Create a new product tag

In the left column of the tags page, you will see the New Tag form.  The Name that you give to the tag is what will be visible on the frontend of your website when customers are navigating by tag or viewing a product page.  The Slug is what will be used in URLs on the frontend of the site when customers are navigating to a tag page.  The slug can only contain letters, numbers, and hyphens.  The Description field is optional.  When you are done, just click the Add new tag button to save the new tag.

Edit an existing product tag

You will see the list of all of your store's product tags just to the right of the new tag form.  To edit an existing product tag, just hover over the name of the tag, and you will see several links appear.  Click on the Edit link as shown below to navigate to the edit tag page.

If you want to delete several product tags at the same time, you can use the Bulk Delete action.  Just check the boxes next the tags that you want to delete and then from the Bulk Actions dropdown select Delete and then click the Apply button as shown below.

In either case, you will be asked to confirm the action before the product tags are permanently deleted from the system.  To proceed with the deletion just click the OK button.
