IMPORTER: Tags that were deleted on the import source site are imported to Dreamwidth.

Issue
If you delete tags on a journal on another service and then import from that journal to Dreamwidth, deleted tags may be imported.

Background
This is typically caused by the tags being deleted from the manage tags page but still persisting on some individual entries.

Workaround
You can manually delete the unwanted tags on Dreamwidth after importing.
  • Go to the Manage Tags page.
  • Select the tag or tags you wish to remove.
  • Use the 'Remove selected tag(s)' button to delete.


This should delete the tags from all the individual entries as well as the official tags list.

Alternatively, you may use a client that supports tag management.
