I want to allow commas in tag names? For example,
"hello, world" or
"portland, or" but Wordpress keeps separating them. I can do it from the categories page:
And it shows up fine. But anything added from the posts sidebar does not show up ok here:
There is some discussion on it here: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/14691 but looks like it may not get solved, at least for a while.
In the meantime, I'm looking for an easier solution than adding categories from the categories page.
I've tried searching plugins, and didn't see any that would be helpful. There are a few that deal with replacing commas with other characters when displaying a list of categories, or tags, but I don't see any plugins that allow the user to replace the default separator.
I don't care if I have to patch the core myself. Ideally I could write a plugin, but after looking through some of the code I can't figure out where this gets handled.
