DIY Tagging Instructions
Instructions for DIY Tagging
2.Write a Post
You will see on the right-hand side of the admin screen the ‘Post Tags’ box is where you will include the tags. You can choose your blog tags from the Day of DH list, which includes tags about:
What activity you are doing
When you are doing it
Where you are doing it.
Be sure and include the ‘DDH-‘ before your tag to identify it with the official list. If you wish to utilise your own personal tags alongside the DDH tags, please leave off the DDH- to distinguish them from the official tags.
Below is a shot of the Post area in your wordpress blog. Just type in your tag!
