Automatically Add Terms to Your WordPress Posts with TaxoPress

Automatic Terms

If you have a busy site with lots of content, it can be difficult to keep it organized. Normally, WordPress sites use Tags and Categories to organize content. However, if you're publishing 10, 100 or even 1,000's of posts every day, it can be hard to find and add the correct Tags and Categories.

One solution is to use the TaxoPress plugin. TaxoPress has an “Auto Terms” feature that can scan your content and automatically assign terms. These can be existing terms on your site, or entirely new terms chosen by analyzing your posts.

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.

Post Types Tags

Here at PublishPress, we create a lot of content, between our blog posts and documentation articles. We wanted to organize all of that content more effectively, so that it was easier to find.

In this guide, I'll show you how we use the “Tags” taxonomy to organize all the content here at PublishPress.com.

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.

What Post Details Are Stored in WordPress Revisions?

Post Revisions

We develop the PublishPress Revisions plugin that allows you to submit, moderate, approve, and schedule revisions.

This plugin is built on top of the core revisions feature in WordPress.

Our Revisions Pro plugin is able to capture all of the data that has changed in your WordPress posts. However, that is not true of the normal revisions feature. People often tell us that their revisions are missing data.
