    So I’ve been reading a WordPress books (2 actually) making sure I understand how tags work and the one guy said to never put a CATEGORY in a TAG field.

    So what are OUR categories?

    WordPress started as a blogging platform so the category would be the category a blog post was posted under. I currently only have two Categories for the site: 1) “Recipe Swap News & Updates” 2) Uncategorized

    For most of our purposes here (unless you or anyone else wants to do blog posts) category would be the forum that you are posting in e.g. “The Recipe Swap”. I’m not sure what the context was but most likely the guy is saying that wrt SEO best practices. This is for getting content indexed better on search engines. That is fine but I’m not too concerned with it. For usability for our users doing searches, the tags can be helpful for both on site searches and for off site/search engine searches.
