More Information More Information

If you set IDs of an existing tag in the array, WordPress assigns the existing tag.

If you pass text in the array, WP will create a tag if it doesn’t exist and assigns it to the post

You can mix text and IDs. The text will create a term, if it not exists, the ID will be used for an existing tag – both get assigned to the post.
