Ultimate Tag Warrior: Please Read!

Ultimate Tag Warrior is unsupported with WordPress 2.3. WordPress 2.3 does, however, have a thingy for importing UTW tags into WordPress.

You should do that (:

Then, you should have a look at WordPress Things. Some of them cover UTW functionality. There will be a plugin for the UTW template tags.. soon.. which should allow theme stuff to keep on working; but alas, there are still many kinks to iron out. Check back in a week for that one (:

Tag Managing Thing

There’s another Thing for wordpress!

Tag Managing Thing! [Tag Managing Thing Download]

Tag Managing Thing is pretty sweet. It adds a new window to the WordPress admin system which allows you to modify tags (and categories! (and things in any other post-based taxonomies you acquire through other plugins… Oooh! Exciting)).

Tags Terms can have their name and slug changed; and can be deleted. Two pedestrian, but none the less useful bits of functionality.

It’s also possible to split an existing term into a number of new terms; and you can merge existing terms into a single term. Two much more interesting things to be able to do.

Ooh, and this is my favourite. You can change the taxonomy that a term belongs to. Which is to say, you can turn a tag into a category or a category into a tag. (And if you have additional taxonomies for post objects, you can also move terms into and out of those taxonomies as well.)

I think it’s pretty neat.

Ultimate Tag Warrior Bugfix Release

Item the first: If you’re getting 404 errors on your tag pages, try going to the Options > Permalinks page in wp-admin, and click the Update Permalinks button.

Item the second: There’s a bugfix release of UTW. Download Here! It should deal with the problem that contact form plugin thingy people were having – go to the Options > Tags page, and resave your options; then all should be good in the world.

Item the third: I’m looking for beta testers for taggish plugins I’m putting together for WordPress 2.3. If you’d like to beta test, and are using WordPress 2.3, send an email to beta [at] neato [dot] co [dot] nz.

Fabulous.
