Using tags and categories in a blog

Add tags and categories to a Blog Page to organize your content and help visitors find similar posts.

Formatting tips:

  • Tags must be 80 characters or fewer.
  • Categories must be 25 characters or fewer.
  • Tags and categories are case-sensitive. For example, entering Apples, apples, and APPLES creates three tags or categories.

Step 1 - Go to a Blog Page

In the Home Menu, click Pages, then choose a Blog page from your navigation. 

Note: To learn how to add a Blog Page to your site, visit Blogging with Squarespace.

Step 2 - Edit blog post

Click a post title, then click Edit.

Step 3 - Add tags and categories

In the bottom left corner of the post editor, click the + icon next to either Tags or Categories. Click an existing tag or category, or type in a new one. Existing tags appear in a drop-down as you type.

To remove a tag or category from the post, click the X next to the label.

Step 4 - Manage tags and categories

You can bulk-edit tags and categories in the Advanced tab of Blog Settings. For example, if you want to rename a category from Movie Reviews to Film Reviews, you can bulk-edit the entire category so you don't have to go into every post and rename the category manually.

In the Pages Panel, click your Blog Page. Then click the  to open Blog Settings.

In the Advanced tab, click the tag or category names you'd like to remove or rename. You can also merge tags or categories by selecting the labels you'd like to combine, then clicking Merge.

Category navigation

Certain templates offer a category navigation at the top of the Blog Page, which displays links to the different post categories. Clicking a link filters out every post except the ones in that category.

You can enable category navigation in the following templates: Pacific, Bryler, Charlotte, Fulton, Horizon, and Naomi.
