Categories Development Tags Post author By Chris Tingom Post date February 20, 2006 3 Comments on Tags What’s the best plugin for WordPress if you want to get onto the tagging bandwagon? I’m looking at two plugins right now: SimpleTags and Jerome’s Keywords Plugin.

I really like that you can use it with any blogging tool or method (like via email or standalone programs) not just when posting from the WordPress admin itself. All you have to do is enclose what you want in a square-bracketed [tags] field inside our regular post. I’in the middle of a gradual rebuild of my site layout, so I may end up deemphasizing the tages a bit with CSS. I’ve been very happy with SimpleTags. The thing is : with wordpress you don’t need any plugin. Technorati indexes as “tags” anything that’s linked to with “category” in the anchor. Create your tags/category on the fly in the post interface and not only you’re tagging, but you’re even populating your site with category archive pages that makes the whole thing searchable. Thanks! I’ll give SimpleTags a whirl and see how it goes. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.Comment Name Email Website This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
