Links to Tags???

  1. I noticed some websites provide links in their articles that direct the reader to all relevant articles containing that term on their site. I'm aware that, essentially, this is a tag. So is it possible to set up links like this? In other words, can I use a tag in my article as a link to all related topics in my blog. If so, how do I accomplish this?

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

  2. Tag or categorise your posts when you create them and use the tags or categories widget in your sidebar. Search the support pages for more information, there's loads of information there to get you up and running.

  3. Both the categories and the tags widgets offer this functionality in your side or bottom widget area.

    Also, it is possible on some themes to offer a direct link to a specific tag/category from the navigation menu.

    We can assign tags and categories to our Posts, not to Pages. Every Category and Tag we assign becomes a link.

    Categories allowed for a broad grouping of post topics, but when you wanted to describe a post in more specific terms, more categories were required. So we now have tags, too. Tags are similar to categories, but they are generally used to describe your post in more detail. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories-vs-tags/ and http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/tags/

    The Global Tag Listings at WordPress.com aggregate all published posts attached to any particular tag or category, and display our most popular topics. If you have published a new post and it isn’t showing up in the global tag listings for the tag and categories that you’ve used, there are several possible explanations. http://en.support.wordpress.com/global-tags/#missing-posts
