Adding Tags to the Glossary Term

Back to User Guide

The eCommerce edition of the WordPress Glossary plugin supports the addition of term tags for each Glossary term.

Why should I use term tags?

There are many reasons to use term tags, especially if you have a big glossary with lots of terms:

  • Firstly, they make it easier for your users to navigate between your glossary terms and find what they need.
  • They can be used as traffic boosters given that you select them based on SEO reasons.
  • Using shortcodes, they can be utilized to create several glossaries for different types of audience which may be using your website.

How do I add tags to my glossary terms?

Adding term tags is easy and is done from the tags metabox in the Term page while in edit mode, as shown in the image below:
