How to Add Tags and Categories to WordPress Pages

Tags Categories Page

Categories and Tags are the main ways you can organize WordPress content. However, on a normal WordPress site, both Categories and Tags are only available for Posts. This means that you can't organize your Pages, unless you use the Parent/Child setup.

You also can't perform some useful tasks with PublishPress plugins. For example, you could use Categories to control who can read certain Pages, or could force users to create Pages with a specific Category.

The solution to this problem is a plugin such as TaxoPress. This plugin allows to add Tags and/or Categories to Pages. You can also show both Post and Pages together, if they share a taxonomy term.

Follow along with this guide and I'll show you how to organize your WordPress Pages.

How to Use Nested Blocks in the Gutenberg Editor

Nested Blocks

Nested blocks are a really useful feature in the Gutenberg editor. If you haven't used them yet, you almost certainly will when the new “Full-Site Editing” changes arrive in WordPress 5.8. At that point, you will be able to build complete webpages in Gutenberg and I guarantee you'll be using nested blocks.

Nested blocks makes it easy to create advanced layouts. This is because nested blocks are blocks inside other blocks. A simple example is a Column block with a text block inside. Another example is a pricing block with a “Buy Now” button block inside.

Some common uses of nested blocks are the default Columns, Cover, or Group blocks.
