Synonyms is a feature in TaxoPress Pro that allows you to have multiple words associated with a single term. If TaxoPress scans your content and finds a synonym, it will act as if it has found the main term.

How to add Synonyms #

Synonyms will be available on each term screen. In the screenshot below, the main name for the term is “Apple”. The synonyms are “Apples”, “Golden Delicious”, “Granny Smith”, “Pink Lady”, “Honeycrisp”, “Red Delicious”, “Braeburn” and “Gravenstein”.

Examples of using Term Synonyms #

Term Synonyms currently works with two key features of TaxoPress: Auto Terms and Auto Links.

With Auto Terms, TaxoPress will add the original term to the post if it finds a synonym in the content. So if you have “Apples”, “Golden Delicious” or “Granny Smith” in your post content, TaxoPress will add the term “Apple” to your post.

With Auto Links, there is a setting to enable the use of synonyms. If you check the box in the screenshot below, TaxoPress will add links to any synonyms in your post. So if you have “Apples”, “Golden Delicious” and “Granny Smith” in your post content, all of those words will be linked to the archive page for “Apple”.

Synonyms are unique #

It’s not possible to add a synonym to more than one term. If you attempt to add a synonym that already exists, you’ll see this message: “Duplicate synonyms found. apples is already added to another term.”
