Connect Your WordPress Terms with the New “Linked Terms” Feature

now has a new feature called “”. This feature allows you to connect terms. When the main term is added to a post, the will be added also.

For sites with a lot of terms, this feature makes it easier and quicker for your users to add the correct terms. For example, if you add the term “WordPress” to your posts, TaxoPress can automatically add Linked Terms that include “CMS”, “website”, and “website design”.


How to Use Linked Terms

I'll show you an example of how this Linked Terms feature works. Imagine you have four terms: “Apple”, “Honeycrisp”, “Red Delicious”, and “Golden Delicious”.

You can edit the “Apple” term, and select the other three terms as “Linked Terms”. In the image below, you can see I've added “Honeycrisp”, “Red Delicious”, and “Golden Delicious”.

Linked Terms in TaxoPress

Now, whenever the term “Apples” is added to a post, TaxoPress will automatically add the other terms too. In this screenshot, I've written a post about fruit and have added the term “Apples”.

Adding a single Linked Term in TaxoPress

When I save the post and refresh the page, all three Linked Terms have been added to the post:

TaxoPress automatically adds multiple Linked Terms

Using Linked Terms Automatically

This new feature works with the “Auto Terms” feature in TaxoPress. So if you have the word “Apples” in any of your posts, can scan those posts and add all your linked terms.


What’s the Difference Between Linked Terms and Synonyms?

We did just release another new TaxoPress feature called “Synonyms“. Both of these new features allow you to have multiple words associated with a single term. Here are the differences between the two features:

  • : The extra words are not real terms. And those extra words can only be added to one term. For example, if your main term is “Apples” and the synonym is “Honeycrisp”, that synonym will not exist anywhere on your site. It will not have an archive page and users will be able to add it as a term.
Term Synonyms
  • Linked Terms: The extra words are real terms. And those extra words can be added to as many terms as you want. For example, if your main term is “Apples” and the linked term is “Honeycrisp”, that linked term will have an archive page and users will be able to add it as a term.
