I read in a now closed thread that you should NOT use the same term as a Category and as a Tag. With my Delicious Menu them from Woo Themes, the featured areas work on Tags but not Categories.
So if I want to feature, for example, the "Diary" category, then those posts also need a "Diary" (or something like it) Tag. Is this a problem?
I've noticed that if you use the same term as a Tag first, the Category slug gets modified, like to "Diary-XYZ" or something. But it seems like using the Category first and then similar Tag name doesn't cause any issues I can see.
Am I missing something? Should I change the repeated names?
