Directory Tags Menu

Directory Tags

The Directory Tags section is where you can create/edit/delete Tags for your Business Directory. It functions very much like the standard WordPress Tags area with a set of actions that can be performed on each listing.  It looks like this:

To see the actions, you must hover your mouse over the listing to see all available links for use.  Once you do, the actions become visible:

NOTE: The Tags used by Business Directory are NOT the same ones used by your WordPress posts and pages. And similarly, ones you create here can’t see shared by your posts and pages on the site. WordPress uses a “custom post type” to distinguish BD listings from WP pages, so the Tags don’t, and can’t ever, mix.

To create new Tags in Business Directory, first go to the left side section of the Directory Tags page:

Next, you need to enter a Tag name (required) and a slug (value used for the URL when a tag is selected). Slugs should not contain any spaces.

After you have entered your data, click on “Add New Tag” and your new Tag will be in the list.

To modify or update Tags in Business Directory, look on the right side section for the list of existing Tags.

Actions you can perform from here:

  • Edit the Tag (Edit link)
  • Partially Edit the Tag (Quick Edit link, mostly just the title and slug)
  • Delete the Tag (Delete link)
  • View the listings in that Tag (View link)

To delete a Tag, click the Delete link after hovering over the desired Tag with your mouse. Confirm that you wish to delete it, and then select OK. The Tag will be deleted.

You can perform actions on multiple rows by selecting more than one listing, and then picking the operation under “Bulk Actions” and then clicking “Apply”.
