VERSION 4.1.2 RELEASED - prepare for real revolution in tags!

What this mod do:
Each time new post arrives (as new thread or reply) this mod will automatically add tags according to post content, title and existing tags in forum. It will also automatically add new tags to old threads.

In details:
It will add only tags which already exists in your forum if it will be included in your post title or content.

It works simple - if title or content includes tag word, then tag will be added to this thread.
Simple and fast. And also have lot of sophisticated functionalities - see below

In more details :
I.e. if you already have in forum such tags as autohypnosis, hypnosis, nlp, and submodalities. Now someone will write post like this (as reply or new thread):

Title: Hello NLP fans
Content: I like to use autohypnosis!

So this mod will automatically add for thread where post is written such tags: autohypnosis, nlp

nlp - cause it is in title; autohypnosis - cause it is in content

hypnosis is included in word autohypnosis, but this mod is smart enough to see that there is no separate word hypnosis neither in title nor in content - so it is not added
submodalities and any other existing tag is not added here, cause it is not included either in content or title of new post.

In more details with sophisticated functionalities :
Also this mod will add tags propositions for each word existing in post title which is not a tag yet. So for this example 2 tags propositions will be added: hello and fans.
You can approve tags propositions manually or set quarantine time after which propositions will automaticaly change to tags.

This mod allows you to define related words for each tag. It means that now tag word don't have to be included in post - it is enough if any of related words is included to add tag
I.e. if you have tag cat then you can define for it related words like: cats,kitty,kitties,lion,tiger. Now if any of those words appears in post then tag cat will be added

This is really great if you want have tag added no matter does word will be used singular or plural, or in which time it will be or maybe in your language you have to inflect words. Like in Polish we have: krowa, krowy, krowie, krową - for same word krowa. Now no matter how is inflected tag word in post and no matter in which language is your forum - this mod will appropriately add this tag!

You can also use this functionality to define tag packs. I.e. I want that every time when someone is writing about hypnosis or trans, booth hypnosis and trans tags to be added. In such case I simply define trans as related word for hypnosis tag and hypnosis as related word for trans tag

This mod also allows you to set default tags for forum. So each new and old thread in forum will be tagged by those tags It could be very useful - for example I have forum with good news and I want each thread in this forum to be tagged by newspaper, and news - so I simply write it in forum configuration and mod cares about everything! Is it great or just amazing?

Also with this mod You can just click one link in menu and it will add tags to all already existing threads. So If you was happy that now all new posts will be properly tagged, I have great news for you - now all threads will be properly tagged - even old one

Also every day this mod will automatically check does some new tags appears and in such case it will add new tags to all already existing threads which includes this keyword in content or title. So now not only all threads will be properly tagged for moment when you use functionality described above. It will keep all tags in all threads up to date continuously



Features:
  • Automatically adds tags to new posts/threads according to content, title and already existing tags in forum.
  • Allows you to set default tags for forum and will create those tags if don't exists
  • Tags related words functionality
  • Automatically creates tags propositions according to posts titles for words which are not tags yet
  • Configurable creation tags proposition (on/off)
  • Configurable quarantine time for tags propositions - after this time propositins will be automatically changed to tags (can be dissabled)
  • Allows manually approve and disapprove tags propositions
  • Aliases for setting tag min and max length with this mod options
  • Respects tag min and max length settings when creates tags propositions
  • Configurable set of ignored words during tags propositions creation
  • Allows you to create tags propositions from all posts titles
  • You can configure this mod to work only for new threads, or for each post - even replies.
  • Sophisticated keyword searching (will not add as tags words included in other words)
  • Configurable words separators for sophisticated searching
  • Automatically adds new tags to old threads (daily)
  • Allows you to add tags to all threads
  • Allows you to clear all tags associations to threads
  • Gives you alias to Tags form, so you can easy manage them
  • Gives you alias to Forum Manager form, so you can easily set default tags for forum
  • Creates new tags if defined ad default tags for forum and not exists
  • Allows you to add new tag and related words in one step.
  • You can configure, to how many threads should be added tags, per one page of execution of "Add tags to all threads" task
  • Respects Maximum Tags per Thread setting
  • Gives you alias to set native vBulletin Maximum Tags per Thread setting in one menu with other settings of this mod
  • Version checking supported
And commercial :
It is very useful for everyone who wants to keep an eye on tags, and doesn't want just each word from title automatically added.

So with this mod you know that only valuable tags are automatically added.

In some languages (like mine - Polish) same word is different according to whole sentence - i.e. in English is just cow and cows - in Polish we have: krowa, krowy, krowie, krową... And I didn't want all of those to make garbage of my tags, so I was not able to mod which was just adding every word which appears in title - it was too weak for me. I really wan to have only valuable tags ant that’s why I created this mod
Also with this mod thanks to related words functionality I'm sure that tag will be added no matter in which person, time or quantity the tag word is used in post! And also allows me to create groups of related tags!

When I wrote post I just to add tags myself, but also had to do this for other users who just add post and doesn't care about tags.
You know that? Now this mod will do it for you and also you will forget about tags writing, because after some time in most forums new tags are very rare, and mostly are used tags which already exist.

It was very important for me to have such solution and I want to share Enjoy!

I'm confused now.

So this modification doesn't add thread tags? - For example I assumed that if you created a thread I.E. 'Big Dog Eats Small Cat' this mod would add certain words from that title or post to the thread tags?

Mine just says None because none manualy been created when the thread was created

In your Admin CP, you can add tags to your tag database, if you have none in there it will not pull tags from threads and add them as tags.

When you add tags into your database it will find THOSE tags and identifiy them as tags with each new post or reply....this way you don't have random tags that no one would give a shit about like "the, and, there, was, how" but instead ones you identify as a tag like "cat, dog, small, big"

etc.

Got it?

This mod DOES add thread tags.

It is clearly described that this mod works with already existing tags in forum It will automatically assign tags to new and old threads and those tags must already exist. You can add new tags whenever you want - this mod will assign those to already existing threads.

I really don't know where your expectations and confusion comes from - jut read mod description to know how it works There you have simple example

Whole idea of this mod is to NOT CERATE any tag - only automatically assign existing one. This way you have always clean and appropriate tags. Creating automatically new tags will quickly make garbage in your tags.

Adding tag to thread and create tag those are 2 different things This mod doesn't create any tag, but it does automatically add tags to threads

That’s right + this mod will also assign new tags to old threads + it can assign all tags to all threads (where it's appropriate) + you can also add new tag when write post about new topic and after that this tag will be assigned to any similar topic

Admin CP -> Threads & Posts -> Tags

Honestly - I also never add tags this way I just add manually tags when I'm writing new thread and I'm sure that such tag doesn't exist, or when I see that it doesn't exist after writing the post. But as I wrote in one of post - when I started using tags, then after few posts I was using already existing tags over and over again - It would be hard to use new ones if forum is about specific topics So I made mod which do it automatically and assures me that none of new garbage tags will be added - only those keywords which I considered valuable and already made tags for theme And even if some new tag ocures this mod will add it to old topics

So with this mod I'm 100% sure that if people are writing about important stuff it will be tagged, and if somesthing new will be considered as important, then all related topics will be also tagged even if was created before new tag arrived

New release

2.1.0 Released I was asked does this mod can limit number of added tags. Such limitation already exists in vBulletin so I used it. In this release mod respects native vBulletin Maximum Tags per Thread setting and gives you alias to set it in one menu with other settings of this mod.

Enjoy! It's an order

Very helpful, thank you.

I have a small 'problem tho'.

My forum is using many non English characters, so i don't know if anything can be done regarding this:



Letters like:
č Ɖ etc.

Would it be possible to add option to remove and re-add tags in maintenance section?

Thank you,
D

I wonder why did somebody add tags like those in your forum...

I think you have some encoding problem. For me it looks like tags where added in one encoding and page is displayed in other one.

Is it possible to add functionality you asking for - you already have such thing in Admin CP -> Threads & Posts -> Tags you can there use Merge/Rename Selected - which is even better because don't remove anything - just change existing tag to have other keyword, but it is still assigned to every thread it was before

I think... Propably you use Auto Thread Tagger ?? and u don't have Filter / Replacement Characters like:

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

I have that filter and both Taggers work fine.
