    From the WordPress.com homepage I clicked “Food” in the “Right not in tags” section. I looked for my most recent post (Should you complain at a restaurant?) and noticed that the tags listed are not the tags I assigned, but the category I posted to. What gives?

    The wordpress.com global tags pages are where all tags and categories direct to. However, without a link to the post in question we cannot answer you. Could you post the link please?

    The “Tag system” is actually for the categories one assigns to a post, not for the actual “tags” assigned. It was named that way back when it was first introduced.

    theapparatus – thanks for the quick response. The semantics make it a little confusing.

    I was wondering about the same and quite disappointed not to find dozens of my posts with “Самара” (that’s in Russian) tag in “Right now in tags”. Here I’ve got the answer, which rather disappoints me. Couldn’t you change it either way having either “Right now in categories” with categories or “Right now in tags” with tags.
    I had to go back like more than a hundred posts to add “Самара” to previous posts but didn’t find them in “Right now…”. I really wouldn’t want to go back almost 200 posts to add “Самара” as a category.
