Tags are the primary categorization method for organizing and filtering content and your posts or pages. You may consider these as labels that are put on products within convenience stores to give more information about the product itself. They are powerful and dynamic systematics responsible for sorting your content, control its design, and gives a prerequisite for automation. In this tutorial, we are going to go over the process of editing, creating, and deleting tags on your Ghost blogging platform. Let’s get started!
To access the "Tags" section where you can manage all of the tags, please log into your Ghost’s admin dashboard. You can do so by typing your domain name followed by /ghost. For example:
After logging in, please select the “Tags” option in the left-hand sidebar.
When selected, all of your tags are displayed in the middle section of the screen. There are two tag types:
In addition to the above types, Ghost has a concept of “Primary tags”. This is done for convenience purposes as typically, the first tag you add to a post or page is the most significant, and there are times when you would like to return this tag individually without the rest included.
On the top right corner of the screen, you can see the Public tags“ and the “Internal tags” buttons.
Based on the information provided above, please select the tab corresponding to the tag you want to add.
To add a new tag, please press the “New tag” button located on the top right corner of the page.
Once you land on the “New tag” page, you can see two sections in the middle - the “Basic Settings” section and the “Meta Data” section. Let’s go over all the options under the “Basic Settings" first.
After you are done setting up the tag itself, you can proceed to the next section, which is the “Meta Data” section, containing options useful for search engines.
If you are happy with the setup of your new tag, please press the blue “Save” button located on the top side of the page.
You know that the tag has been saved for sure after the blue “Save” button turns green.
Lastly, at the bottom of the screen, you can see an option to delete the tag if you are not happy with how it turned out.
This is done by clicking the “Delete tag” button located on the bottom left side of the page.
To edit existing tags, please go back to the “Tags” page by clicking on the “Tags” option from the sidebar menu located on the left side of the screen.
In our case, we are editing the tag, which we created earlier in this tutorial called “armada-tutorials”. To start editing the tag, please select it from the tag list in the middle.
Clicking on a tag redirects you to a very similar page. You can adjust the name, change the slug, change the description, and the metadata of the tag using the same means, which we described earlier. After you have made your alterations, please click the blue “Save” save button on the top of the page.
Once again, you know that the changes have been accepted when the “Save” button turns green!
If you wish to delete the tag you chose, you can do so using the “Delete tag” button located on the bottom left side of the screen.
