    I would like to be able to show the categories under each post on the spun theme, but I cannot figure out how to do it, thanks

    The blog I need help with is luluinthewoods.com.

    Looking at the demo site, it seems everything in Spun defaults to tags and not categories.

    Let me tag this for Staff input.

    Hi Louisa – Correct, Spun does not display categories. While this theme focusses more on tags and post formats, you can still use a category widget if you’d like your readers to be able to find posts by category. Any categories you’ve assigned to your posts will be picked up and reflected there.

    Or if you want to continue using Spun as your theme, you can use the category to tag converter and going forward, only use tags. See here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/#converting-categories-to-tags

    Hi Jennifer, when I try to convert my categories to tags, I get redirected to the import blog page, the same if I try to convert tags to categories, is this normal?

    thanks.

    Hey lulu, Entirely normal. That is where the conversion tool is located in the Dashboard. (Dashboard>Tools>Import>Categories and Tags Converter to be exact.)

    Click on the link there and you’ll see two choices at the top of the page:
    Categories to Tags (the one you want)
    Tags to Categories

    Try one or two at first if you want to see how it works.
