Configuring Tags

Updated on August 16, 2017

WordPress tags provide a useful way to group related posts together and to tell readers what a post is about. Also, with tags it’s easier for visitors to find your content. Tags are similar to categories, but they are generally used to describe your post in more detail. The use of tags is completely optional.

Example: If you have a clothing shop website, you would create tags like shoes, dresses, men, women, etc

In Jupiter, tags are available for the one post type: Posts.
