In the image below, you can see some typical metaboxes from , the PublishPress plugin, TaxoPress, and others.

How We Show Related Posts in WordPress

Related Posts

We have seen writers and publishers use WordPress to share their thoughts on 10,000's of topics. WordPress is a great platform to talk about everything from science and tech to intimate, personal thoughts.

But all of us want to be heard. We write so that we have a voice. We want people to stay on our site, read our work, and engage with what we have to say.

One of the best ways to achieve all those goals is to add “Related Posts” area to your posts. Once someone finishes reading your post, they'll immediately see links to similar posts.

We do this here at PublishPress. You'll always find a “Related Posts” area on our blog. In this guide, I'll show you how create and optimize this feature.

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 Prevent WordPress Users from Creating New Tags

Tags Stop

We had an interesting question from a PublishPress user this week:

I am trying to allow a some user role to choose an existing Tag, but not allow them to create new Tags. This was simple enough to do with Categories, but I cannot figure it out for Tags.

This was a great question that requires some explanation. We recommend the TaxoPress plugin for managing your tags, but PublishPress plugins can handle these more complex permissions.

Use Author Data to Automatically Create WordPress Tags

Authors Tags 1

This week, one PublishPress customer was in a situation where they needed to create Tags based on the Authors of a post.

The goal was that when someone writes a post, their name was automatically added as a Tag.

Once this was done, the customer could use the Tags to trigger other functionality. For example, they could use PublishPress notifications to send an email for any post that has the Tag for specific authors.

We wrote some code that automatically adds Author details as Tags. You can pull any information from your Author profiles and use that to create Tags.

Automatically Create Tags for Users in WordPress Roles

Create Tags

We had an interesting question from a PublishPress user this week:

Is there any way to automatically add a specific tag if the user is in a certain role?

For example, Authors will always get “Tag A” added and Editors will always get “Tag B” added. Yes, this is possible with a little code.

Once this is done, you can use the Tags to organize the content or to trigger other functionality. For example, you can use PublishPress notifications to send an email for any post that has the Tag you choose.
