Drupal 7.

We want to remove tags (of Tags vocabulary) automatically when all pages referring to this tag are removed.

Is there a module for this?

1 Answer 1


There are a couple of modules that might help:

  • Taxonomy Orphanage (specifically the cron interface)

    This module provides interfaces (drush, cron, admin form) for removing orphaned taxonomy term references from entities.

  • Field reference delete (sandbox only)

    This module removes references to a deleted entity from fields stored in an SQL database. It exists to prevent stale references to non-existent content from causing unexpected problems (for example, when the referencing content is being displayed).
