Lastly can i set these tags when uploading images/blogs through xml-rpc ? May 23, 2007 at 8:40 pm #108948 katmMember WP uses the term Categories. 1. Tags can be created when you write your post. There’s a box on the right hand side. Or you can go to your dashboard – manage – categories. 2. Images don’t get tagged. 3. At least using BlogDesk, you can tag a post. I’m not sure if you can create categories within the software or not. I never looked and I’m not sitting in front of that computer right now.

It’s not in the main window, but I haven’t gone through all the menus and submenus to find out. But yeah. There’s an option in there somewhere to import your categories. If I need a new one then I create it using dashboard-manage-categories and then reimport the categories into BlogDesk.

Then you can “tweak” it in your blog. Author Posts The topic ‘Setting tags for my Blog’ is closed to new replies.
