Adding tags

  1. Hi! I'm having trouble adding tags after I've published my post. It was a page, but, I changed it to a post. But, when I try to edit and add a tag or category, it won't add. If I press on tags in dashboard, it takes me to a page where I can add tags, and then a description. What's up with that?
    Thank-you,
    Renee

    The blog I need help with is ireneebird.wordpress.com.

  2. May I please have an active link starting with http:// to the post in question so I can examine it and try to help you?

  3. http://ireneebird.wordpress.com Here it is. Sorry, I'm new at this! I also only work from an i-pad.
    Thanks,
    Renee

  4. Your post here does have categories and tags. Click the title to see them at the ned of the post. Unless you use the P2 theme which is a Twitter-like theme, the front pages of our blogs showcase content only, and comments are collapsed on that page. You cannot change this as the way the comments function is coded into the core of WordPress. By clicking the post title or the comments link the posts on the front page open on their own page where all comments display.

    In a new blog one does not have many posts or comments. In an established blog if the comments did not collapse on the front page it would become a mile long in no time flat and page loading time is a page ranking factor. We have only seconds before visitors refuse to wait and click out.

  5. time thief, thanks for all your advice, but I can't add any new tags. And, what does uncategorized mean? Thanks!

  6. Uncategriezed is the default acategory that's automatically assigned to any post we do not assign a category to. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/#setting-the-default-category

    Clicking Edit under the name of a post will take you to the dashboard editor, where you can make changes. Please describe exactly happens what you try to edit the post in question?

    1. There maybe be problems with your ISP and/or with the proxy servers. How are you connecting to the internet and to WordPress.com? The way you connect to the internet (mobile, satellite, DSL, dial-up) and to your blog, and how many proxy server jumps etc. it takes to connect can cause problems.

    2. Are you using http:// or https:// see http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

  7. When I click edit under a post, it takes me to the dashboard editor, yet when I try to add a tag, press add tag, then update, it does not add it. Same with categories. When I go to dashboard-post or category, it takes me to another screen, where I can add tags or categories, and they show up on the right-hand side, yet they're not really added to the post! (this whole thing is So confusing!)
    1. DSL, I can't log in to word.press with ireneebird.wordpress.com. Isn't that weird? Have to search WordPress.com, click on it, then I'm in!

    It's important to know that clearing your browser cache and cookies ought to be done frequently and indeed every time you leave the interent. Otherwise what your browser will display is cached (old) data and you get the kind of issue you are experiencing right now. Please do it. http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050

  9. Ok, I cleared browser cache and cookies. (but, i liked those cookies, haha) Am I supposed to clear history also? Thanks, Renee.

  10. I always clear my history too. Please update us after you have your son go through the troubleshooting tips above.
