    Support’s closed. I guess it won’t be fixed today.

    Oh well.

    It would be nice if we at least had an acknowledgement from the devs this is being addressed. So far it’s a show-stopper for tags.

    Same problem for me, all the links from the tags cloud widget point to a 404 error page. It seems to be a 301 redirect issue.

    When you click on a tag “dogs” from the tags cloud widget, a page “myblog.wordpress.com/tag/dogs” 301 redirects to a “myblog.wordpress.com/category/dogs” page that of course doesn’t exists and leads to a 404.

    Everything in my tag cloud points to a 404 page. Argh!

    You, sir, are a genius.

    The /tag/ URLs are working now.

    Hallelujiah, they work. Thanks Josephscott and the team.

    Now if you’d just put the extra space after the ‘as’. ;-)

    The tags work in the theme to search globally on wp.com but the tag cloud widget still redirects on my local domain to the /category/ directory and a 404 error.

    Weird. Swein, yours seems to still be redirecting from tags to categories that, of course, don’t exist.

    Pip, yup. I’ve had problems in the past where WP bugs that were allegedly fixed didn’t work for me, I think because they actually have a number of servers, where the redirect would need to be fixed. I’m sending a support email.

    I’ve seen a few reports of there still being redirect problems on some blogs. We are looking into why .

    #148927

    The reason for a few individual blogs to still have problems with /tag/ URLs has been identified. If you are still seeing this problem please contact support and we can take care of it.

    I’ll leave my tag cloud widget up (which looks awful on my theme) because I’m still getting the redirects to /category/ and wait until support opens up this morning.
