Basic Taxonomies

Categories and Tags


If you write about a variety of subjects, categories can help your readers find the posts that are most relevant to them. For instance, if you run a consulting business, you may want some of your posts to reflect work you’ve done with previous clients, while having other posts act as informational resources. In this particular case, you can set up 2 categories: one labeled Projects and another labeled Resources. You’d then place your posts in their respective categories.

Categories are accessible from the post editor. There you can create new categories and assign them to your posts.

Tags, on the other hand, allow you to label your posts with relevant topics. For instance, within one of your resource posts you may choose to write about a set of project management tools. While you can certainly create a new category called “Project Management Tools,” you may not plan to write about the topic often enough to justify giving it a dedicated category. Instead, you may want to tag your post with several topics that exists within the post; e.g. project management tools, communication, time tracking, etc.

What’s great about tags is that they are searchable and provide your users another way to find content on your site. Anyone searching for “project management tools” will be able to locate any posts you’ve tagged with those words!


About Us

We are a small but high-volume 501c3 nonprofit that specializes in feral cat TNR (trap, neuter, return). Spaying and neutering of feral cats is the humane way to help prevent overpopulation. Unaltered males will fight and get injuries and females can have up to four litters a year, and when not getting pregnant, increase their chances of getting pyometra every heat cycle they go through, which is a painful infection in the uterus that often leads to death.
