playing with Ultimate Tag Warrior. If you don’t here from me, you’ll know it worked (unless you would rather I post).
I probably will post again about the author thing – the blog is brand new and I am still playing with it so I can do what I like with the permalink structure. In fact, when I have it how I like it, I might reinstall before I launch it, since there are some leftovers in some folders from trying some other plugins.
