How to Add a Tag to a Menu in WordPress

Tagging in WordPress.

Tags are a way to group similar kinds of content and help your visitor to navigate your blog or site. They are meant to be used less broadly than categories that help your visitors even more in their navigation on your blog or site. If you wrote a book review, for example, you can add that review to the category ‘book reviews’ and then tag it with the writer, the title, the kind of literature, etc. Tag posts and pages and add them to your menu(s). In the following tutorial, we show you how to do this. If you want to know how you can add a category to a menu, click here. If you don’t know how to create a menu, click here.
