Category vs. Tag

  • Author

    When publishing a new post, there are two different sections on the left which says “Post Tags” and “Categories” which made me confused…
    What is the difference between a Category and a Tag?
    Why they both exist together?
    What is their purpose? What are they used for? What can they do?

    Please help.
    Thanks in advance.


    See here:

    And please paste the exact URL of your blog when asking questions here, or link your nickname to your blog (as explained in the Sticky 8 Things to Know Before Posting). We usually need that to give a relevant answer.



    We certainly do for this question, as the answer really does depend on the blog.

    (@rain: Note that if you see me ask for a blog link while also answering the actual question, it means I’ve tried the username as blog name and found a blog; if I find no blog that way, I ask for a link without answering.)
