I'm still looking for this, surely the problems must have been solved by now?

I'm one of the users who had the problem Lorelle mentioned. I didn't realize it would simply dump my categories, and having about 600 posts, it took forever to restore an old copy of my structure. I don't understand why they didn't make an option to simply mirror the category structure to tags. Anyone know of a plug-in that does this? I'm surprised that I've yet to come across one.

Thanks for pointing that out Daryl, i wouldn't have realized it was part of core.

Can anyone post the download link?

Just a warning, hopefully not a little late. A lot of people are confused and angry that the posts are taken out of their category during the conversion, and the tag added. The post drops into the default category for your blog. If it doesn't have a backup category, you have to track down the post(s) and edit them to add them back into a post category. Having an "importer" to convert categories to tags is nice, but I think they fell down on the job by not allowing us the ability to also put those posts into a specific category before dumping them out into "uncategorized". Not an issue for 3-5 posts, but for those who jumped and found 100 or more posts category-less, and having to edit them all to put them into a category - there are some upset WordPress users.

Daryl - Wow... I read it, but I hadn't noticed it in my 2.3 install... Thanks. Now I am going to go hide from the shame...

Um, I think you didn't read his whole post. It's *in* 2.3. You go to the /wp-admin backend URL login and look at the Manage menu item. One of the options under Import is the Category to Tags conversion. Personally, I'm just waiting for MarsEdit to support tagging for wordpress as well as categories !
