Insane Politics WordPress Terms

Traffic on Insane Politics started to increase over the last few days, yet, WordPress tags and categories needed maintenance. Clearing up the terms should help navigation.

Duplicates were merged and abandoned categories and tags were cleared. Term Management Tools was the plugin used to merge tags. Tags needing renaming were simply done in the WordPress admin panel. Some slugs needed fixing, and this was done directly in the database.

New WordPress categories were added: Legislative Branch, Executive Branch, and Judicial Branch. Other categories were moved into these parent categories: White House, Congress, etc.

Once the WordPress terms were cleaned up, a navigation menu for the categories was added to the sidebar. The sidebar menu is built from a widget. Select categories are shown in the sidebar which link to pages showing stories for that category. Using the WP Category Stick Posts plugin, the category pages now show select featured articles.

Category linking to the forums still needs work. The political forums are not built out to match the categories. This will be done in the future.
