Great vid 🙂
I’m still missing a quick and easy function for putting cathegorys to a static page. I’ve tried to follow some instgructions in the forum by putting the link with the cathegory as the title of the page, without any sucess. Looking forward to a smooth solution to that.
But anhyhows, great thing with the vids. Keep it up!

Finally! Tags now make sense. I don’t have enough posts yet to make this useful but I will now go back and make tags for all of my posts for future use so I don’t have to go back and make tags on 100 posts later.
Thank You WordPress TV.

How do I add categories to pages – not posts?
June 8, 2009 at 6:29 am |
I’ve been trying for an hour now to find the Category Post. Need some help here, please. The video — though I’m on roadrunner, etc. — interrupts every few seconds and is very hard to follow for that reason. Please put a sort of index on the main support page where words such as “setting categories” can be links to some specific 1, 2, 3 instructions.

What about a “sticky tag” what does “Sticky” mean?

having trouble using my instructor’s blog(laura). Cannot figure out how to add tag to post. Video shows different interface than what I see. Video makes sense, but it does not match what I see. Been maucking about with this feature for too long now. Help. Thank you.

Nice video! Bur I have a problem that i can´t solve.
Im trying to add 5000 plus tags (They are words that no longer are used in sweden), but there seems to be a limit om how many tags you can have in wordpress?

I have tags that turn up in my list of posts on my dashboard, but they never show up on the post on the screen. How do I get them onto the actual post that people see. My categories are on the sidebar. I’m using a theme from the wordpress list, not the deault one. Would that make any difference. Anne

Good explanation for those not in the know.
I experience some problems. I add categories, but when I click on one under one of the posts in my blog the system thinks its a tag and directs me to http://en.wordpress.com/tag/mycategoryname/
The only category that seems to be working right is the default ‘Uncategorized’
Am I the only one experiencing the same problem?
Could be a bug, team.

Thanks for the video. Still confused one point. Do tags on a wordpress.com blog help Web users to find our blogs?

thanks for the video. one question though. I want to have my sub-categories drop down from my parent categories. How do I do that?
November 6, 2009 at 8:28 pm |
How do I get my tags to appear in the actual post? Right now only my categories appear.

Is there a way to organize sub-categories? It seems to automatically do so alphabetically… Thanks!

I have been trying to work out what tags are, and how to use them for the past week. Watching this, the penny dropped! Thankyou

Thanks a lot!!! Now I know what’s the difference between these two. 😀

How do I reorder my pages tabs at the top of my page? Where do I go to to find this facility? When set to zero it is in alphabetical order but I have tried putting in page 1 in the box but there is no change to the order…I have 4 or 5 pages. Sorry but I need absolute step by step guidance not being computer literate…
Many thanks, Graham
