tag is not working in wordpress like it is supposed to. When I add tag to a custom post type it shows up in tags list and the relationship can be seen in the term_relationships table and the tags are seen in the posts when I edit the page.But the post count for tag remains zero and the link of the tag does not give me the posts related to the tags.For example


does not give me the posts related to this tag.

I have tried this manually as in i have used these also wp_insert_term and wp_set_post_term and the problem is same. this problem is only when I use custom post type.But when I use post type:post.This works perfectly.Is there somethig that I am missing? Thanks in advance

The URL can vary based on your settings. Do you have a category or tag base set? I believe the default URL of mytag would go to mysite.com/mytag. See more at the wordpress codex page on permalinks.

  • the url is working because as I have written above the url is working perfectly for post type post it.I mean when I do site.com./tag/mytag it shows all the post type post related to tags but doesnot show custom post types Jun 18, 2012 at 12:21

  • this is close but not quite what i was looking for the count for the post related to tag doesnot increase in mine.So I don't think it establishes a relation to begin with but the weird thing is the term id and post id both show up in term_relationship but count doesnot increase in term_taxonomy.i have been hung up on this four more than 5 days now but no solution Jun 19, 2012 at 7:22
