We first launched TaxoPress because there was a gap in the market. There were no good WordPress plugins to help you organize and categorize your content.
The only existing plugin I could find was called “Tag Groups, which had been created by a developer named Christoph Amthor. This was a really useful plugin that allows you to display and filter content based on taxonomy terms.
A few weeks ago, I was talking with Christoph and he said he was ready to move on from Tag Groups. Christoph published a post with his reasons and some background details.
Since the purchase, we’ve made some key changes to Tag Groups and TaxoPress:
- Moved the Tag Groups plugin to the TaxoPress website. This ended up being a big undertaking. Christoph sold the plugin via the Freemius platform. For European companies, there are some advantages to Freemius, but most of those didn’t apply to us as a US-based company. The code was deeply entangled with Freemius, so we had to rip out a lot of code.
- Launched a new site design here at TaxoPress, using Gutenberg blocks and the Kadence theme.
- Updated all the Tag Groups documentation.
- Added a new demo site for Tag Groups.
This last place is probably the best place to see what Tag Groups can do. You can create Tag Clouds like this one with WooCommerce products:
You can use the Tag Clouds plugin to create a Shuffle Box like this example below:
You can also use the Toggle Post Filter option to create lists of posts like the one in this example:
