The free Tag Groups plugin helps you organize your WordPress tags in groups. It also works with most other flat taxonomies, like WooCommerce product tags.
The plugin comes with three configurable tag clouds where tags are displayed under tabs, in an accordion or sorted by their first letters. Filters and bulk actions make your work with tags much easier, and you can even filter the list of posts in your backend by the group that their tags belong to.
Possible applications are:
- Display your tags grouped by language or by topic.
- Display only specific tags in the tag cloud.
- Change the sorting order in your tag cloud.
- Customize the links, the text or the separator of your tag cloud items.
- Display a tag cloud with the post count in the tags.
- Choose which tags to display in different sections of your blog.
- Easily manage huge amounts of tags or posts in the backend by dividing them into groups so that you can filter them.
- Display with each post a selection of tags that are related to the tags of this post.
The plugin comes with some default templates. You can easily create and upload your own.
Creating and managing groups is just a breeze. Re-sort them with drag and drop. Direct links take you from a group to your tags and posts, filtered by this group.
Assign tags to groups on the default tag screens and edit them without reloading the page. Bulk actions are available to speed up your work. Filter your tags by tag group.
The group menu has a search field so that you can narrow down the list of tag groups. Just start typing the first letters.
Add tag clouds to your posts, pages or widgets with shortcodes. Choose from default themes or make your own.1 Customize the tag cloud with a huge variety of parameters. Show the tags under tabs or in an accordion.
With some skills in CSS, you can do amazing things, like this tag cloud with appended post count for each tag.
You don’t even need to create any group. Let the plugin find all first letters of your tags and sort them by alphabet.
If you are using the Gutenberg editor or WordPress 5.x, you can even configure the tag clouds without touching any code. Instead of adding lists of numbers to your shortcode, you simply choose all applicable options from a menu.

It works, and is very light. Thank you!
So happy to have found this
Have a site I’m redesigning with oodles of tags which were sorted manually (hardcoded in their sidebar template). This plugin is exactly what I needed. It’s now easy to manage tags by group in admin. And with a little CSS TLC, will look great on the front-end! So happy to have found this. Great work!
The absolute tags group plugin!
I am using the plugin for more than a year with no issues. The plugin is free. This should have been a WordPress build-in feature.
Very, very good, thanks!
I was looking for something like your plugin for a long time, thanks! If you continue adding options for presentation of tag (with shortcodes), then it’s gonna be 6 stars. 😉
