Just a quick update on something that I wanted to do for quite a while now – I’ve joined the display of tags and categories. They are still separated in the back-end for me to manage the posts easier. I just figured out that for site visitors there’s no practical difference, and thus using two user interface elements where one can do the job is not ideal. The code snippet that helped me do that was borrowed (and slightly modified) from this Codex page. The only two change that I did were:
- Skip the General category (or All, as it’s labeled in this case), since all posts belong to it anyway.
- Skip post format taxonomy (as those are already encoded with post styling – colors and titles).
I’ve also thrown a copyright into the footer and a small welcome box to the sidebar, but those are just cosmetics.
