Frequently Asked Questions About How to Export WordPress Categories and Tags

What is the difference between categories and tags?

Categories and tags are both used to classify posts. Categories are mainly used to group posts, while tags are used more to describe them. Both categories and tags are generally referred to as "taxonomies."

What types of files can I export WordPress categories and tags to?

WP All Export can create Excel files, custom XML feeds, and CSVs with any delimiter. Using our Drag & Drop interface, you can create any kind of file layout. You can even modify the data while exporting it!

Can I export categories and tags from other plugins or WooCommerce extensions?

Yes. Our plugin automatically detects custom taxonomies and custom term meta added by plugins and WooCommerce extensions. If you run into something that our plugin doesn't recognize, just contact our support staff.

Can I export WordPress posts and the categories they are related to?

Absolutely. There are two ways to export taxonomies. You can export posts and their categories. Or you can export taxonomies and their term meta on their own. WP All Export supports both tasks with the same easy-to-use, Drag & Drop interface.

How to import WordPress categories or tags?

Navigate to All Import -> New Import. Choose the method for loading your data and the file that you would like to import. Select Taxonomies as your import type and choose the specific taxonomy that you are targeting (e.g., Product categories). Then just configure and run your import.

How to migrate WordPress categories or tags to another website?

First, export the categories or tags that you wish to migrate. When the export is complete, download the Bundle option, which contains an import template in addition to the export data. WP All Import will use that file to automatically complete the migration.
