Mystery of the Missing Tags

I have noticed this before, but did not have the patience to blog about it. During WordPress tag searches (<tag>), I have noticed that the tags mentioned below the posts are actually the ‘Categories’ under which I had filed my post. So, tags got replaced by categories. I don’t know whether this happens to other WordPress bloggers or not and, to be frank, only noticed this when I was searching for posts having tags similar to what I had used. Anyway, here’s what I saw when I searched for tag Excerpts following my previous post:

wordpress tag

The so called tags over there are actually the categories and the actual tags are missing.

Four hours later:

wordpress tag 2

This time, some of the tags (which are actually categories. Sigh!) have gone missing. I Wonder what happened to them. Has any one else faced similar problems at WordPress?

    Mebbe this can clear up your dilemma.

    There’s no dilemma here…it’s an error with wordpress.

    I think some of the older stuff got mixed up when they moved categories to tags. Check the WP blog post here
