Occasionally, you may need to delete tags within your WordPress site. (Looking for hosting? We're recommended by BoldGrid as a top WordPress Hosting provider!) The following tutorial will show you how to delete single or multiple tags in the WordPress Administrator.

How to Delete Tags

Delete Multiple Tags

  1. Login to the WordPress Administrator
  2. Delete multiple tags

    Click on check box for each tag you wish to delete

  3. Click on the drop-down arrow of the button labeled Bulk Actions.
  4. Click on Delete, then click on Apply

Delete a Single Tag

  1. Login to the WordPress Administrator
  2. Delete single tag

    Hover over the name of the tag and you will see a pop up menu

  3. Click on Delete to remove that particular tag

If you use quick edit to delete, the tag will immediately be removed from the tag list. Make sure you exercise caution when deleting tags as barring a restoration of a backup copy of your WordPress site, you will not be able to recover them.
