First Steps

If you previously had installed the free Tag Groups plugin, all settings and groups will be carried over to the premium plugin. If you start with a fresh installation of Tag Groups Premium, we recommend to follow these steps:

1. Select the taxonomy

Go to the “Taxonomies” page in the “Tag Groups” settings.

There you select the taxonomy (that is the “tag type”) that you want to organize under groups. In most cases you keep “Tags” (post_tag), but in some cases it might be “Product Tags” (product_tag) or others.

Only non-hierarchical taxonomies (such as tags or product tags) are fully supported, but you can also experiment with category-type of taxonomies.

2. Create some tag groups

Depending on the chosen taxonomy, a new submenu and page appears next to the submenu of the corresponding tags, called “Tag Groups”. By default it is located under “Posts”, in the case of “Product Tags” it is located under “Products”. You can simply navigate there by clicking on the icon next to the chosen taxonomy name.

On the “Tag Groups” page you create the groups you need. You can return any time later to make changes.

3. Assign tags to these groups

Then go to the tags (or product tags, or others) and assign them to these groups as needed.

That’s all to get started.

You can now display the tags in tag clouds or you enable the meta box in the settings so that you can work with the tags on the post edit screen.
