Editing categories

  1. When I started my blog, I didn't have a clue about using tags and categories.

    If I go back and manually revise the categories for about half of my posts, can I then substitute a category list for my current tag cloud and have the updated categories appear?

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

    Categories and Tags are treated exactly the same way by search engines. There is a means of converting Categories to Tags and visa versa. Go to Posts > Categories and scroll down to the bottom of the page.
    Note:
    Deleting a category does not delete the posts in that category. Instead, posts that were only assigned to the deleted category are set to the category ______default category______
    Categories can be selectively converted to tags using the category to tag converter. http://shoreacres.wordpress.com/wp-admin/admin.php?import=wp-cat2tag

  3. Oh, you are an angel! Thanks!

  4. Oops - just wondering - does that link to my admin page give other people access?

    No it does not. Only you can use it. This is what I get when I click it:

    You are not allowed to import.

    You're welcome and best wishes. :)
