tags not in Dashboard

  1. Hello, I have twice added tags to my post and I don't see them in my Dashboard. Should I? This is my first post. And am I correct in understanding that these tags will one day (if I grow up and be a good blog :), others will be able to find me because of my tags?
    I do see see a category, though I'm not sure out of my short list of tags (under 10), that would have been the very one I would have chosen.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Yes if you are a "grow up and be a good blog" the tags will help others find you, actually if you are a bad blog or just a regular blog the tags will help. The Tags are one way that you can tell a search engine what is important about a Post. So choosing the proper Tags can really help people find your blog.

    Choose wisely and don't over do it (max 10 or so total Tags ++ Categories for each Post. You can have many Tags for your site, just don't go Tag happy on any single Post.

  3. Thanks! I added tags twice.... should I see them in my Dashboard or at the bottom of the post-edit page?

  4. Tags are under:

    Dashboard >> Posts >> you will then see Categories and Tags listed under the Posts tab.

    Tags will be listed (on my blog anyway) on the right side when I have a Post open to Edit the Post -

  5. Okay.... when I created the post- I went to the right side of the screen where it says "post tags." I keyed in some tags and then used the "add" button.
    Later, I noticed that there are no tags applied, so I did it again, and still no tags.
    When I go the "post tags" under the Posts menu, I see a "name" box and under it a "description" box. My post title doesn't appear anywhere on the page (not in the right-hand list that says "name, description, slug, post."
    Thanks for your help!

  6. Look at the top of your screen when you have a Post open to edit - click on the Screen Options tab (a bit hard to see) and make sure the Show On Screen section has Post Tags checked.

  7. It does and did previously...

  8. Got it...
    Thanks for your help.

  9. You be welcome & good luck
