Tags in WordPress provides you an easy way for grouping related posts together in your blog or website. You can show it in menus, after posts, in a tag cloud widget etc. By default WordPress allows authors to add as many tags they want to add in their posts.
In this lesson we will show you how to easily set maximum number of tags for posts in your WordPress site.
WP Limit Tags is the new WordPress plugin that simply allows you to limit tags for posts and custom post types. You can set the maximum number of tags which are allowed to be assigned to posts and select what post types have restricted tag assignment.
Start by installing ‘WP Limit Tags’ plugin in WordPress
Upon activation, visit your admin area dashboard Settings -> WP Limit Tags screen and type in the number of tags you want to allow for each post or custom post type.
The page also provides you checkbox option to select which posts types tag limiting should be activated on.
Finally save changes and you are done. Now on post edit screen, for those posts activated, you will not be allowed to add more than allowed number of tags.
