You can create tags using the WordPress REST API by sending a POST request to the following endpoint:


To create a tag, you need to include the following information in the request body:

  • name: the name of the tag (required)
  • description: a description of the tag (optional)

Here’s an example of how to create a tag using the WordPress REST API in JavaScript:

fetch('/wp-json/wp/v2/tags', {
  method: 'POST',
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization': 'Bearer <your access token>'
  body: JSON.stringify({
    name: 'My New Tag',
    description: 'This is a new tag created using the WordPress REST API'
  .then(response => response.json())
  .then(data => console.log(data))
  .catch(error => console.error(error));

In this example, replace <your access token> with a valid access token for the WordPress REST API. This token can be obtained by logging in to WordPress and visiting the “Applications” page under the “Users” menu. You can generate a new token and specify its permissions there.

Note that you may need to adjust the headers or other settings in the fetch call depending on your specific use case.
