Does WordPress have the concept of tag synonyms (like on Stack Exchange)? I would like to be able to link two tags (e.g., math and mathematics) on WordPress in ways similar to what we can do on Stack Exchange.

No, not really.

That's not to say that there isn't a plugin which might do what you want. (Only applies to self-hosted WordPress sites, though.)

  • Hmm, I tried merging tags, but usually I end up with an error message informing me that such a tag already exists... Is there something specific that I need to do to merge tags?

  • It's possible I'm misremembering and that I had a plugin that would allow me to merge tags in a self-hosted WordPress installation. I'll remove that bit until I can confirm it.
