en WordPress.com Forums › Support WordPress url for tag and category pages Author Posts November 28, 2011 at 2:33 pm #762909 esapcoccamachoMember Hi, I’m use to wordpress.org and can’t seem to find the answers to my wordpress.com questions. With wordpress.org, if I want to have an author’s page or page featuring all categories or all tags, I can do this by creating a template. For WordPress.com, I could create a page called ‘Archives’ and use short codes. How do you do this for tags, authors, categories? Without access to the template pages, can this be done? So, I want to be able to go to myblog.wordpress.com/tag and see all tags ditto for authors and categories The blog I need help with is growerssupply.wordpress.com.

We cannot edit templates and themes on free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we cannot change permalink structure. The only shortcodes we can use are found here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/shortcodes/ The format for Categories URLs is: http://NAMEOFBLOG.wordpress.com/category/NAMEOFCATEGORY/ The format for Tags URLs is: http://NAMEOFBLOG.wordpress.com/tag/NAMEOFTAG/ November 28, 2011 at 5:48 pm #763237 esapcoccamachoMember Hi, thanks for your tips. The blog is currently set to private viewing as I work on the template. I understand this: http://NAMEOFBLOG.wordpress.com/tag/NAMEOFTAG/ So there is no way to do this: http://NAMEOFBLOG.wordpress.com/tag/ Have that page show all tags? That’s odd, because there is a short code for showing the archive. Why not shortcode for tags, categories and authors? thanks!
