  2. Go to Appearance and then, Theme File Editor.
  3. Click functions.php
  4. Add the following lines at the very end of your theme’s functions.php then save your changes
function add_categories_to_pages() {
register_taxonomy_for_object_type( 'category', 'page' );
}
add_action( 'init', 'add_categories_to_pages' );
function add_tags_to_pages() {
register_taxonomy_for_object_type( 'post_tag', 'page' );
}
add_action( 'init', 'add_tags_to_pages');
