Category to Pages WUD

By default both categories and tags are only limited to posts, so when you create a new page in WordPress, you will notice that there is no option to add categories or tags to your WordPress page.
In this manual we will show you how to add tags and categories for WordPress pages.

Please notice that all the settings explained on this page are related to the WordPress pages and not to WordPress posts!

Settings page

Administration page -> Cat to Page WUD

Enable categories (1) and/or tags (2) for pages.

If use unique page categories/tags (3) is disabled, it will use the same categories and tags for pages as it is for posts.
If s (3) enabled it use unique categories/tags for pages only!
Please notice the difference between WordPress and Unique Page URL’s:

WordPress :

Unique Page :

Show the category/tag Title on the page(s) (4).
If Show (4) is enabled, this will show the category/tag title with link below the page title.
Place this info: just below the Title or on top of the page content (some themes prefer on top of the page content).
You can adjust the Font Size and choose from some Font Family’s.

New: H1 to H3 selection instead font-size only.

Show the page categories and tags in a widget (5)!
Show Category and Tag pages: if off it wil show only the categories and tags.
Show a button to display the pages : instead directly the page links.
Quantity pages to display (max.: 50): from 5 to 50 pages.
Show only Parent Categories: if disabled it shows pages from the child (sub) categories together with the Parent categories.

Use Excerpts for pages (6) , if enabled it shows excerpts instead full pages in the archive pages and it enable the possibility to add a manual entered excerpt.
If no manual entered excerpt is found, it will use the page content with the quantity words given in the setting: Excerpt length in words.

Disable ‘Page Category/tag’ in the URL (7), When Categories/Tags are not unique and WordPress permalink is set to: /%category%/%postname%/
If activated: You can edit the page URL (WordPress standard).
If not activated: A page URL name contains the hard coded page category and is not Editable.

Enable Page & Post Hatom data for Google (8),Hatom: Fixes errors in Google Webmaster Tools
If activated: It wil display (in hidden format) Hatom data to Google.
Hatom data = post/page title, date last updated and author vcard.
If not activated: Category to Page WUD does not force the hidden Hatom data.

Custom Post Type (9)
If activated: Custom post type will be available in our shortcode or widget results.
If not activated: Custom Post types are not included in our shortcode or widget results (WordPress standard).
Custom Post Types = Content types that look and function like Posts and Pages, but in their own separate areas.
So if you have created your own Custom Post type, named for example ‘newbie‘, than you can enter here this name.
Once saved the results of our shortcode or widgets, will be included this ‘newbie‘.
