Tutorial on categories and WordPress tags
Categories and tags are used to organize the content of your website. Ideally, every article you write corresponds to one category, but it can contain several tags.
By default, WordPress creates a category page directory where all messages belonging to a particular category are listed. WordPress also creates tag pages that list publications in a particular category.
By default, there are no tags for pages and no categories for pages. However, you can find plugins that allow tags for pages and categories for pages.
You can manage WordPress categories and tags by hovering over the "Posts" menu item in your admin area, and then clicking Categories or Tags.
Once in the Categories or Tags management area, you can create and delete categories or tags. You can change their "slug", which is just a funny name for the URL where they are found. You can also add a description. Descriptions are used by some themes, but not all. So there is a chance that you will add a description and no one will ever see it.
You will also be able to create categories and tags on the publication creation page. When you create a post, you will see a Meta Box Categories and Meta Box Tags on the right side of the page (you may have to scroll down to see them).
To assign a category to a message, simply click on the box next to the one you want. If the one you want is not there, you can create one.
To assign a tag to an article, simply type the tag in the Meta Box Tag and you will be shown suggestions for tags that you have already created or you can create a new one. Be careful not to create too many tags for your site. The tags are intended to organize the content of your site if you have too many tags, your content is actually less organized.
