5156 Ability to easily add tags to posts using a list of existing tags... andrewflanagan anonymous "I love the new built-in tagging in 2.3. One of the things that I thought would be helpful is to have a list of tags displayed for you so that you can just click on them and add them to the list rather than always having to type them. I make typos and I'm sure others do. At the same time, I have at least a SOMEWHAT limited number of tags (under 100) so this functionality seems useful.
Here's what I did to make this work on my site with Wordpress 2.3.
In the file wp-admin/edit-form-advanced.php, insert the following: (between line 161 and 162)
==== begin code ====
$tags = (array) get_terms('post_tag', $args);
foreach ($tags as $tag)
$output .= ""name.""')\"">"".$tag->name."","";
$output = substr($output, 0, strlen($output) - 1);
$output .= """";
==== end code ====
