This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Tag Grouping


With a few simple steps you can transform your tags into a manageable bunch of groups. No more clicking on each tag for every post or pasting in a long string of tags.
Now, with Tag Grouping, you can enable a checkbox for each group of tags you wish to associate with a post. When you save that post, the tags are added as if you were using the normal
WordPress interface. As an added bonus, if you decide to alter a group of tags later and add more tags, all your posts with that group will receive the updated tag list.

Creation of groups just got simpler with version 1.1. Now you can paste in your list of tags during the creation process and the plugin will automatically take care of splitting
them up, comparing them to the existing tags, adding new ones to your database and adding all of them to your group.

In a nutshell:

  • Create groups of tags quickly and easily that can be used on any post.
  • Retroactively add tags to multiple posts when updating an existing group that is contained by the posts.
