My-Tags WordPress Plugin

This is a WordPress plugin that automatically adds the "tag" relation to the URLs of your categories as generated by WordPress. Please note that this plugin has been discontinued.

This plugin adds the "tag" relation to your categories’ URLs or constructs custom URLs for your category names, eg Technorati tags style, which also have the "tag" relation, and appends a Tags section to your post’s body in single post view and to the item’s content in the feed. Obviously, this could be useful only to those who use the WordPress category system as a tagging system.

See the result at the end of my posts’ bodies.


Place the my-tags.php file in your /wp-content/plugins/ directory and activate it through the administration panel.


By default, the URLs to your categories are being used. But, you can define your favorite URL base. For example, if you set $my_tags_url to the following:

$my_tags_url = "";

The Tags section will contain URLs to:

The above assumes that one of the post’s categories is Plugins.

    Christian: I am afraid this plugin would be useful only to those who use the WP category system as a tagging system. It just adds a section like the following at the end of the post’s body in single post view and at the end of the item’s content in the feed:
    Tags: Software, WordPress, Plugins
    In my Permalink options I just have set it to use the word "tag" instead of "category". This is why the URLs of my categories are like the following:

    To tell you the truth I do not properly understand what you need to do. If your question at the wordpress support forum was more descriptive, I guess there would me more replies.

    why do you think I can’t do the same? I’d like to have tags like delicious or flickr, I don’t care about categories. I’ll have another look to the link. Thanks, chr

    In this case, my plugin could be useful. I thought you wanted separate category and tag systems. :-)

    Now I understand what you meant. You need to use tag combinations in order to limit the search results. Very interesting idea. At the moment nothing comes to my mind about how to implement something like that quickly. I believe it needs some work because a way of selecting more than one tags is needed, the rewrite rules need customization, etc. etc. I would not say it’s impossible though.
