Tags are basically keywords for each page/article/event you create.

Tags are intended to be words or very short two or three-word phrases. Adding tags that accurately represent a post or page will increase the chance that it will get its due website traffic. To add a new tag, follow this simple instruction.

Note: Your theme must support the description field in order to show it.

The final results should look like this (if your theme supports WordPress tags):

Are the MEC tags, the same as the regular wp post tags? Tags seem to be the same for regular wp posts and MEC events, which means all the wp post tags appear in the MEC search dropdown for tags. Is that expected behaviour? If using tags I want different tags for events from posts.

Hello – Can I setup up searches based on tags. I know I can click on a tag and it will show me all the events with that tag, but can I have a drop down menu with all the tags or a side bar with a list of the tags so they can see the list of tags on any page and click on it to see all the events with that tag?
Also would like to do the same with catagories

I can not seem to find this possibility I have not attached in M.E.C settings I have attached a screenshot of my event. Thank you in advance to all. Maurad
