Can see this subject will need stickying
Design decision. WordPress doesn’t support tags or categories on Pages.
That’s a start, but when you go to the URL/?tag=xx page, the pages do not show up. That was a functionality Simple Tagging Plugin had.
Can someone restore that? I have header pages for my tag links. I can probably do it on my own…
To be honest, I’m a little ticked that the functionality is different. If I would have known that I wouldn’t have upgraded.
jonerikstorm–have you considered restoring to your backup?
I have considered it, but it doesn’t work even with new pages.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m stoked on the upgrade, and I’m thankful for the plugin, too.
I just didn’t think that the /?tag=foo would go away…
Which file controls the query variable? I’ll write the code if necessary.
I can understand not having categories on pages, but tags provide a different function and would be useful on pages. I guess I won’t be using the tags function in 2.3 at all and will be continuing to use a plugin instead. The plugin will also be useful for meta keywords, which the new tag feature apparently doesn’t support.
I don’t want to sound unappreciative (WordPress rocks!) but the new WordPress feature isn’t at all useful for me and probably not for a lot of other people either.
Haecceity: Use a plugin to extend tags to pages if you like:
I tried installing tags4page but how to make the tags show in the tag cloud widget is a mystery.
“To view the tags in your blog you have to add the WordPress function <?php the_tags(); ?> to your themes, please refer to the documentation page for more information (http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/the_tags).?”
Yes, but which file does this piece of code need to go in, and where?
for pages tagging functionality with wordpress 2.3 have a look at this post on my weblog.
