Everyone pretty much gets the idea behind WordPress Categories, but Tags can be a bit confusing as they are similar in function to Categories. Both can be used to Navigate the WordPress based blog or website. Which makes it difficult to explain the differences to non-techies; so the next time the need to explain WordPress Tags & Categories to a client arises try using these examples:
- Categories are like the Table of Contents in a book, and Tags are the equivalent to the books index.
- Categories are like the drawers in a filing cabinet and tags are the folders in the drawers.
