Automatically Add Existing Terms

This Auto Terms feature can scan your content and automatically assign existing terms. For example, you have a term called “WordPress”. Auto Terms can analyze your posts and when it finds the word “WordPress”, it can add that term to your post.

Here’s an example of how it works:

  • You add “Software” to your list of “Tags”.
  • If your post content or title contains the word “Software”, then TaxoPress will automatically add “Software” as a term for this post.

Step #1. Enable Auto Terms

  • Go to TaxoPress > Auto Terms in your WordPress admin menu.
  • Choose the taxonomy you want to use with Auto Terms. In the image below, I’ve chosen “Tags”.
  • Choose the post types you want to use with this feature. In the image below, I’ve chosen “Posts”.
Choose the post types you want to use with Auto Terms
  • You will find the other key setting in the “Existing taxonomy terms” setting. You need to choose whether to use all the terms in your taxonomy, or only a select group. If you choose to use all the terms, test carefully as this process may slow your site if you have 10,000’s terms or if you have a slow server.

  • If you set the “Use only some terms in the selected taxonomy” option, then TaxoPress will ask you to choose which terms will be used with the Auto Terms feature. Another option for you is to set the “Use all the terms in the selected taxonomy”.
TaxoPress will ask you to choose which terms will be used with the Auto Terms feature.

Step #2. Test the Auto Terms system

  • Write a new post. Include at least one of the keywords that exist as terms on your site. In the image below, the post includes “WordPress” and “CMS”.
  • Publish the post.
  • Your keywords will automatically be added to the Tags box.
