Hi! I created several tags so the users have a nice list to choose from when they submit a new listing. However, I noticed when the tag is not currently used for any listing, then it gets deleted after some minutes automatically.
That means, when I create a new tag and attach it to a listing, everything is fine. But when I create a tag and want to motivate/inspire people to add a listing to it to make the site a little bit more versatile, the tags which are not in use yet, just get deleted.
- Create a new tag from the dashboard.
- Go to your list of all tags and see your newly added tag.
- Wait a few minutes.
- See that the tags which are not assigned to any post are deleted.
The tags are removed.
The tags stay there.
I actually don’t know if this is something that happens to tags for standard posts as well, so it’s a WordPress problem or if it just happens for listing tags, but I just noticed it and I don’t like it to be honest and it doesn’t make any sense to me.
If something is unclear please don’t hesitate to contact me.
