Frequently Asked Questions About Importing WordPress Categories and Tags

What is the difference between categories and tags?

They're both used to classify posts, hence the term "taxonomies". The difference is that categories are generally used to group posts, while tags are used to describe them. In either case, both help you organize your posts.

How does my category and tag data need to be structured?

It doesn't matter. WP All Import's Drag & Drop interface allows you to map any incoming data elements to any category or tag fields, so there's no need to organize your data beforehand. You can even modify your data as part of the import process.

Do I have to use a separate import for my WordPress categories and tags? How do I link my posts to my taxonomies?

It's up to you. When importing posts, WP All Import can automatically match to existing terms and create new ones if necessary. To import term meta and images, you'll need a dedicated import.

What if my import CSV doesn't match the WordPress categories and tags on my site?

Let's assume that your import data has products tagged 'Kids' but you want them to be tagged 'Children' to match your site. Just create a mapping rule and WP All Import will automatically process your data during the import.

How to export categories or tags in WordPress?

Navigate to All Export › New Export. Choose Taxonomies as your export post type and select the taxonomy that you want to export. User our Drag and Drop interface to configure your export columns, then run the export and download your file.

How to migrate WordPress categories or tags to another website?

Perform a standard export for the categories and tags that you want to migrate. Make sure to download the Bundle option for this export. On the import site, WP All Import will use the instructions in the bundle file to complete the migration.
