Number of tags or taxonomy terms

With the PublishPress Checklists plugin, you can require a maximum and minimum number of tags for your WordPress posts. This feature also supports taxonomy terms from other plugins or custom post types.

If the correct number of tags aren't added, you can choose to show a warning, or prevent the post from being published.

Having the correct number of tags is important for your site's SEO. This guide shows how to choose the number of tags.
