I have a event espresso business plan, and I need to add post_tag to each and every event like categories work in it. Please guide me how to add it.

I found that, in every event at bottom  of page Tag field is available in “Create a post”. Now how to call these tags(using comma  separated tags) on theme ? Could you also tell me where is it saving in DB?

Hi Renu,

A few questions here so bear with me.

Events are not posts, so they cannot have tags currently. We are looking to rectify this in 4.X when we transfer Events over to a Custom post Type, so taxonomies can be used/created for them.

I found that, in every event at bottom of page Tag field is available in “Create a post”.

This feature enables you to create a Post as well as the Event, so that the post can be featured in your blog feed, and that post can have tags etc, but still the Event cannot have tags. Those tags are standard WordPress tags so please see here for more information http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags

Could you also tell me where is it saving in DB?

If you mean the events, in general most of the event data is saved to *_event_details table, where * is your database prefix. Some data is added to other tables. All Event Espresso tables will be *_event_something.
