    Regarding tags. In the past when I created a post, in the creation phase I was asked to tag and categorize..Now I don’t have the option of adding tags, only categories. I have been using the theme MistyLook, and I am aware there is an update now available to MistyLake, is this a mandatory upgrade, and is this why I am now no longer seeing the option to ad tags like I used to. I would also like to know if it is possible to insert a pdf file that is already open, in other words, not a link..
    Thanks in advance for any help.
    Cheers Marty.. my blog is entitled http://www.salobrena.wordpress.com

    The blog I need help with is salobrena.wordpress.com.

    No, PDFs are always simple text links. If you want it to display, you’ll have to use slideshare or something like that.

    “Now I don’t have the option of adding tags, only categories”.
    Are you talking about Posts > Add New (dashboard sidebar) or about New Post (right side of grey admin bar)?

    “is this a mandatory upgrade”?
    No. MIstyLook has become “retired”. Retired means no longer available in newly created blogs, but still available in blogs created before the introduction of Misty Lake.

    ” I would also like to know if it is possible to insert a pdf file that is already open”.
    You can do it via Scribd:

    Firstly, thanks all..
    Justpi, when I used to create a post, it gave me the option of adding a tag and a category for the post..it now only offers me the ability to add a category. I would like to add tags.

    thanks M

    You’re welcome – but I have to repeat the question: are you talking about creating a post via Posts > Add New (dashboard sidebar) or via New Post (right side of grey admin bar)?

    You speak Chinese beautifully..lol I will try and answer this.. I use the left hand column entitled Posts, in that menu are ALL POSTS, ADD NEW, CATEGORIES, TAGS AND COPY A POST.
    When I choose ADD NEW to create a post, there is no option to add a tag to the post, only the ability to add a category.

    Cheers and thanks for your attention.

    When you go to Posts > Add New, or when you edit an already published post, you should see (among other things) the Category module and the Tags module. If you’re not seeing the Tags module, click Screen Options (top right) to activate it.
