Why Organize Terms Into Groups?

Most WordPress sites mix up terms into one big messy group. In most cases, terms should actually be separated by topics: places, people, features, years and more.

Your term however, will become much more useful if you organize them in groups. Imagine a tag cloud where all places appear in a „Places“ group, all names under „Names“ and all years under „Years“. The Tag Groups plugin lets you do exactly that.

The plugin gives you many term displays. You can also customize them, append or prepend something to each tag. You can add separators, choose the link target, set the smallest and the largest font size, display the post count and much more.

Does Tag Groups Only Work With Tags?

No. Tag Groups works also great with most other (flat) taxonomies, such as WooCommerce product tags.

Das Plugin unterstützt keine hierarchischen Taxonomien wie Kategorien.

Does Tag Groups Work with Multilingual Websites?

Yes, this plugin is officially compatible with WPML, the WordPress Multilingual plugin. This means you can use a different tag group name for each language.

  1. Finde das Plugin in der Liste im Backend und installiere es mit einem Klick. Oder lade die ZIP-Datei über das Backend hoch. Oder lade den entpackten Ordner „tag-groups“ in das Verzeichnis „/wp-content/plugins/“ hoch.

  2. Aktiviere das Plugin im „Plugins“-Menü in WordPress.

Das Plugin wird ein neues Menü namens „Tag Groups“ und ein Untermenü „Tag Group Admin“ bei den Beiträgen (abhängig von der gewählten Taxonomie) erstellen, wo du die Schlagwortgruppen findest. Nachdem du ein paar Gruppen erstellt hast, kannst du deine Schlagwörter (oder andere Begriffe) bearbeiten und einer dieser Gruppen zuordnen. Ein Filter und ein Menü für Sammelaktionen stehen auf der Schlagwortseite zur Verfügung, und ebenso findest du einen Filter auf der Seite mit den Beiträgen.

Die Schlagwörterwolke unter Tabs (oder im Akkordeon) können mit einem Shortcode oder einem Gutenberg-Block eingefügt werden. Optionen werden im „Tag Groups“-Hauptmenü aufgelistet.


How Can I Start Using Tag Groups?

Nach der Aktivierung des Plugins hast du die Möglichkeit, von einem Setup-Wizard geführt zu werden.

Zuerst erstellst du Gruppen, die deine Schlagwörter enthalten werden. Dann sortierst du deine Schlagwörter in diese Gruppen. Du kannst später immer wieder zurück kommen, um die Gruppen und Schlagwörter zu verändern. Du brauchst nicht einmal Gruppen, wenn du es vorziehst, deine Schlagwörter nach Alphabet sortiert zu zeigen.

Filter und Mehrfachaktionen erleichtern deine Arbeit mit Schlagwörtern erheblich und du kannst sogar die Liste der Beiträge im Backend nach der Gruppe filtern, zu denen ihre Schlagwörter gehören.

What are Possible Applications of Tag Groups?

  • Zeige deine Schlagwörter gruppiert nach Sprache oder Thema.
  • Erstelle ein alphabetisches Verzeichnis deiner Schlagwörter – etwa so wie ein Telefonbuch für Schlagwörter.
  • Zeige nur Schlagwörter von ausgewählten Gruppen in einer Schlagwortwolke.
  • Bestimme, welche Schlagwörter in den verschiedenen Bereichen deines Blogs dargestellt werden sollen.
  • Ändere die Sortierreihenfolge in deiner Schlagwörterwolke.
  • Passe die Links, den Text, die Schriftgröße oder das Trennzeichen der Elemente in deiner Schlagwörterwolke an.
  • Stelle jedem Schlagwort einen Text oder die Beitragsanzahl voraus oder hintenan.
  • Füge in jeden Beitrag eine Schlagwörterwolke ein, die nur die Schlagwörter dieses Beitrags benutzt.
  • Verwalte mühelos große Mengen an Schlagwörtern oder Beiträgen im Backend, indem du sie in Gruppen unterteilst.
  • Füge den Schlagwörtern eine übergeordnete Ebene hinzu und mache sie hierarchisch.

How Can I Show the Tags of Each Post Sorted into Groups?

Bitte verwende einen der Shortcodes oder Gutenberg-Blöcke, die vom Tag Groups-Plugin bereitgestellt werden. Da wir den Code von Templates und anderen Plugins nicht verändern können, können sie die neue Struktur, in der Schlagwörter in Gruppen organisiert sind, nicht verwenden.

Since the original developer ChattyMango resold the plugin, it's just bullshit. In the design theme "Accordion", the previously neatly and clearly separated keywords are now suddenly and unexpectedly raped by the current development team in such a way that the entries are now displayed as unwanted and thus confusing keyword clouds. The documentation for customizing the free version has been removed by the current developers. ChattyMango had provided a few code snippets in the WP backend to refine the display of the chosen design style a bit. The current developers apparently want to drive the user to buy the premium version for the sake of profit. It is already clear to me that the development of a plugin is a lot of work and that it should also be paid for with the premium version. But I don't need the extensive features of the premium version. But for the free version of the plugin, I would like to get back at least the rudimentary customization options that were previously available. With the takeover and the latest updates, the code has apparently been messed up to such an extent that the plugin is slowing down the website. Loading times of more than 4 seconds are unacceptable with the plug-in enabled. I tried to delete the new version and then install the version 1.4, which was satisfactory at the time. Version 1.4 has been installed and loading times have decreased dramatically. But the messed-up accordion view with the stupid cloud of buzzwords stuck with me. But the messed-up accordion view with the stupid cloud of buzzwords stayed with me. Of course, I can't verify how deep the current version digs into the system. I want the Accordion theme to be able to see the list view again and the loading times to be optimized. In other words, if you manage to screw up a previously unique plugin like that, then you should be able to get rid of the hopelessly screwed up nonsense in the interest of the users. And again provides proper documentation. And above all, the helpful (example) codes for individual customization. Then there are also asterisks again. _________________________________________________________________ Edit: Problem solved After several hours of searching and with a lot of patience, I was now able to solve the problem I described myself and would like to share the solution with interested parties who have the same problem: Navigate to the menus in the WP backend. Find the "MLA Text" menu and open the widget to paste the following code into the text box (only the bold text in the square brackets): '#' [tag_groups_accordion smallest= 14 largest=14 separator=<br/>] '#' Now the keywords embedded in the Accordion template are no longer displayed as a confusing cloud, but as a clean list from each other and, above all, separated from each other. In the documentation designed by the developer, although very extensive, there are some "shortcuts" or .PHP snippets. However, nowhere is it explained where and how to insert the code in order to be able to make such individual adjustments. At least I didn't find them - if these hints were noted somewhere - despite my intensive and attentive reading for self-help. I increase my rating to 3 stars for the user-unfriendly documentary. For the plugin I give (also to myself) 5 stars because it works NOW the way I want it to.

Maybe it's because I have been trying all day to find a plug in to do what I need and have failed but this one has been one of the most frustrating. I read the documentation and it looked like this may work for me. I installed it and ran the setup wizard and hit the Preview and poof a page popped up that looked like I could work with it. It was not the layout I was looking for but it was the best layout I have seen today. So I closed that window and when back to the CP to see if I could make some changes to the layout and got so lost. Could not find my way back and the help and CP navigation is crap. All sorts of stuff that I do not care about or do not need and nothing that would help me. ARG.... I just want to be able to sort products based on the tags they are given.

I'm using the paid version to display posts based on tags selected. I found it simple to use and straightforward. You can get results very quickly with this, and it's impressive. It also looks great. I had a problem with another plugin not working with the Tag Cloud that the Tag Cloud support fixed. This saved me a lot of time and was excellent customer service. I'm so pleased with the results, and I'm delighted I bought this plugin. I can't recommend this enough!
