Use Auto Fill/Complete for Post Tags

  1. Hello, I need to allow my users to enter tags for their post..

    But, I would like it so if the tag already exists, it will Auto Complete/Fill/Suggest the tag for them, this way wrong spellings etc wont make Duplicate tags, yet not actually duplicates.. you know what I mean?

    Pretty much just like on the regular WP Edit post page, you can begin typing a tag, and if it exists, WP will auto suggest it

  2. You would have to add the script which populates the tag field in the post editor, to your form. I'm not sure what script or function WordPress uses to handle tagging in the post editor: no one has ever asked that question here before.

    But basically, you'd have to recreate that functionality by including the script on your form page, and targetting the field where you accept tag input from the user.
