Tag Format Converter

I wrote this WordPress plugin to help me when making submissions to social bookmarking sites. I hated having to manually rewrite the tag formats because certain sites insist on using silly rules like spaces with double quotes. Boo-erns to them.

Anyways, figured somebody else may find it useful too!

Let me know if you have any suggestions for how to improve this tool.


Tag Format Converter


  1. Type or paste your comma-separated tags into the first field. Use spaces between multi-word tags, but NO SPACES on either side of the commas.
  2. Click Generate!
  3. You can then copy any of the result tags to use whenever a site requires odd formats.

Here’s a spreadsheet which does the same thing >  Tag Formatter Spreadsheet

    Nice! I was wondering if something like this was available. I can’t udnerstand why some of those sites ask for such ridiculous tag formats. Who the F types normally using spaces and double quotes around different phrases?

    Why can’t the commas have spaces around them?

      Hey B.L,

      It’s just because that’s how I wrote my script. It made it easier for me to parse the string and convert to the different formats. Sorry! Maybe v 2.0 will be more robust 😉
