BoardTracker Thread Tags Mod - ***version 2.1***

This easy to install mod adds a complete thread tagging and tag search system to your board. Tags are displayed with the thread, similar to the tagging and tag search often used on blogs, and link to a tag search system on your board which is powered by boardtracker. (meaning no search load on your servers!)

Tag search and tag results are fully integrated with your board, similar to our other board search mods.

New in version 2.1:

Locally cached tagclouds updated by vb cron
Full css customization of tagclouds on any vb page
Restrict tagging to certain usergroups
Disallow tagging in specific forums
Tag posting uses the standard vb 'censorwords' to block posting of innappropriate words
Tag search uses the standard search 'badwords' list


Advanced tag search options include:

Search tags by user
Search tags by forum and related forums
Search by boardtracker category
Search tags on all boards in boardtracker (optional)
Restrict search by date range
Tag cloud and 'related tags' cloud on search results - fully customizable!
Mod_rewrite option for tag links
RSS feed for tag searches
Search tags on a single or multiple specific boards you define thereby allowing you to create traffic trading rings with other board owners or just within your own boards if you have more than one.
Many options to play with the in admin panel!

If your board is not yet indexed by BoardTracker, make sure to submit it!

Tags created are indexed and searchable on boardtracker search engine also and can appear in various boardtracker tag clouds bringing you more traffic!

Once you have the mod installed and your users have started tagging, you will be able to add tag clouds to any page on your board - just copy/paste the following onto any vb page..


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Or even easier, just paste the following line onto any vb page and wrap it in whatever html you like..

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


You can also add your tag cloud to any site with this simple bit of html/js.

You can see an example of the tag search on our demo forums (using tag results from another board just for example since there are no real threads/tags there)

Also see here the advanced tag search demo.

For support you can post here or on boardtracker support forums.

To upgrade from the last version just install the product in the usual way, upload the files and then go through the template edits as described in the included README file. There are additional template edits and also modified (simplified) edits to the previous versions template edits so you should remove the old ones and add these although the old ones will still work as long as the additional new edits are also done.

Make sure to activate the 'BT Tag Cloud Cache' sheduled task once everything else is done (scripts uploaded etc) - requires cURL which most people have already but if you dont have then just use the standard html/js version of the tagclouds and leave the scheduled task inactive.

Also there is a vb3.5 version here.



updates:
v2.1.3 - fix to forum/usergroup restriction process - reinstall the product file to upgrade.
v2.1.2 - fix to bt_cloud.php cron script so to upgrade you only need to upload that file to the vb cron directory.
v2.1.1 - minor fix to the font-size setting in tags_default.css so to upgrade you only need to upload that file.
v2.1 - added locally cached tag clouds with cron, usergroup and forum restrictions, censorwords filters, full css customization for tag clouds on any page.

v2.0.6 - fixed problem affecting tags on quickedit
v2.0.5 - added missing space in tag link
v2.0.4 - made search options link more clear and other small stuff
v2.0.2 - small fix in bt_topic_tags template for forum list
v2.0.1 - fixed small bug in bt_topic_tags template

All tags are also indexed and searchable in boardtracker and on other boards through the global search option and tag clouds and rss feeds for tags will keep people coming back.

Made some small changes to the tags template to make the options link more visible since it seems some people didn't realise you could click it for 'advanced search' options!

Feedback on this mod or our others is welcome as always.

I installed it on www.gunandgame.com

I am playing around with the tag cloud. Hopefully it will get populated ASAP

Thanks for the mod!

Seems to be very useful from what I can see. I love the ability to edit and control the look of it!

v2.0.6 out now fixes a problem affecting tags only when using the ajax quick edit. To upgrade just import the product xml again, no manual edits needed.

nothing is showing up, it just says:

Sorry - no tag matches. Please try some different terms.

Even though i've writted tags into the new threads, for example, i saved a tag called Middlesbrough, i went to search for that tag and it didn't find anything.

It sometimes takes a bit till BoardTracker recognizes the tags.
They show now..

By the way, set your boardID (1113) if you want the search and tag clouds to be limited to your board.
