How to link Authors, Categories and Tags to your WordPress Blog posts

If you are importing your Wordpress blog posts with their authors / categories / tags, you can follow our guidance below to make sure Webflow links your blog posts with their authors, categories and tags.

STEP 1: Create collections in Webflow for categories / tags / authors

In Webflow, you will need to create a separate collection for:

  • authors

  • tags

  • categories

if you are migrating these to Webflow, in addition to your blog posts content.

It would look like this:

You can name your collections as you wish, you do not have to name them as per the example above :)

STEP 2 Create reference fields in Webflow for categories / tags / authors

In your Webflow blog posts collection settings, you will need to create a reference field for authors, for collections, for tags.

  • For authors, a single reference field is usually used (if you have one author per blog post)

  • For categories and tags, a multi-reference field is recommended, if you have several categories / tags per blog post.

It would look like this:

STEP 3 Map your collections & Fields in your PowerImporter migration setup

In PowerImporter, once you have created your WordPress to Webflow migration:

In Step 3 Collections: Map your authors, categories and tags

In Step 4 Fields: Map your reference fields to your WordPress authors, categories and tags.

It would look like this:

That's it! You can Test&Review your migration before running it, and check that your blog posts are correctly linked to the authors / categories / tags that you had in WordPress.
