Both Embedded Tag Thing and Tag Managing Thing have had little updates.
Embedded Tag Thing is now less retarded – it shouldn’t be adding empty tags any more; and if you delete a tag from underneath it, it will display the tag as plain text instead of being broken. Sorry it took so long for me to upload it. Oops.
Tag Managing Thing now has a little button that will remove all of the terms from the current taxonomy which aren’t in use. This is handy if you’ve had Embedded Tag Thing issues.
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.
